Travel Near & Far w/Pet at Boot & Saddle Nov. 28

Thanksgiving seems to a have a residual fatigue, which temporarily knocks me out. But it’s Saturday, and the rust is coming off. The assemblage, formerly known as Snoozer, has reawakened as Pet. The trio throttles between a booming, full-on rush forward, with an internal edge. The outward instrumental push provides the primary jolt, but it’s reinforced by a pensive lyrical pull. That near-and-far sound holds you in limbo. Tonight at Boot & Saddle, they bridge the gap between the punk meets shoegazing, spacey synths of Janelle and the trio of Remote Player’s Club, featuring a pair of former State Radio members, Mike Najarian and Chuck Fay. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita 


Final Snoozer EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Before formally adopting the new name Pet, the band, formerly known as Snoozer, released a swan song EP. Don’t sleep on Life Sucks, available digitally below and on cassette courtesy of Third Floor Tapes. The intriguing interplay of jolting instrumentation and unnerving somber vocals creates an interesting multifaceted outer strength versus an internally sensitive dynamic. Catch Pet on Friday, November 6 at Nico Nico Mansion.


Snoozer Return w/New Material at Bourbon & Branch March 9

Rock trio Snoozer has been on a break from playing out while Mike O'Keefe, Paul Hewes, and Tom Moore have been working on some new tunes. You can take a listen to the band's latest six-song EP Cottage Cheese, which will be available on cassette via Ranch Records. The album was recorded at West Philly's Sex Dungeon. The group is also set to perform the songs live this evening at Bourbon & Branch. It will be Snoozer's first show in a bit, and they'll be joined by Brooklyn's Leapling and Baked. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Alexis V.
