After releasing a new remix album of tracks from their LP Awkward Pop Songs, JANK premiered their latest album, Versace Summer, over at Noisey. You might be familiar with two of its tracks, "Alligator" and "This Is A Song About My Bike Ralph And It's Called 'Ralph'," which they put out last month, donating all the poceeds to the PULSE Tragedy Community Fund on GoFundMe. The new record officially comes out July 27, and you can catch JANK this evening at PhilaMOCA opening for Dikembe, Slingshot Dakota, and Timeshares. (Cover Art by Olivia Knowles)

Weekend Warrior, May 13 - 15

This weekend is the second annual Love on the Streets Festival. Held at Paines Park, it is an all day festival that supports the Franklin Pains Skatepark Fund (FPSF) in its attempt to spread the love of skateboarding and support urban culture in and around the city. While last year the festival filled the park with circus performers, artisan coffee, and a mess of food trucks, this year is really upping the ante in terms of entertainment. Wahoo Tacos, along with The Electric Factory, will be sponsoring a skating competition, where the lucky winner will take home $2,000. New this year are a couple key cogs that were missing last year. First and foremost, Beer. There was not a beer as far as the eye could see last year. Unfortunately, it will be coming from a Budweiser Beer Garden so you might just want to bring your own. Live art has been added to the mix, with renowned graffiti artists Distoart and Getup to make the festival a multi-sensory experience. Another enticing addition this year is a Flea Market with over 40 vendors selling a vast array of lightly used treasures that are just waiting for a good home.

The music is also a strong suit of the festival once again, bringing both variety and congruity to make for an eclectic but fitting lineup of artists. There is a bit of a punk tinge to this years lineup, with artists like Mumblr, JANK (who have a great new album Awkward Pop Song coming out May 20 on Creep Records), Lithuania (DRGN KING's Dom Angelella and Dr. Dog's Eric Slick), and Steady Hands (a.k.a. Sean Huber from Modern Baseball). Other artists include The Obsessives, Vicky Speedboat, Plainview, Endless Taile, and RFA. For the skate competition and throughout the day, there will be tunes complimentary of Fishtown Beats, Frank Sriracha, and Aurize. All in all, a pretty dope collection of happenings that are sure to be a good time for a good cause. Paine's Park, N. 24th St., 12pm-10pm, Free, All Ages - Adam G.

New Music Video: "Caitlyn" - JANK

The video for “Caitlyn,” directed by Ian Neisser, finds the trio of JANK waking, baking, and then horsing around with their dog costume-adorned friend Shane Davidson. While the first half the footage is playful, the second finds the band performing the melodically-frenzied track in a basement. Awkward Pop Songs, which was released on tape via Honest Face Records/Funeral Sounds) is set for a vinyl release on May 20 via Creep Records. Also, keep your eyes/ears peeled for a new EP.
