The Suzan play Downtown Records party at The Studio on 03.04 with A-Track and Lissy Trullie

Downtown Records was founded by ex major label exec and record producer Josh Deutsch. Clearly someone who knows the ins and outs of the music business (having done A&R for big artists like Courtney Love for example), Deutsch decided to branch out on his own and started Downtown in 2006. The label is celebrating their 5 year anniversary with a live show at The Studio at Webster on Friday March 4th with some of its most prominent artists, including Art Brut, Lissy Trullie and high profile guest DJ A-Track. The Suzan - a emerging NYC band we weren't aware of - will be amongst the openers. This all female seems entirely composed of Japanese ladies and play some kind of percussive, almost tribal pop led by some powerful and theatrical vocals. Their show promises to be loud and fun.


I Hate You Just Kidding- new EP 3/1 + Show @ La Cave 3/3

Listening to I Hate You Just Kidding is like drifting away into a mid-summertime daydream. Their new EP "I'm A Submarine" comes out tomorrow...a perfect way to ease into springtime. The harmonizing vocals of Jessi and Jeremy are sweet and soothing,  and the sounds of the tambourine, harmonica, banjo, and acoustic send you into a sort of folk fairytale. "Home" paints a picture of a vintage house with yellow walls and faded polaroids, with the lyrics "Your hands are more like home than some house could ever be". "Some Things Never Change" has a Brian Jonestown Massacre type feel. IHYJK's full album is due out later this year. Check them out this Thursday at La Cave in Costa Mesa!

The Future of the OX!?!

We first heard about cops busting up 2 Piece Fest at the OX on Saturday night from a random message retweeted by Folkadelphia’s Fred Knittel from Omar's Nick Fanelli’s account stating, “Ten cops came to the Ox, ended two piece fest, and wrote down everyone's drivers license numbers.” Well, one of our writers, Adam G., later learned from the Slutever ladies who performed at the fest earlier in the day that it was true.
Below are statements posted by the OX on their Facebook page early this morning:
“Dearest OX fans, please stay tuned for updates regarding the relocation of upcoming shows. We're not prepared to make any official announcements regarding the future of the OX (mostly because we still don't know ourselves) but we thank you all for your support!”
“And for the record, the organizers, bands, show-goers, EVERYONE who was there at Two Piece Fest was AWESOME. Much love to you all. NO REGRETS WHATSOEVER.”
Looks like another nasty hit for Philly’s DIY scene. We remain hopeful for the nice folks at the OX who have generously let us all into their home. But it’s definitely on the authorities’ radar now.
We feel ya: FUCKIN’ SUCKS!!!

Road to Bonnaroo Part 1 @ Mercy Lounge Tonight

The time has arrived. Round One of Road to Bonnaroo kicks off tonight at Mercy Lounge with a crap ton of talent lined up to prove their Bonna-worthiness. This means Evan P. Donohue’s nerdy-chic retro rock, Courtney Jaye’s bubbly, sometimes country-tinged tunes, the glitchy hip hop of Chancellor Warhol, glam rock from Majestico, surfy indie rockers Heartbeater, funk-punk rockers Kink Ador, The Kicks’ southern pop rock and Tyler Bryant’s guitar chops. This is the first part of an extra-special trio of 8 offs, so come out and support.
