New York City's rock and roll sensation, TIGER MOUNTAIN, win GrammyFest showcase

New York City's rock and roll sensation, TIGER MOUNTAIN, won a local GrammyFest showcase when they performed at Arlene's Grocery on Wednesday February 12 as part of their February Wednesday Night Residency. The event took place weekday nights between February 3 -13 in six different NYC-area venues, including Arlene's Grocery, CB's Gallery, The Living Room, and The Bitter End. The event showcased today's cutting-edge culture and tomorrow's Grammy nominees. GrammyFest was a month-long celebration of the Grammys' return to The Big Apple on February 23.

At their concert, TIGER MOUNTAIN played songs off their debut CD Analog Heads Gone French (Lucky Cat Records), which has been receiving rave reviews. BABY SUE.COM says: " 'Analog Heads Gone French' has an immediate appeal in that it was produced to perfection and captures the essence of the band's spontaneity." TIGER MOUNTAIN competed against three other bands at Arlene's: Stand, The Damnwells (which features the ex- drummer of Whisky Town) and The Dead Giveaways. The judges were a panel of three music business professionals from the independent side of the industry - college agents, college radio promoters, and indie label personnel. One band at each venue was selected to win prizes, with TIGER MOUNATIN winners at their show. Singer Tyler Lenane said: "It was a shock to win over the other bands but very rewarding professionally and personally. It's great when both the public and the industry appreciate our music." As winners, TIGER MOUNTAIN won a unique behind-the-scenes visit to the 2003 Grammy dress rehearsals, free recording time at Unique Recording Studios, and free CD duplication from DiscMakers.

Upcoming concert appearances for TIGER MOUNTAIN are as follows: the final Residency performance at Arlene's Grocery Wednesday February 26 at 10PM; Friday March 21st at Luxx in Brooklyn; Saturday March 22nd at Middle East in Boston; and Friday April 11th at North Six in Brooklyn (with Stellastarr).
