Weekend Warrior, January 8 - 10

Brought to you by End Result Productions & WKDU in conjunction with R5 Productions and the First Unitarian Church is Blistering Ephemera II. The all-day music showcase this Saturday features national touring acts like Xiu Xiu (who will be playing Philly for the first time in four years), Providence, RI political sax punks Downtown Boys, and PC Worship. You’ll also find a slew of local acts earlier in the day. Slow Animal is certainly playing way earlier than I’d like. I also saw what I’m hoping to be a bad joke – “Maybe our last show ever???????” – on their FB page and their lack of shows lately makes me wonder so you’ve been warned. Other Philly folks include lo-fi, freak darling Kate Ferencz, art-pop trio Banned Books, hardcore punks Disinterest, and many more. Get it while the gettin’s good! First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 4pm, $12 - $20, All Ages - Alexis V.

Weekend Warrior, January 16 - 18

In honor of his 5th anniversary of living in Philly, the promoter behind End Result Productions and Philly DIY Shows, Nick Duval, has organized a two-day festival, Blistering Ephemera, that features his favorite experimental rock and punk acts converging upon PhilaMOCA for one jam-packed weekend. It will feature buzz-worthy out of town acts like Two Inch Astronaut, Big Ups, Palberta, and Nashoba, as well as plenty of hometown heroes. On Saturday Pinkwash will electrify with their soul-pounding power punk, and Disinterest will crush with their raw and visceral hardcore. Sunday will be headlined by Andy Molholt and the rest of Laser Background, who are preparing a big tour in support of their upcoming EP Kelly Wisdom. Meanwhile, The Spirit of the Beehive will showcase exactly why they’re rapidly becoming one of bands to watch in 2015. And Space Drugs will be quick to impress with their noisy garage rock. With 20 eclectic acts total on the lineup, this is definitely a festival to catch on both days. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 3pm, $10-$12 each day, All Ages - Bill McThrill
