Psychic Teens

Little Big League, Literature, Psychic Teens & More at Duff Gardens Feb. 22

This evening’s stacked lineup at Golden Tea House with Little Big League, Kal Marks, Literature, and Psychic Teens has been moved to Duff Gardens. In August, Little Big League released their debut LP, These Are Good People (Tiney Engines). Their sound is a departure from most of the members’ previous endeavors; it’s a callback to 90’s guitar rock filled with angsty riffs and the haunting voice of Zauner breathing over heavy drums and ambient chords. Boston’s Kal Marks bring a heavier, burned-out rock to the stage. Powerful lyrics are twisted and spat out by lead singer Carl Shane, whose unusual voice is accented by overpowering instrumentals. Lightening up the mood will be Austin transplants, Literature. They play a jangly type of rock ‘n’ roll, burgeoning on power pop. While their songs have a lot more bounce, their lyrics occasionally juxtapose their music, mixing in heavy topics with danceable beats.  Rounding out the bill and bringing the darkness will be Psychic Teens. Playing unsettling, crashing noise over deep, goose bump-inducing vocals, the band takes goth and puts it through the post-punk grinder. The night seems like a wonderful rock ‘n’ roll potpourri. Duff Gardens, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $5 - $7, All Ages - Shaylin O’Connell

Psychic Teens Making Your Ears Ring in the New Year at The Boot & Saddle Jan. 3

After a breakout year on the national scene in 2013 with their full-length album COME (SRA Records), Psychic Teens are ready to make your ears ring in the New Year with a touch of tinnitus when they take advantage The Boot & Saddle’s sweet sound system tonight with their bloodcurdling guitar riffs, thunderous drums and ominous, horror-punk vocals. The gothic post-punk trio will also have new pressings of their latest LP on opaque blue vinyl available. It will be an evening of local basement dwellers surfacing with noisy rock four-piece Ladder Devils and post-hardcore outfit Faking adding to the degeneration of your hearing. The Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $8, 21+ - Alexis V.


New Music Video: "Less" - Psychic Teens

Psychic Teens look like they needed to release some serious aggression after a funeral in their new music video for the track "Less" that premiered yesterday over at Pop Matters. It was shot by Anthony Zagarella and Nick Hatsis, who also edited the footage. The group just repressed their latest LP COME, which is available on opaque blue vinyl via SRA Records. They'll be performing next in Philly on Friday, January 3 at The Boot & Saddle with Ladder Devils and Faking.


Tuesday Tune-Out w/Psychic Teens at PhilaMOCA Oct. 29

Drexel University’s WKDU will be wrapping up their series of shows this month for PhilaMOCA’s Tuesday Tune-Out. Closing things out this evening is gothic post-punk trio Psychic Teens, who should be the perfect act to get you in the mood for all the upcoming Halloween festivities. With bludgeoning tunes from their latest LP COME (SRA Records), the band just might scare out whatever remaining spirits may still be residing in the former mausoleum. Also, don’t forget to stick around after their performance for some campy B-movie horror flick goodness. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $5, All Ages - Alexis V.


Psychic Teens Go Underground at Yarga’s Basement Oct. 17

Locals Psychic Teens are the kind of band that made stereotypical 1950’s housewives faint. Fresh off their sophomore release COME (SRA Records), the group’s music is an application of the most self-aware sort of psychedelic post-punk drenched in the reckless abandon of 80’s metal - specifically, imagine Bauhaus and Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet in a blender. Psychic Teens are bringing their uniquely grungy, wry and downright furious brand of prog-punk to Yarga’s Basement, nestled in our favorite Penn fraternity, in what is sure to be an all-out blitzkrieg on your ability to hear the next day. They’ll be joined by Michigan's Brief Candles, the recently re-formed Oh, Adeona, and You’re Fired, a brand new endeavor born from Philly noise-rock specialists Heavy Medical. BTW: If this lineup doesn’t get you there promptly on time, there has also been a promise of something special for the first 30 people in the door. Yarga's Basement, (Please contact yargaproductions@gmail.com for more info.), 9pm, All Ages - Daniel Ludwig
