The story of Public Access T.V. seems like it was written for an episode of Behind The Music. A group of friends drop out of high school and catch a New York City bound bus with dreams of starting a band. What follows is a frenzy of press hype, label bidding wars, a critically-acclaimed debut album, sold-out tours, and festival slots around the world.
But as all viewers of any music doc surely know, there is always a darker side to the story, and PATV is no exception. Addiction, recovery programs, public brawls (mostly with one-another), a devastating explosion that destroyed all their earthly possessions, and a car crash behind the wheel of an 80’s convertible…a lifetime packed into one-album cycle. Now for part two, Public Access TV’s sophomore album: Street Safari.
Public Access T.V. will be coming to the Timbre Room with The Soft White Sixties on Tuesday, March 27th. You can find tickets to this 21-and-over event here.
