HUFF THIS! is a dream-thrash band fronted by Alison Clancy, a creature who prances, prowls, and gets into trouble. The music is a visceral collage of electro-acoustic cello by infamous composer Chrissy Lancaster, spastic, sweat inducing drums by Tony Long, and Sonny Ratcliff creeping all over the bass. Alison washes it over with dreamy piano, guitar, and bipolar vocals. This band will make you dance and let you cry. Tis the season to be merry and spread the love! Sometimes this means spreading the wealth....All proceeds of the concert go to Occupy Wall Street. Other bands playing that night are Dangerous Muse, Eva and Her Virgins, Copal, and Shoot The Freak. This concert is being officially sponsored and promoted by and has been stirring up quite a bit of controversy within the movement.

HUFF THIS! recorded their first album in 2008 at Graham Nash's home studio. HUFF THIS! has since been in slow germination for a few years. Last year HUFF THIS! was on hiatus as Alison worked on the breakout pop project Electric Child (which landed on the scene at CMJ and was sponsored by SPIN Magazine to play on bills with TV On The Radio, The Kills, and Skrillex at SXSW) Alison then took some time away from music to dance at The Metropolitan Opera and tour with ZviDance through Israel and Poland. But now she is back to crafting the moody sounds of HUFF THIS! this with an incredible cast of NYC musicians.
