Queen of Jeans





Weekend Warrior, May 6 - 8

Still managed to miss seeing Queen of Jeans despite The Deli’s diligent coverage of the talented crew? Lucky for you that the month of May not only brings flowers, but also a vibrant bouquet of 60s-style flower-pop every Friday at Bourbon & Branch compliments of our beloved blossoming local artists Queen of Jeans. The band will have a month-long residency at B&B with performances every Friday featuring a different lineup of local acts. This week, we’ll be presenting the pairing their dreamy-textured 60’s girl-group pop with the 80’s new-wave textures of Suburban Living, whose musical interest falls more in line with Disintegration-era Cure but measures up to Queen of Jeans’ love of reverb-soaked pop sensibility. Joining in on the dreamy, poppy forays of the evening will be The Soft Spots, whose attempts to synthesize the best of the worlds results in tunes that are immediately appealing on the surface but derivationally complex. You can also catch Julia Rainer, a Philly singer-songwriter with a gentle, emotive voice and a powerful sincerity. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

New Music Video: "Walk Like An Egyptian" (The Bangles Cover) - Queen of Jeans

So often, your mom is your first and biggest fan, and while it might be natural, it’s often underappreciated. In Queen of Jeans's new video for their take on The Bangles classic "Walk Like An Egyptian," the group flips the script as their moms take center stage. Bob Sweeney captures the playful, heart-warming footage, showcasing how the moms can rock, while also returning the love. Queen of Jeans (and probably their biggest fans) will be at Ortlieb’s this Saturday, March 26, with The Morelings and The Stargazer Lilies. (Photo by Kelly Kurteson)





Church Girls Fill the Musical Void at JB's Feb. 19

Mariel Beaumont started Church Girls as a side project to “fill the musical void in her life.” The once rebellious teen spent her formative years attending basement shows, drinking forties, and enjoying the best times of her life. So it’s not surprising that the ache and love for music have seeped into her bones, like many of us, who hear its calling to get involved. Church Girls received critical acclaim from the gate for its debut single “Young Planes,” and recently released its latest album Thousand Lives, which will be on display tonight. Now, solidified as four-piece, the band is set to headline Johnny Brenda’s. Also along for support are Queen of Jeans, who have been pleasing ears and making a name for themselves with vibrant, swoon-worthy pop, and Madalean Gauze, who is another feminine force and rising star in the Philly music community. The ladies will be ruling the stage this evening. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill





New Track: "Dance (Get Off Your Ass) (Work Drugs Remix)" - Queen of Jeans

With Queen of Jeans's Matheson Glass having spent a stint in the band Work Drugs, a remix was bound to be spawned from their creative relationship. Below is Work Drugs's reworking of the ladies' debut single, "Dance (Get Off Your Ass)," which does a fine job at getting you to follow directions. You can find Queen of Jeans this evening at Johnny Brenda's opening for Church Girls.
