Satellite Hearts

Satellite Hearts Here to Stay at Dobbs Sept. 2

Satellite Hearts is a group constructed on the classic blueprint of a power trio. J. M. Pellechia’s distinct, raw lead vocals and in your face guitar playing fit rather naturally with the heavy thud of Lucas Rinz’s bass and the smashing percussion styling of Keaton Thandi. This band doesn’t knock on the front door. It kicks it in and dares you to question their authority. With an unabashed psych rock mentality that is balanced by catchy lyrics and a knack for finding the workingman’s groove, Satellite Hearts will force their way in, but once you’ve heard what they have to offer, you’ll invite them to stay. The Legendary Dobbs, 304 South Street, 9pm, Free, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Satellite Hearts Baring Their Soul at The Troc May 18

Trying to pinpoint Satellite Hearts' sound is like running a marathon without any training - it's simply foolish. You can say the Philly three-piece exudes the heart and soul of classic rock, but that doesn't give props to the strands of clap-along sing-song acousto-punk strewn throughout. You can say that they're pure rock 'n' roll, but that doesn't do justice to the rough-hewn climb of '80s indie underground raggedly sewn into their sonic fabric. You can make up another rock-based genre to label Satellite Hearts, but maybe you'd do better describing them after you check them out tonight in the Balcony Bar at the Trocadero. Local raspy, wise-beyond-her-years folk fantasinator Spirit & Dust (a.k.a. Kristen Sylvester) will provide support tonight alongside spunky indie-rock outfits A Little Affair and Adams Wilson, both hauling their way in from dirty Jerz. Looks like your Hump Day just got booked. Balcony Bar at the Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 9pm, $8, 21+ - Annamarya Scaccia
