Needle Points

New Track: "Needlove" - Needle Points

Boogie-woogie psych outfit Needle Points just threw in its hat for this year's summertime jam. The group's latest single/song title, "Needlove," is rather apropos, considering that's what the band named their fledgling record label earlier this year. Do you need love this Friday morning? We sure do. Come give Mama some sugar. (Photo by Ryan Collerd)


Philly Beer Week Scavenger Run & Free Music Fest at Dock Street Brewery June 12

Some of you have probably been gettin’ your drink on for Philly Beer Week. And as the curtain begins to pull shut for the ten-day celebration, I look forward to ending things at Dock Street Brewery’s PBW Scavenger Run & Free Music Fest, as I always do every year. Now, I’m not going to lie. I neither have the physical capability or desire to do any running around today, but you can be sure as hell to count me in for some great brews, scrumptious pizzas, and sweet local acts. As usual, it’s an eclectic lineup that feeds off the diversity of the West Philly neighborhood. Ready to throwdown this year for your listening pleasure will be neo-psych sextet Needle Points (who are currently recording its next album with Dr. Dog’s Scott McMicken), experimental punks Northern Liberties, the funky sounds of Black Landlord, and L’ananas (featuring members of Grandchildren). It’s really too nice of a day to just stay at home and nurse hangover. A bit of the hair of the dog, a few slices, and an afternoon of good tunes will make the pain all go away. Dock Street Brewery, 50th St. & Baltimore Ave., 2:30pm - 8pm, Free, All Ages - Alexis V. 

New Video: "Howl" (Live) - Needle Points

Marinate in the deep psych-surf groove of previously unreleased “Howl” from Needle Points' performance on April 29, 2016 at Bourbon & Branch. The band’s debut full-length is slated for a summer release. This raunchy space-boogie ditty suggests that the Scott McMicken-produced record should be one that’s on your radar.

Night Market w/Needle Points, Thin Lips, The Bul Bey & More in the Eraserhood June 18

The Foodtrust's Night Market comes to the Eraserhood this evening, and our friends at PhilaMOCA will be helping to provide the entertainment while you stuff your faces and wait in ridiculous lines. The Moz's Director, Eric Bresler, has put together a diverse lineup that consists of the psych-garage boogie of Needles Points, the riff-heavy pop-punk of Thin Lips, hustlin' Philly emcee The Bul Bey, Puerto Rican Bomba/Plena outfit Los Bomberos De la Calle, and synth-driven alt rockers Wild By Law. You'll also find Mitch Esparza (The Love Club) roaming the streets as a one-man mariachi band, 12-year-old Mayor of the Eraserhood, Lil Sean, providing a few laughs, and other short performances by the PhilaMOCA family of freaks. Protip: Come to the Night Market before it officially starts to scope it out and get your food. Even Better Protip: If you can only get there in the middle of the event, head on over to Jose's (469 N. 10th St.), and grab yourself a delicious burrito because those long lines aren't worth it. Eraserhood, 12th & 13th Sts. between Spring Garden & Callowhill Sts., 6pm-10pm, Free, All Ages - Q.D. Tran

Free Download: "Babes" - Needle Points

We've been seriously soaking in the summertime vibes lately, and the good times for us always come with a soundtrack. Needle Points capture it perfectly with their latest single "Babes," as we sit back with a haze of the sticky icky in our eyes and a cold frosty beverage in hand. Come join the fun tomorrow night when they take the stage with Brooklyn's Spires at Ortlieb's!
