Left & Right LP Release Show at Everybody Hits Sept. 16

Indie-rock quartet Left & Right has been sharing tastes of its new album, The Yips (WarHen Records), for months now. And the band’s follow-up to 2014's Five Year Plan has the group teaming up once again with producer Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Parquet Courts) to create a medley of lush soundscapes that also succeed in challenging the members as songwriters and performers. It's an album that's worthy of celebration, which is what they'll be doing this evening at Everybody Hits for the hometown stop of their current tour. However, it will also be a bit of a bittersweet one, since it will mark their last Philly show with drummer Zak Krone. Let’s make it a memorable night, where they’ll be joined by the vibrant alt-country melodies of Friendship, the multi-layered fuzz of Horsecops, and Boston's Sneeze! Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, All Ages (Drawing by Jess Cavaluzzi) - Bill McThrill

Straw Hats & Spill Opening for Kississippi at PhilaMOCA Feb. 18

Garage-punk trio Straw Hats, featuring members of The Districts, and indie-rock outfit Spill, which houses former members of Placeholders and We Were Skeletons, set out on the road together earlier this month for what was dubbed their "Valentine's Tour." After tearing up DIY spots in the South and Midwest, the gang will be coming home tonight to a talent-filled, polarizing bill at PhilaMOCA. Headlining this evening will be Kississippi, who has enchanted the blogosphere with their latest EP We Have No Future, We're All Doomed (Softspeak Records). You'll also find Maine transplants Friendship warming things up with their simmering folk tunes. Come enjoy the peaks and valleys that will be traveled throughout the evening!

Hello Shark Engages at All Night Diner Dec. 14

Hello Shark's Linc Halloran has a lot of polarizing opinions about the world around him. His uninhibited thoughts flow out into melodic verses and choruses with a raw, earnest vocal deliver that draws to mind works of indie-rock heroes Pavement. Whether solo or backed by a group of his musician pals, a performance by Halloran is always an engaging experience, and he'll be kicking things off this evening at West Philly's All Nite Diner. Hello Shark will also be joined by fellow New England transplants Friendship, who have been touring in support of their latest LP You're Going to Have To Trust Me. They'll be hosting Maryland mellow-pop trio Viking Moses and New Hampshire's Tiger Saw. All Night Diner, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman


New Music Video: "You Seemed So Much in Luv" - Friendship

Maine tranplants Friendship have a new music video for their track "You Seemed So Much in Luv," found on their latest album You're Going to Have to Trust Me (Burst & Bloom Records). The video was directed and choreographed by Antonia Z. Brown with the solo dance performance by Hillary Pearson. You can catch Friendship performing in Philly on Monday, December 14 at All Nite Diner in West Philly.


New Friendship LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Currently on tour with Abi Reimold, alt-country transplants Friendship’s new album You’re Going To Have To Trust Me was recently released via Burst & Bloom Records. Howling with an unfiltered authenticity and a rustling echoey twang, while venturing onto different terrain, the band captures a folk-anchored familiarity, while pushing through the gates of the past. You can stream and purchase the LP below. (Photo by Abi Reimold)
