The Last Internationale recover from a broken-into van with a charismatic show in Brooklyn

As the sun began to set on Brooklyn, NY the lights were just going on at Rough Trade NYC. What proceeded was a night of inventive musicians and passionate fans coming together to share a unique moment.

The night began with Boulder, Colorado’s A Shadow of Jaguar, a rock duo formed in 2015. Having both born roots in the Colorado music scene with several successful other musical projects, A Shadow of Jaguar, comprised of vocalist Brian Hubbert and drummer Andrew Oakley, are a unique act. With Brian’s homemade slide guitar and Andrew’s upbeat and ferocious drumming, ASOJ captivated the audience with a mix of rock and blues.

Next up was Brooklyn’s own indie rock quartet, Elliot & The Ghost. The crowd inched a little bit closer embracing their hometown rockers, vocalist William Thompson, drummer Daniel Edwards, guitarist Brett Giroux and bassist Connor Jones. Formed in 2013, and getting their start in dive bars, they have grown into a mixture of rock, surf pop and melodies that had everyone grooving to their music.

And then what happened next was indescribable. The Last Internationale took the stage and captivated the entire audience. Vocalist Delila Paz and guitarist Edgey Pires have been making music together since 2008, and joined by drummer Lisa Mongelli, they didn’t disappoint. Delila and Edgey have played with the likes of Tom Morello, even adopting ex Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk for an album, as well as opening for acts such as Robert Plant and the Who.

The haunting words of “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” slowly began to echo throughout the venue as a crowd became silent. Played at the beginning of their sets, the tape of Gil Scott-Heron’s poem/song immediately set the mood of what was to come. As the activist rock group took the stage, with Edgey flashing his “FREE PELTIER” guitar and Delila telling the audience that “the people have the power”, they erupted into punk rock driven tunes like “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Indian Blood” to the more folk driven “Wanted Man”. At one point, Delila stood on the stage alone with a keyboard and did a touching tribute to Chris Cornell as she sang “Like A Stone”.

Despite having their van broken into several days earlier and having laptops, cameras, hard drives w/ demos, studio and road footage from past touring and song ideas stolen, The Last Internationale left everything on the stage. They thankfully had finished recording their newest album and as we anxiously await the release date, you can visit their website www.tlinyc.com and receive 20% off on everything in their store (with code “THIEF20”) and support them in their efforts to recover some of their stuff and continue to bring us new content.
