There, There is New York City's premier Radiohead tribute act, playing songs from throughout the band's iconic multi-decade catalogue. The band, formed in the late summer of 2017, is a diverse mix of music veterans and newcomers to the NYC music scene. There, There is: Joe Edelmann (known for his Radiohead-centric YouTube channel) on lead vocals, guitar and keyboards, Ben Shin (formerly of well-known NYC Pink Floyd Tribute, Us Not Them) on lead guitars, vocals and keyboards, Colin Mahoney (formerly of The Plain Janes) on drums and percussion, Jay Lynch (veteran of multiple NYC original and cover bands) on bass and Cory Furlong (of Burne Holiday) on guitars, vocals and percussion.
Gigantic - A Pixies Tribute formed in November 2017 sort of by accident. Joe the singer of the band pretty much learned to sing by singing along to Pixies records growing up. His voice naturally sounds a lot like Frank (Black) Francis. The other 3 members just so happened to be musical and math aficionados and took the task of learning Pixies songs very seriously. They set out to reproduce the music on the records, not just a representation of them. It's something that I'm not sure if the actual Pixies ever really did for their live shows.

It all sort of just clicked and they started getting booked for gigs all over the East Coast from NYC to DC up until the pandemic. During that break, the members all started doing other things, so much so that when they were able to gig again there wasn't enough time to dedicate to Gigantic. That is until now. Their long-awaited return begins this winter 2023 after almost a 4-year hiatus. Here are some reviews, come and see what people were raving about.

Michael Dorian (January 2019): The band was nothing less than outstanding on New Year's Eve at Littlefield's in Brooklyn. From their opening song (Cactus) to their last number (Gouge Away), they were dynamite. If you've never seen them, do yourself a favor and get to a show. You'll be thrilled you did. I daresay The Pixies themselves would be impressed at how spot-on Gigantic is.

Kenny Hill (March 2019): If the actually Pixies wanted to be reminded of how they were in their prime they need to see Gigantic live ... Absolutely amazing! ... I would see them again and again.

Chris Harford (February 2018): Gigantic leaned on the deep tracks of the Pixies catalog with precision and white-hot passion, each band member brings it full tilt. I enjoyed every second of the show and even if you are unfamiliar with the Pixies this band will entertain you to the hilt.
