Getting to Know Your Artists (Active Bird Community)

With its founding members from Hastings-on-Hudson, and based in Brooklyn, Active Bird Community can only be described as a dynamic band. Coming from the world of Lo-Fi rock music that has come to define a generation of alternative musicians in the twenty-teens, Active Bird Community made its first mark on the music world with its 2015 album I’ve Been Going Swimming. Since then, the band has been an unstoppable force, consisting of four members: Tom D’Agustino (vocals, songwriting), Andrew Wolfson (lead guitar, song writing), Zach Slater (bass), and Quinn McGovern (drums). The three founding members (D’Agustino, Slater and Wolfson) have been together since high school, and with the collegiate add-on of McGovern, the band has only become stronger. In addition to their 2015 debut, they have released two more albums, their 2017 sophomore release Stick Around and 2018’s Amends. Their latest release came out just this year, a single called “Somewhere” featuring Samia. The band can be seen on May 3rd on the Palooza stage. We hope you’ll come join them.
