Thin Lips





Weekend Warrior, May 20 - 22

Tonight at Everybody Hits is the long-awaited release show for Thin Lips’ debut LP Riff Hard, coming out via local tastemakers Lame-O Records. Thin Lips are a venerable supergroup of longstanding Philly stalwarts who have hit a sweet spot of triumphant pop rock and confessional, introspective lyrics without sentimentality. Chrissy Tashjian, formerly of Dangerous Ponies and The Bee Team, captains this ship with her commanding, casual, and versatile vocals. The hard riffs are largely courtesy of longtime bandmate Kyle Pulley (ex-Dangerous Ponies) and Chris Diehm, a punk-rock lifer who cut his teeth in Lancaster’s 1994! before coming to Philly and lending his talents to Thin Lips, as well as Year Of Glad. The band is filled out by Mikey Tashjian (The Superweaks, ex-Dangerous Ponies), who shows his ability to shift rhythms and help craft intriguing songs, while maintaining a not-too-serious rock 'n' roll sheen. Celebrating with the Lips will be Casey Magic, Lame-O labelmates Lowercase Roses, folky psych rockers Pine Barons, and Pure Pop, a “new pop-punk trio comprised of Lame-O, Superweaks, and Modern Baseball angel babies.” Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $5-$10, All Ages - Adam G.

New Thin Lips LP Available for Streaming

The highly energetic, rumbling, emotive anthems of quartet Thin Lips will release its debut album Riff Hard via Lame-O Records on May 20, and is available for streaming now over at SPIN. Packing a riff-fueled punch and combating that with a sensitive narrative skin, the band converts internal pensiveness into outward power. Catch their record release show this Friday at Everybody Hits with Casey Magic, Pine Barons, Lowercase Roses and Pure Pop!





New Track: "My Mouth Is Skinned Like An Apple" - Thin Lips

The lady and gents of Thin Lips just shared their second offering from the band's forthcoming LP Riff Hard. "My Mouth Is Skinned Like An Apple" is filled with natural pop vocal melodies, which have always seemed to come effortlessly to Chrissy Tashjian (Dangerous Ponies, The Bee Team); however, the track eventually gets to the business of staying true to the group's album title. Riff Hard comes out May 20 via Lame-O Records, and Thin Lips will be celebrating its arrival that evening at Everybody Hits.





Weekend Warrior, March 11 - March 13

Thin Lips are heading off on tour in support of their 7-inch EP release, Divorce Year (Seagreen Records), and will be hosting a hometown send-off show this Saturday night at Everybody Hits. The album showcases the band’s spry, hooky tunes that seem to indulge in equal parts Aughts pop-punk anthems and heavy Jawbreaker-style 90’s riff punk, which doesn’t make the naming of their forthcoming LP, Riff Hard (due out May 20 via Lame-O Records), that surprising. (You can check out the new music video for their latest single "Never Again" below.) Fellow slaves to the riff The Max Levine Ensemble will also be performing on the bill tomorrow, flaunting their lively, inexhaustible, sometimes political pop punk that tips the cap to turn of the millennium bands like Rise Against. Worriers will be on hand with a more subdued, pensive approach to the genre. And don’t miss Bellows, who will start the night on an intimate tone with delicately composed bedroom jams. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $8-$10, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

The Superweaks, Thin Lips, & Dogs On Acid Complete Lame-O Records "Rock Residency" at Boot & Saddle Jan. 28

Lame- O Records residency at Boot & Saddle goes out with a bang this evening with a formidable lineup. The Superweaks concoct their own brand of power-pop, one, which unites thick twin-lined guitar riffs forging a path for the memorably melodic universally emotive lyrics.  Torn from a personal place, the band showcases internal grit, fleshed out in consistent streamlined swells. The tenacious tug and pull pop punk of Thin Lips whose new record was recently completed will join them. Recently returned from a run of tour dates Dogs On Acid complete this strong billing. Boot & Saddle 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $8, 21+ -Michael Colavita
