A writer for the New York Post might be one of Escort's biggest fans, calling them "the city's best live band." Escort formed after Dan Balis and Eugene Cho '98 met at Vassar. "[A]n Escort show isn't hot only because it's rare," says the article. "It's hot because the band is the most exciting dance machine New York's produced in a while."
Balis, Cho and their bandmates (including Jon Natchez of Beirut) will be playing the Prospect Park Band Shell on Thursday in Brooklyn.
