Weekend Warrior, September 11 - 13

The kick-ass jams will be aplenty this Saturday night at Underground Arts. Headlining the stacked lineup will be one of my favorite bands of late prolific San Francisco garage rockers Thee Oh Sees. They don’t play Philly often enough so if you’ve never experienced them live in concert, you really need to make it happen. Thee Oh Sees have recruited rifftastic, psych-garage locals Purling Hiss to help blow out some eardrums. Iggy Pop-approved garage trio Residuels will return to the UA stage once again, after lending the group’s talents a couple of weeks ago for The Dude Hates Cancer after party benefit concert. Promising jazz-tinged, psych-rock newcomers Under the Clothesline will also be along for the wild ride. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 9pm, $16, 21+ - Q.D. Tran

Residuels & Thrills Opening for Foe Destroyer at Boot & Saddle July 30

When Iggy Pop has some kind words to say about what you've done with one of his songs, then you know that you are moving in the right direction. Residuels, led by Justin Pittney (formerly of Moon Women), continue to bash out exhilarating garage rock. The band has an upcoming album in the works that contains new material and re-recorded songs that Pittney had laid down in the studio in the early stages of the project, before the exodus of drummer Pat Troxell (Creepoid) and its reformation into a trio, with the addition of Michael Cammarata (Suburban Living, ex-Drink Up Buttercup, ex-Night Panther) and Kyle Garvey (The Interest Group). You'll get to hear this bigger sound this evening on the wonderfully powerful system of South Philly's Boot & Saddle, where Residuels will be opening for Denton's Foe Destroyer, which is made up of Daniel Garcia, Cade Sadler, and Chris McQueen (of Snarky Puppy). They'll also be sharing the bill with Thrills, the electro-rock project from Michael Mullin (of Vacationer and Ratkicker), who will be making its live performance debut. Mullin will be joined on stage by Vacationer bandmates Ken Vasoli and Greg Altman. Boot & Saddle, 11131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Q.D. Tran


Residuels Opening for The Sonics at the TLA April 12

As we anxiously anticipate the release of their debut LP (which is currently in the works), Residuels open for The Sonics at the TLA this evening. The expanding duo unleashes a tenacious brand of rock 'n' roll. Justin Pittney’s attitude-asserting vocals fan the fire of classic grease-under-the-nails garage rock with steady popping off percussion and formidable guitar flare ups that set the music ablaze. With the band’s fresh “Valley of Fire”/“I Got A Right”(Stooges Cover) cassingle due out on April 20 (available at the venue this evening) garnering Iggy Pop’s stamp of approval, the band appears on its way. Tonight, they lay the groundwork for garage-rock legends The Sonics, whom recently released a new LP This Is The Sonics. Theatre of Living Arts, 334 South St., 8pm, $25, All Ages - Michael Colavita


New Track: "Valley Of Fire" - Residuels

Check out “Valley Of Fire” - the brimming, moody rocker with a heavy dose of distortion from Residuels, which debuted on the SXSW schedule website. It’s the type of tune that amps you up to make a move. The quartet is among a large group of locals headed down to Austin later this month. Residuels will serve as the opener for The Sonics on Sunday, April 12 at the TLA.
