Hey everyone, thanks for checking in. Hasn't been a whole lot of activity on this web space lately. That's because there hasn't been much to report. That all seems to be changing as a miserable summer winds down to make room for a shitty autumn. The incoming cool air is thick with inspiration and big amps are going to start buzzing anew.
Anyone visiting the Borscht Belt this weekend should check KURT VILE AND THE VIOLATORS at the All Tomorrow's Parties Music Festival.
Those in a NY state of mind should go check BIRDS OF MAYA for a rare trip up I-95 to bring their greazy circus to the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday September 6.
On Monday September 20, all of Philadelphia will be attending the Home Blitz gig at a place called the Ox. Australians Total Control and UV Race are also on the bill. Likewise, the Lehigh Valley's Pissed Jeans are playing.
Keep your eyes peeled for new records coming out soon by Philadelphia's PURLING HISS. Richie Records // TestosterTunes #27 will be a real banger called Hissteria.
Soon after... a single by BRAINWASHED YOUTH called The Trilogy. More on that later.
And on a bittersweet note, Philadelphia's finest two-hour weekly radio broadcast, MUSIC FOR YOUR METHLAB, is packing up its signal and going home. People with jobs have been fortunate to hear a fine mix of timeless tunes, sporting interests, weather reports, and tastefully little whacky banter during Thursday morning's commute for the past four years. We're all gonna miss it. Drive time won't be same. The next few week's should prove to be must-listen radio. So tune in for giveaways, songs by the Dicks, and a very special appearance from The Monthly Visitor.
