Juicebox Vol 1, Side D, Track 1: “Eye the Pirate” by E57.
After countless hours of research into this strange phenomenon it seems we only have more questions than answers. We are at a loss, and so we pass our research notes and videos on to you in the hopes that maybe someone out there one day will be able to answer the age old question burning on everyone’s minds: What the heck is an E57? Why won’t anyone tell me? Please? Someone tell me.
From music festivals to record stores to a roller derby warehouse, you never know where you might run into E57. E57 is an alternative rock band from Scranton, PA made up of vocalist/rhythm guitarist Josh Zurek, lead guitarist Michael “Duds” McDonald, bassist Chris Sheerin, and drummer AJ Lanieski. E57 started out in 2014 playing locals shows and quickly built a following. They released their first EP, “Ep57” in 2016 to positive reception, which was followed up by the 2017 release Sjørøver. E57 known for their strong energetic live performances and melodic tones. We’ve seen them challenge other bands to social media scraps. We’ve seen a viking stand in for their vocalist. We’ve seen their guitarist win “Guitarist of the Year” at the Electric City Music Conference’s Steamtown Music Awards. We’ve even seen their drummer turn into a werewolf mid-performance. From headlining local shows to opening up for acts such as Tantric and Puddle of Mudd, E57 is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. What we haven’t known is that E57 has been hard at work in the background on their newest release, developing and evolving their sound and performance. They are certainly not an act to be missed!
We bring you Eye the Pirate by E57 from Pirate’s Cove at PA Escape Rooms. E57 tore the room apart so that they could fit inside, but don’t let that deter you from stopping by and trying out any of their four rooms. (Even Pirate’s Cove – we put it back together.) PA Escape Rooms describes themselves as an interactive, audience immersive entertainment experience that appeals to individuals, couples, bachelorette and bachelor parties, a group of friends or family, or team building for business. The challenge lies in solving the puzzle of the room by using the hidden clues.. The clock is ticking, intuition and communication is your way out.
