Weekend Warrior, May 7 - 9

Weekend Warrior, May 7 - 9

Finals are done for most of you collegiate types and it’s just in time for the summer weather. There are way too many good shows for this weekend so there is no reason why you shouldn’t be extending Cinco De Mayo! Well, tonight at JB’s was originally planned to be Grandchildren’s CD release party for Cold Warrior on Green Owl Records, but the release date has been pushed back for remastering and an additional track. It’s looking like an August or end of July drop date now. Lucky, we have TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb ready to share their latest work (we think?). We received an advance copy of a few tracks, but no word on even a title. However, we did learn that they are a “cracksmoke band of scientists who found God in the middle of the night going South in the passing lane on Rt. 81.” They’ll also be joined by Ernest Jenning’s Skeletonbreath (featuring members of O’Death, Grandchildren and The Woes) and W. Philly buddies/lover of the ladies The Chimeras. We really can’t imagine this not being a good time. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+
