Left & Right

Weekend Warrior, July 6 - 8

Venturing through the glorious and gloomy days with a rough, gritty exterior and a melodic core, Left & Right appears to have reached its final destination. This evening at Johnny Brenda’s will be the quartet’s final show. The Charlottesville transplants exhibit the ability to magnetically pull you into personal narratives that mimic or highlight one’s own circumstances, and after sitting calmly on the couch and collecting your thoughts, it pushes past the familiar walls. That release of emotion opens up the cathartic floodgates. Delaware trio Grace Vonderkuhn will also be unleashing its brooding psych-punk musical mesh – part frenetic fuzz and a smoky slow-oozing stew. Articulating genuine self-awareness in momentous, endearing waves, No Thank You harnesses emotive energy, while the cozy, haze-inspiring tunes of Queen Jesus are set to kickstart this weekend.

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

New Left & Right EP Available for Streaming & Download

Virginia transplants Left & Right have released a new EP Pivot Foot. The quartet invites you into its up-close and personal lyricism before dashing forward with musicality that both cleanly unites and exhibits an inebriated rawness, which tempers that marked refinement. The band is currently picking up its pivot foot, traveling on a short run of tour dates, and you can also find the EP on cassette via Oxtail Recordings.
