Birds of Maya Opening for U.S. Girls at PhilaMOCA Feb. 15

Birds of Maya Opening for U.S. Girls at PhilaMOCA Feb. 15

If you want to get to the foundation of Philly’s current psych-garage rock music community, then you need to look no further than Birds of Maya. The eardrum-bursting experimental blues rock trio has been melting faces for years now, while spawning beloved nationally/internationally-recognized acts like Purling Hiss and Spacin’. Though performances from the hard-rockin’ crew may come few and far between lately (however, the good news is that they'll have a new album coming soon - nicee!), you’ll have the opportunity to catch the forefathers in action tonight at PhilaMOCA. Bird of Maya will be supporting former Philly resident and Deli fave U.S. Girls, a.k.a. Meghan Remy. The once lo-fi, solo songstress is returning with a more polished sound this time around backed by a full band, which is made up of her hubby Slim Twig, a.k.a. as Max Turnbull, and his band, who will also be performing a set of their own this evening. It’s going to be a great night of music in Philly. You’ll most likely find me bouncing back and forth between PhilaMOCA and Pissed Jeans’ release show at Underground Arts. I’m really happy that the venues are so close to each other (just the right amount of distance for a puff and a swig). PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $7 - $10 donation, All Ages (Video by Tiffany Yoon) - Q.D. Tran
