CMJ Night 2 feat Black Taxi

Longtime favorites of RethinkPopMusic, Black Taxi treated the packed Bowery Electric crowd to one of the more memorable performances of CMJ.

Armed with a rebellious spirit, unbridled energy, and a slew of cameo instruments for frontman Ezra Huleatt to use at his disposal (bass drum, tambourine, trumpet, keyboard, harmonica, & maraca), Black Taxi achieves what Panic At the Disco! might hope to… with more creativity. Not to dwell on the charismatic, if not flamboyant lead, but Huleatt seems to possess (in addition to his stunning resemblance to Brit from Flight of the Conchords) the spirit, poise, and unique appeal to become a true rock star. This is best showcased on the dazzling single “Shoeshine” and every other song on the setlist to be honest. Absolutely try to catch the Brooklyn natives in action if you find them playing a venue near you — actually, travel to see them. Now!
