Photo Recap: Parenthetical Girls, The So So Glos & The Interest Group at PhilaMOCA

Despite technical difficulties, which led to Yohsuke Araki canning his acoustic guitar, The Interest Group put on an electrifying psych-pop set. May Cote gave the quintet’s performance a delicate branding with her fluttery vox, while PhilaMOCA projected tie-dye backdrops to visualize the band’s dreamlike presence. Following The Interest Group were The So So Glos, who had the whole crowd pogoing to their punk rock-inspired anthems. (BTW: There is no need to tell us again that the members of the band run Brooklyn DIY space Shea Stadium - we know! ;o) Portland, Oregon’s Parenthetical Girls closed the evening with a performance that was literally all over the place. Frontman Zac Pennington tested PhilaMOCA’s need for insurance by singing atop the less-than-sturdy speakers, scaling the walls to close out the show from the venue’s balcony, and at one point, bringing the performance outside onto 12th Street. Perhaps his most hilarious act of the night was tossing his lone cymbal at the ceiling, which caused a storm of black dust to rain from the building’s oversized antique air vent on top of his head (we’re guessing that he definitely needed a shower after the show). The different genres and sounds on Saturday night’s bill made for a very unique outing for all in attendance. You can check out our photos from the evening HERE. (Photo by Brandi Lukas)
