Rotary Downs Returns to NYC this Week

Fresh off the heels of a successful run of shows during New Orleans' JazzFest - including a high-profile slot at the Fairgrounds - the Big Easy's favorite indie-rock band Rotary Downs makes its return to New York City. This will be their second visit to Gotham City, their first marked by two remarkable shows at the Knitting Factory and Magnetic Fields as well as an appearance on public radio's Studio 360 that was heard around the world.

Rotary Downs is leading the charge in a Post-Katrina rock'n'roll resurgence for New Orleans. In the Fall of 2006, the band released Chained To The Chariot , an album that survived formidable elements and obstacles. Original tapes were rescued from the deluge and evacuated with the band to Lafayette, LA where the album was completed. Chariot is a masterpiece with commentary on many different elements of life in South Louisiana and has quickly become a favorite among fans and critics.

"Emerging fully formed and ready for radio, Chariot's mix of ear-pleasing pop structures with a now to-be-expected experimental bent marks it as New Orleans' best rock record in recent memory." - Gambit Weekly, May 2007
