Morning Theft is: Daniel Byrne - Drums, J. Patrick Holden - Bass, Robert Holmes - Vocals/Guitar, Peter Kim - Lead Guitar/Vocals

Old friends of Gothamist, (they played our Movable Hype 1.5 show way back when!), Morning Theft is still chugging through the New York scene playing their inspired brand of Pixies-meets-Nirvana rock. They've recently entered the Emergenza Festival...a national battle of the bands of sorts. This Friday at the Knitting Factory, they will be playing in the semis for a chance to advance to the finals at Webster Hall. They'll be on at 8:00 sharp. Come out and show your support!

You can have a listen to some of their stuff on Myspace.
