Bomb the Music Industry!

Bomb the Music Industry! (abbreviated BTMI!) is a DIY punk/ska band from Baldwin, Nassau County, New York. BTMI! can often be found playing in basements and other underground shows, although they have a thriving fan base and have scored plenty of big gigs--not to mention some big name publicity, including the Washington Post and The Alternative Post (not AP). The crazy concoction of heavy keyboard, drums and a voice from lead singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist Jeff Rosenstock makes their music unique and insanely addictive.

Bomb the Music Industry! (abbreviated BTMI!) is a DIY punk/ska band from Baldwin, Nassau County, New York. BTMI! can often be found playing in basements and other underground shows, although they have a thriving fan base and have scored plenty of big gigs--not to mention some big name publicity, including the Washington Post and The Alternative Post (not AP). The crazy concoction of heavy keyboard, drums and a voice from lead singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist Jeff Rosenstock makes their music unique and insanely addictive.

The gang of BTMI! are a crazy bunch who have released five full-lengths and two EPs worth of pure punk goodness for download free on their website. Rosenstock has been quoted saying, "Making the music doesn't cost us anything so why should we charge people to listen to it?" BTMI! until recently have been unsigned and they have done their recording in Rosenstock's bathroom with an iMac. Although they have a label it is run out of a garage and Rosenstock still prefers the acoustics of his bathroom to a studio and of course the music is still free. As for merchandise, bring a blank shirt to one of their shows and they will make a custom spray-painted shirt for free.

BTMI! consists of Jeff Rosenstock, Rick Johnson, Matt Kurz, John DeDomenici, Laura Stevenson, Mike Costa, Sean McCabe, Sean Qualls, James Lynch, Neil Callaghan, Dave Solomon, Jason Rutcofsky, Jenna Beatty, Steve Foote, Christine Mackie, Jeff Tobias, and Craig Howe, just to name a few. « hide
