Video of the Day: The Tea Party

Rock and Roll. Its aggression and cathartic capabilities are unquestioned, and undoubtedly connected. Canadian rockers The Tea Party are a power trio with a melange of influences, from Led Zeppelin to The Doors to the exotic. And, they rock out about as well as any band ever has, with an aura of mystery and mysticism wafting around more traditional rock techniques.

This live performance of “Sister Awake” and “Winter Solstice,” essentially encapsulates the entirety of their singular oeuvre, and includes a bonus interlude of The Rolling Stones‘ “Paint it Black.” And, when all is said and done, it ROCKS.

The band has gotten back together in fits and starts over recent years, and has scheduled a handful of live shows.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
