Things started really heating up at Cheap Storage last Saturday (1.11.14) when the Brooklyn garage/indie/Motown/soul act, The Love Supreme, brought a whole new type of Bushwick intensity to the stage, covering both classic songs such as Wilson' Pickett's "Land of a Thousand Dances" and hitting it hard with originals in a style that is both raw and sugary sweet.
The packed crowd at Cheap Storage was shaking and jiving as various forms of smoke circulated and clouded the warehouse space into a dreamy haze. Wiggle room from front to back became scarce. The energy exploded.
And for a brief moment or two - it felt like what Rock & Roll must have originally felt like - underground, sweaty, sexy, and real.
Then the cops came.

They let the band finish playing their current song, which happened to be the new single "I Want You" - but then were forced to cut their set short - and what's worse, the cops escorted people out of Cheap Storage immediately.
A line formed by the merch table where people were hoping to grab a copy of the new 7" release on their way out, but the cops halted this - forced people out the door - and no one was really able to pick up a copy.
All told, it was a legendary moment and a glorious way to release new music to the world.
This band is just starting to heat up.
