Weekend Warrior, August 9 - 11

Weekend Warrior, August 9 - 11

We’ve certainly been getting our fair share of talented musician transplants. One of the finest lyricists from the new crop of artists that we’ve come across is former Grand Rapids, Michigan native Sam Cook-Parrott, a.k.a. Radiator Hospital. The heart-on-his-sleeve singer-songwriter captures true raw emotion in such beautifully poetic verses that could easily make the burliest man’s man shed a tear. However, these touching lyrics can easily be lost on some of the tracks of his new LP Something Wild (Salinas Records) because of the jangly, upbeat strums of major power chords from his guitar and his new driving rhythm section. Radiator Hospital will be celebrating the album’s release tonight at West Philly’s Great Indoors alongside labelmates/housemates Swearin’ and Batty, who are also dropping a demo release. Don’t sleep on this one! Great Indoors, (Please contact ghostlightbooking@gmail.com for more info.), 7pm, $5 Donation, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
