"It's not just our sound that has been causing people to come see our live performances, though it is a great contributor. We strive on every level to give the audience a visual experience as well as audio," she said, adding stage props like a life-size dragon, styrofoam head experiments, and "the occasional baby doll" can turn a few heads at their live performances.
"We believe a band can be a vehicle in which to inspire creativity throughout the masses, with the goal being to cause a positive and infectious creative movement," said Gregory. "Art inspires art."
The band is currently on its latest tour - "The Buffalo is Born! The Tour!" - and making stops in the New York area for the first time.
"We believe that people living amongst mountains share some common interests. In general, we feel slightly out of place in the big cities we play and more 'at home' in a place like Plattsburgh," said Gregory. "We have high hopes for our time in Plattsburgh."
(Editor's Note: The Bloodroots Barter will perform at the ROTA Studio and Gallery, 19 Clinton St., this Saturday, June 11, beginning at 8 p.m. The band will return to Plattsburgh for a show at the Monopole, 7 Protection Ave., Friday, June 17.
