FRIENDSHIP PARK with GREATER ALEXANDER, and JOHN KATONA at The Pike Room



FRIENDSHIP PARK

In between Justin Lawes and Joshua Jouppi sat a park. Growing up mere miles apart, their common disposition towards spending far too much time in front of computers is what inevitably brought them together—to Friendship Park. Animators by trade, the digital duo use their backgrounds in progressive rock and folk for good and never for evil.

Now, in the night, beneath the glow of many pixels, they punch their keys, turn knobs, strum strings, and make strange sounds with their vocal chords until something seemingly of worth comes out.

Time has separated the pals by many miles—hailing from Brooklyn and Detroit respectively. However, the two have managed to create math folk pop jams by calling upon all the powers of The Internet while wielding the mutual understanding of friendship. They aim to dish out some boom bop dancing songs with a side of sobering realism; realism that encourages the listener to consider whether we should boogie harder or shan’t been dancing at all.
