Back in September, Brooklyn Comes Alive took over three venues in Williamsburg, New York City, offering up the characteristic tributes, supergroups, and all-around musical madness the event has become known for. One of our favorite sets from the weekend was led by the charismatic songstress Hayley Jane of Hayley Jane & The Primates, who took on the persona of various high-profile female rockers during her Bitch! Women of the 90’s tribute set.
For this captivating throwback set, Hayley Jane teamed with Kung Fu’s guitarist Tim Palmieri, bassist Chris DeAngelis, and drummer Adrian Tramontano, as well as Pink Talking Fish keyboardist Richard James for a nostalgic and impassioned walk down memory lane, revisiting the 90’s in all its grungy glory. Hayley Jane showed off her immense vocal talents, masterfully taking on the vocal duties for a number of hits from the era by powerhouse female artists ranging from TLC to Alanis Morissette to No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani. You can check out full video from Hayley Jane’s Bitch! Women of the 90’s tribute set below, which was captured by Live For Live Music’s own Rex Thomson. Enjoy!
If you want to catch Hayley Jane live and rockin’ out 90’s-style, make sure to catch her on Friday, December 29th, when she descends on New York City with The Primates for a pre-Phish performance at The Cutting Room titled “Party Of Five – Tribute To The 90’s.” The fiery vocalist and her merry band of Primates will pay homage to some of their favorite artists from the era while mixing in some of their original material, and it’ll all go down just a few short blocks from Phish‘s show that evening at Madison Square Garden.
