Weekend Warrior, February 10 - 12

Weekend Warrior, February 10 - 12

Allison Crutchfield & The Fizz will be celebrating the recent release of her new album Tourist in This Town (Merge) with a headlining performance this evening in the hallowed halls of the First Unitarian Church. The LP features contributions from Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital, The Afterglows) and Joey Doubek (Pinkwash); both of whom are included in tonight’s loaded lineup. Tourist, which is currently The Deli Philly’s Record of the Month, radiates capturing the sadness of relationships that have run their course. Yet, the cathartic, empowering aftermath, exposed through the enduring strength of revealing, thoughtful songwriting, creates a transformative energy.
Also, on the same day that their debut LP Friend of a Stranger is released via Born Losers, Louie Louie mark the occasion with a record release party tonight at PhilaMOCA. The quartet finds balance between the honed-harmonies reminiscent of the golden age of classic girl groups, while exhibiting fierce, authoritatively catchy, garage-surf sounds. Opening the festivities will be the sticky, swaying garage-punk of Beat Jams and the guitar-igniting, punk onslaught of Dark Web.  
We know. We just made your decision about what to do tonight a lot more difficult. - Michael Colavita
