Hop Along Record Release Show at FUC June 1

Hop Along Record Release Show at FUC June 1

Hop Along are celebrating the release of their album Get Disowned (which you can read about in our review HERE) at First Unitarian tonight, along with Little Big League, Mary Lattimore and Bandname. On the continuum of bands who specialize in the soft-loud dichotomy, Hop Along  - fresh off the set of their debut music video for “Tibetan Pop Stars” (below) -  is winning a good amount of Philly’s attention. They come at it by way of Frances Quinlan’s gossamer vocals, paired with punk and pop-folk campfire sounds, setting an achingly introspective mood that stays behind even when the band careens between tiptoeing, unhurried interludes and angular outbursts. Their supporting acts are a collage of both the art-punk and delicate folk ends of Hop Along’s spectrum. Bandname bring the good times with Philly garage rock and roll. Little Big League contain ex and present members of Strand of Oak, Post Post and Titus Andronicus. And Mary Lattimore gives you the chance to see punk and classical harp all in one set.
