Wild Jim Banfill & His Rolling Rocks

Have a Really Good Time w/Sad Sacks Wild Jim Banfill & His Rolling Rocks at Bourbon & Branch April 4

Wild Jim Banfill & His Rolling Rocks simply sound like they are having a really good time being sad sacks. Whether its the spirit of Ween's classic 12 Golden Country Greats found in their latest single "If This Ol' Dick Stretched To Nashville" or the pining away for Rashida Jones (which I totally get) in "Rashida Jones-Banfill," the new project from The Tough Shits' Mark Banfill tickles the funny bone through well-crafted garage-pop/counrty-soul ditties. Grabbin' a few beers, and kickin' it with Banfill and the gang is definitely your best local music alternative to watching the NCAA Championship tonight. (Yasss - it's almost over!) They'll also be joined by Philly's own Miami Sludge and Maria & The Moans, as well as San Francisco producer Al Lover. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Alexis V.

The Whips Tape Release Show at Boot & Saddle Feb. 21

Suicide Bong Tapes celebrates the release of The Whips's Roots Rock Element tonight at Boot & Saddle. The Whips exude a loose (not lax) surf-garage tone - one set off by authentic, harmony-peppered, slick, subtly swerving-guitar runs and the omnipresent current of backend rhythm rumbling. It could be considered a trip back to golden-era simplicity, echoing the early rebellious edge that morphed into punk.  With semi-refined, raw materials, the sound is finished to a pronounced sheen, without masking the natural grain. Louie Louie welds the soulful, vocal-anchored pop that has a penchant toward taking a psych-rockin' avenue. The infectious jangle of Wild Jim Banfill & His Rolling Rocks (Mark Banfill of The Tough Shits) sets sail on its inaugural journey, opening things up. Get there early as attendees will receive a free tape with admission, while supplies last. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
