Figo
Figo Scandalized by experimental alternative and electronic music, New York City introduces FIGO - a live act that fuses intense rock energy with pounding electro-beats and samples, influenced by groups including Primal Scream, The Misfits, and The Chemical Brothers. When not performing live, FIGO doubles as a DJ crew, devastating club dancefloors nationwide with heavy house with punk and rock mixes. With a self-titled EP self-released in 2007, FIGO has been busy garnering a strong fan-base through both live and DJ gigs at clubs across the country. Since forming in 2006, FIGO has appeared at major music festivals including Winter Music Conference, New York's Amsterjam, and South By Southwest, and have shared bills with artists including The Presets, She Wants Revenge, Trail Of Dead, and Foo Fighters. In early 2008, the band’s current single ‘PLAZA’ was remixed by acclaimed New York producer/DJ Tommie Sunshine, who will also be producing the band’s debut record releasing in Fall 2008. FIGO is vocalist/guitarist Parag Bhandari, bassist Paul Daly, guitarist Robert Rivadeneira, programmer Ryan Jones, and drummer Richard Stuverud.
