Growing up in Jersey, founding members of Quiet Life were highly influenced by local favorite, Bruce Springsteen. His music was the reason that the band got into playing rock. After some time, the band grew away from Springsteen’s influence and began focusing more on folk elements in their music. Their latest album, out Jan. 25, is titled Big Green. To experience this band, along with Moondoggies, be sure to check out The Rock Shop in Brooklyn on Jan. 30. Tickets are $10 for the 7:30 p.m. show.
