Legendary Beatles promoter Sid Bernstein will present sizzling independent band Such As Us at a CD release party at Patsy’s Pizzeria, 2287 First Ave. near 118th Street, on Thursday, Aug. 18 at 7:30 p.m. There is no cover or minimum.

Come see New York/New Jersey-area band Such As Us give a special, red-hot performance of original alternative rock songs from their upcoming CD, “…In this one cold blink of time…” Comprised of seven talented, well-seasoned musicians, the group’s songs have sophisticated lyrics that deliver messages about life in these times. Their sound is derived from beautiful harmonies and a rich array of instruments, punctuated by a percussion section.

Bernstein found himself championing Such As Us immediately after seeing their inspired performance at a New York City nightclub. He presented the band at Patsy’s on June 1 to a packed room, and they received a callback from the happy restaurant owners. And voila! This CD release party. The band has also been asked to perform at Patsy’s again for a special anniversary celebration on a date to be announced.
