Underground Alert - COLUMBIA

Columbia are a two-man rhythm machine, made up of Jett Drolette (bass/vocals) and Ryan Sartin (drums/vocals). The duo intertwine ESG-like bass grooves with a cool 1981 downtown vibe and a modern post-punk synergy. Drolette and Sartin met in Bushwick and are making the neighborhood their musical haven. But they would probably be offended if I quickly dubbed them a Bushwick band, as their biggest gig yet was playing to a sweaty crowd on an East Village rooftop last week.

Sartin hails from Kansas City, which sharply contrasts Drolette's east coast precision. I think it's a match made in heaven.

Check out the new track "South Bronx Sways", now streaming at their myspace page.

Columbia dates:

Oct 17 - Vanishing Point, Brooklyn
Oct 31 - Bushwick Starr, Brooklyn
Nov 21 - Lit Lounge, Manhattan
