Mike Bell & the Movies

Mike Bell & the Movies Opening for Nayuta at Eris Temple Arts Nov. 14

Japan's premier krautrock band Nayuta perform a very rare West Philly house show concert tonight when they play at Eris Temple Arts. And they'll be backed by an eclectic lineup of local artists. In a short amount of time after the release of their debut album, Nothing Works, Mike Bell & the Movies have become a buzz-worthy power pop band. And when a group features members of acts like Dangerous Ponies, Bandname, and Algernon Cadwallader with the lead singer ballsy enough to get punched and slapped in the face for the sake of shooting an original music video, it’s well-deserved. And their live performances feature that same kind of unbridled energy. Previous winners of our Featured Artist(s) Poll, Forever Lesbians will also show you why they're ready to gain a following when they play songs from their latest album Love, Respect & Wisdom. Rounding out the lineup will be Lancaster punks 1994! and Blue Smiley. Eris Temple Arts, 602 2. 52 St., 8pm, $5-$7 Donation, All Ages - Bill McThrill

New Music Video: "Everyone" (Sigel City Feat. The Daddyo's Remix) - Mike Bell & The Movies

Mike Bell & The Movies recently released a full-length maxi-single CD for the track "Everyone," which originally appeared on their record Nothing Works. The new album comes with four remixes by various artists and a live recording of the single as well as live versions of previously recorded and unrecorded songs that were taken from their performance on June 14, 2014 at Self Aware Fest. A standout on their latest LP features a sugary sweet, synth-heavy collaboration between Tulsa, Oklahoma's Sastronaut and The Daddyo's that also came with a music video, which you can view below. The Everyone (Maxi-Single) release is available via Major Bear Records, and can be purchased and streamed HERE. Enjoy!


Weekend Warrior, September 19 - 21

Tonight, the ruthless instrumental surges of Mumblr storms the Golden Tea House. With the release of the group's ambitious seventeen-song full-length album Full of Snakes (Fleeting Youth) earlier this week, the quartet casts a somewhat ominous yet tongue-in-cheek outlook on life. Developing an agitated, grunge tone through their primal attacking technique, synching jagged slivers of guitar, with anticipatory, pulse-accelerating backend and vocals that cap the message, Mumblr will be celebrating the release of the band's LP this evening alongside Mike Bell & The Movies, who just release their "Everyone" CD single via , Philly punks Community Service, and Long Island's Soda Bomb. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $5 Donation, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Philly Summer Fest at PhilaMOCA Aug. 9

PhilaMOCA hosts another summer Saturday barbecue fest today with Dogs on Acid (ex-Algernon Cadwallader) and friends. This one will also be the album release party for fast-paced, sludge punks Cassilis. It will be a good chance to catch garage-pop trio Amanda X (if somehow you missed all the group’s bazillion local performances this summer), before they embark on a U.S. tour, and find out why so many people have been raving about their debut album Amnesia. Hardcore noise duo Bubonic Bear will bring an ample serving of guitar-laden chaos, and Mike Bell & the Movies will deliver an upbeat dose of melodic indie pop. The show will also feature The Weaks, Sleep Study, and more. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 3:30pm, $10, All Ages - Bill McThrill

New Music Video: "Everyone" - Mike Bell & the Movies

Power-pop outfit Mike Bell & the Movies premiered a new music video yesterday for the track "Everyone," off Nothing Works (Major Bear Records), over at The A.V. Club. In it, you'll find frontman Mike Bell strapped to a chair and on the wrong end of a barrage of punches and slaps, which is pretty awesome and ballsy. Talk about making sacrifices for your art. "There will be blood!" Enjoy!
