Philly show NOT to be missed: High Waisted, Thin Lips, Weatherhead, Free Throw and SOMOS at The Foundry TONIGHT!!!

25 Aug
High Waisted

Don’t miss High Waisted, Weatherhead, Thin Lips, Free Throw and SOMOS at The Foundry tonight! Show starts at 7:30PM.

Tonight is a big night for Philly music fans, if you weren’t planning on partying this evening change your plans because five rad bands are in town playing a show together TONIGHT at The Foundry.

Among these bands is one that has one of my favorite band names of all time- High Waisted. These surf pop rock and rollers will be getting the party (and your dance workout) started early tonight when they open for SOMOS along with Thin Lips, Weatherhead, and Free Throw. High Waisted will be performing songs from their new album On Ludlow. The album has 12 tracks of pure, upbeat surf rock and pop songs with cheeky lyrics including “Shithead” and “Party in the Back”. The album is a summer road trip / beach day must-have and will have you dreaming of summer all winter long.

The show starts at 7:30PM tonight and you can get your tickets here or at the door. It’s a rarity to have this many great bands on one bill so make sure you get there on time so you don’t miss any of these stellar bands.

morning jam: NZCA Lines “Persephone Dreams”

14 Oct

NZCA Lines

It was like Christmas came early when NZCA Lines released their new track “Persephone Dreams”. As I was counting the hours here waiting for new music (listen to the track and you will understand later-I promise), the now trio released six minutes and twelve magnificent seconds of pure bliss. “Persephone Dreams” is an epic, musical journey that will make your heart explode. Between the vocals, the harmonies, the keys, the drums, the steel drum surprise (!!!!), the lyrics, this song is an absolute dream made for listening on repeat. No seriously, I put this song on repeat on Spotify for literally 8 hours and it still gets better with age. The single is the first taste of the upcoming album Infinite Summer due out of Memphis Industries. Listen to the track below now:

Love the song as much as I do? Memorize the lyrics below before their upcoming show at Oslo Hackney in London on December 14th! This will be the first show leading up to NZCA Line’s upcoming album Infinite Summer due out on Memphis Industries. They will be supporting Dutch Uncles and Outfit. For tickets and other information follow the event on Songkick here!

NZCA Lines “Persephone Dreams” Lyrics:
If only the wind slowed down
I’d feel you were here somehow
It carries me back, straight into you
If only silently
You were carried on the air I breathe
Hurry me back

Are you ready now
Do you really want the night to end
Only when I’ve been counting the hours here waiting for you
Are you ready now
Do you really want it all to change
Only when I’ve been counting the hours here waiting for you
My love

Over the ground like fire
Do we generate this light
That only surrounds, closer to you
We separate like halves
I see what you are dreaming of
Hurry me back
And tell me you’ll wait til this can’t be broken
And tell me you’ll wait til the time is chosen

morning jam: AVAN LAVA “Wanna Live” + Show Recap!

1 Jun

avanlava by solidstares

Wow. I don’t know what to say besides AVAN LAVA are an incredible band, in the studio and especially on stage.

When Avan Lava took the stage at Milkboy last Wednesday, I knew it was going to be good…but it wasn’t just good, it was fucking spectacular. The show started with full force and stayed that way all the way through. Playing most of their new album Make It Real (out now on Atlas Chair Records), the band showered us with confetti cannons, an epic light show, and synchronized dances. Thanks to the electric energy from the band, the Philly crowd got a dance workout worthy of Studio54.

Lead singer TC Hennes has an incredible, boundless voice that soaring whether he was dancing, jumping out into the crowd, or straight-up standing on his head doing yoga poses on the stage. You can tell that the band is having an amazing time together and the show becomes the ultimate dance party. The crowd did not want the show to end, and luckily the band agreed to an encore.

Avan Lava then ended their show strong with their cover of one of my favorite songs by Mark Ronson and the Business Intl. “Somebody To Love Me”. If you haven’t seen this band yet, make sure you are closely following them on Songkick to see when they are coming to your town. If you love to dance, it’s an experience you do not want to miss.

Pretty Vicious are back with a ferocious new single “It’s Always There” released as a 7″ vinyl via Ignition Records on Record Store Day! The young band from Wales keep releasing tracks that will knock you into the middle of next week and this three minute eight second jam is no different.

Pretty Vicious will be playing a slew of shows in the UK in May and June. The band added a second date at London’s Barfly due to high demand and will be playing two of my favorite festivals, The Great Escape in Brighton and Dot-to-Dot Festival which I was lucky enough to attend twice last year.
