Petal Drops Anchor at PhilaMOCA March 6

Petal Drops Anchor at PhilaMOCA March 6

Tonight, Petal, a.k.a. Kiley Lotz, fills out a bill of acts similarly rooted in emotive rock. Each group has their own take on influences young and old, forging tunes that sound fresh and familiar. Lotz’s versatility as a songwriter is often on display, from her debut LP Shame, released in September on Run For Cover Records, to her use of a rotating backing band. From slow-burning ballads to sparse acoustic laments, Petal’s songs are anchored by the musical Swiss army knife of Kiley Lotz’s commanding voice. Also, on the bill is Philly’s The Superweaks, whose power-pop braggadocio and crunchy guitar riffs always make for a good time. A simple name tweak is certainly not stopping this band, who just last year were on tour with Brand New, from making noise. The pairing is not surprising, considering the nostalgia factor that binds these bands and fans alike. The show is headlined by Somos from Boston, who recently embarked on a tour with Petal and The Superweaks as support. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12, All Ages - Adam G.
