Gleasons Drift @ Cyber Cafe West

176 Main St.
Binghamton, New York 13905

Just as The Replacements will be forever linked to Minneapolis or The Meat Puppets to the Southwest Desert, Gleasons Drift is intrinsically defined by a small-town, rough-hewn esthetic filtered through a transistor radio channeling 1970s rock from an all-night far-off Philadelphia radio station. Their love of unblemished bar-band optimism smashed headlong into twelve-bar blues and country feels right at home next to coal region Pennsylvania’s best-known exports – beer, pierogies, polkas and boilo.
