this is it! the end of the year, which means Burnt Hills awakens from its hibernating slumber like a hungry jonesing beast, shambling out into the light after months inside the den. joining us this year will be HEADROOM from New Haven CT> >>(which in and of itself is a fine city of jammers and slammers)>>>and they are one of the finest bands walking this strange earth at the present moment. beloved/benighted Albany noise merchants Grab Ass Cowboys will heat it up and cool it down along the way. come out, come out, this show is not to be missed!!!!! to repeat::::::not to be missed!


Headroom first took flight in 2016 as the solo outlet for New Haven musician Kryssi Battalene, of well-regarded noise project Colorguard & guitarist for psychedelic voyagers, Mountain Movers. Headroom sprung forth from the fertile and underrated New Haven scene - a musical patchwork of punk, hardcore, noise & experimental music all sharing the same stages & DIY spots and creating a musical identity all their own.

Battalene's signature style of guitar has infiltrated & influenced a new crop of New Haven musicians; part Twisted Village / PSF Records-influenced white noise maelstrom, part nuanced, beautiful six-stringed draperies. Alongside Battalene's scorching guitar leads, Headroom's dense jams feature the crushing rhythm section of Ross Menzes & Rick Omonte (like Battalene, they're also members of the awesome Mountain Movers), and carefully plotted tonalities from rhythm guitarists Stefan Christensen and David Shapiro.
