A Win-Win Situation at The Troc June 18

A Win-Win Situation at The Troc June 18

Philly/Brooklyn three-piece the Notekillers craft cinematic jams, making the most of their instrumentals. Originally fixtures of the ‘70s punk scene, their 7” The Zipper created a legacy of sorts, influencing fans and acts like Sonic Youth. After taking a lengthy break from what began in ’76, the Notekillers resurfaced, rocking harder than before. The surfy vibes of “Papers” rush in with surging riffs and cymbals while the jangle beats of “Eyelash” revive the golden days of rock ‘n roll with dizzying brilliance. Darker but with equal shredibility, West Philly’s Mose Giganticus is a force to be reckoned with. Mose Giganticus is the result of Matt Garfield’s creative genius. A little angry with synthy interludes - tracks like “Legacy” and the nearly robotic “My Machine” will get your fists in the air with ease. He’ll be releasing his debut album on Relapse Records, Gift Horse, towards the end of this July. Coupled with the raucous folk-blues tunes of TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb, tonight’s lineup is eclectically win-win. Miss out, and you’ll regret it. The Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 10pm, $10, 21+ - Dianca Potts
