Described as one of the hottest clubs in Manhattan, The Lively hosted two interesting music projects for the night of Friday April, 8th, 2016. Electro rock act Rubycon and the electronic chill out solo project MMBLR, were announced for a special event, That kind of gig that specialized music blogs like to attend to meet new bands and creative projects. That kind of must see shows that we can't miss.

By 8 pm, the night started with the electronic music project by producer Alex Beckmann, MMBLR. Beckmann music is an introduction across the cryptic world of the spectral music, and chill out. An experimental game of ambient sounds, sensual electronic experiences, and an improvisational element of jazz. Based in New York, and member of the band Snowmine, Beckmann performance was supported by a guitar player and a bassist.
