The best kept secret in music


""In Da Club" Bands to watch"

“…they quite simply rock like bastards. Picture a cross between The Pretenders and Joan Jett on one hand …and Gang of Four on the other... Impressive even at only their second gig, the past six months have seen Go To Town develop a tight set of original material. With recording done at The Walkmen's Marcata Studios, and label showcases in progress, this lot are young-ins to watch out for.” --- Joshua Kruter - Rock Feedback

"Like A Rolling Stone's "Top of the Pops 10""

“8 Go To Town …Before you know it, you're addicted and willing to do anything to hear that "Bow Tie Daddy" ditty again. It isn't pure rock, but it's not pure New-Wave-revivalism either…There are musical chops here which should not be messed with, talent which goes beyond mere imitation or riddled with influences. The passion which this band has for what they do comes through to you on their 5-song EP loud and clear. The kicker to this all? GTT was in fact produced by none other than that guru made famous by The Strokes, JP Bowersock. Sly indeed.” - Sara Weber - Like A Rolling Stone

"Go To Town "Miles Per Hour""

“… I listen to so many EPs, that I wish they would give us a little more. Especially when the songs are as appetizing as this 5 song EP. …Raspy female vocals keep the NYC sound real, while the swinging guitar/bass keep the songs rocking...” - Lio - Crashin' In

"Hell Yeah, Let's Go To Town"

“…so take note, any interests should jump on this band and grab ‘em before someone else does! They’ve got it all! …listening to the initial mix, it wasn’t just one song or another, it feels whole, a complete body of work. The music has a great feeling to it…” --- Lucky Lawler - New York Waste

"Go To Town"

“Go To Town are probably the best band in the world… They play catchy trash-blues rock… the good music just comes naturally… Oh, everyone in this band is so pretty, it’s devastating.” ----- Sheri Barclay - That's What I Call Hits

"Live From New York"

“If Chrissie Hynde sang for Oingo Boingo, it might sound a lot like Go To Town, and for such a tough spot in the lineup, they really stuck out... Their set was loaded with great hooks and a pumping, ska-like bass line… You'd think they'd been doing this for 20 years.” ---------Bridget McGoldrick - Women Who Rock

"NY Post weekly picks"

"...For a more frenzied affair, head to Go To Town at the Coral Room... An unsigned NYC act, this foursome is fronted by brass-in-pocket blonde Laura Schurich who kicks it on the mike with Chrissie Hynde vocals backed by furious guitars. "Devastating," from their new EP is an irresistible dance rock tune." -- Mary Huhn, New York Post 'Playlist' column, Friday July 16, 2004, pg 45 - Mary Huhn


Self Titled EP (Self Released)


Feeling a bit camera shy


For two years, Go To Town has been lighting audiences’ pants on fire in clubs all over the Lower East Side and Williamsburg. Someone get a fire extinguisher.

Having ignited The Mercury Lounge, The Knitting Factory, and CBGBs with their explosive energy, GTT is building a steady following and a teeth-chattering buzz. GTT is brass tacks, no frills, all-power rock’n roll in the classic combo form--vox, guitars, bass, and drums--no gimmicks, no keyboards, or bassists moonlighting as slick-haired DJs.

They create airtight arrangements with songwriting that celebrates the lean simplicity of The Ramones, the sweaty, late night Brooklyn house party energy of ESG, and the striking lyrical imagery of David Byrne. GTT makes unpretentious pop music that is sharp and sexy.

In 2003, GTT recorded their debut EP with friend JP Bowersock, proclaimed guru for The Strokes, and guitarist in Ryan Adams’ band, the Cardinals (I’m sorry, did I drop that?). Their song "Bow Tie Daddy" caught the attention of local DJs at East Village Radio, and was soon getting airplay as far away as Australia (4ZZZ 102.1FM) and Alaska (KSUA). The video for "Bow Tie Daddy" was featured as a finalist in ManiaTV.com’s "Battle of the Bands" contest (We hadn’t heard of it either). Most recently, GTT appeared on the Manhattan-based Cable Access show Fearless Music.

In April of 2005, GTT returned to The Walkmen's Marcata Studios and cut six new tracks, beginning work on their long-awaited full-length album.

All of them 25 years old, Go To Town is: Laura Schurich, vocals; Gin Galletti, bass; John Kleber, guitar; and David Jack Daniels, drums.
