This six-piece band Battlehooch has an interesting style, between pop and rock, with orchestral elements sprinkled in. The band, based out of San Francisco, is currently on a national tour to promote their recent self-titled LP. Battlehooch is known for their online videos, where they play concerts in vacant areas like an Arizona mountaintop or an alley in Portland. They will be playing multiple shows in the area including the Sinister Foxy CMJ showcase at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg on Oct. 19 and a performance at Piano’s on Oct. 25. Both gigs begin at 9 p.m.
