Weekend Warrior - July 5 - 7

Sixteen Jackies’ Joey Demarco and Marley McNamara will be celebrating their birthdays this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Demarco and his bandmates are co-headlining the festivities with rising singer-songwriter Ali Awan. Moody, indie popsters The Homophones have come out of the woodwork for support, led by the smooth, baritone wit of Jason Ferraro. Langor, the solo project of Brian Langor (Needle Points, SW!MS, Sweatheart), will also be on hand to help kick-start the party. Beat the heat with plenty of cold beers, cool tunes, and a stacked lineup of local Philly talent! – Alexis V.

Tripp Lullaby's "Bundles of Joys" is an alternative-sounding spatial distortion, 30th-anniversary show 07.12

The men of Tripp Lullaby are in the middle of a time warp, an alternative-sounding spatial distortion: the band's 1990 recordings have been unearthed, remixed and remastered by Duane Trower for 2019 audiences looking to peek at New England's alt-rock beginnings. Tripp Lullaby was and still is based in Cape Cod, MA. The band's scene, nearly thirty years ago, included groups with names readers here may recognize such as The Freeze and Green Day. Bundles of Joys is the band's trip down memory lane, and it is loaded with classic punk beats, post-rock guitar flourishes, raw vocals, and now a luscious glaze of nostalgia. The band's compilation of tapes is indeed a time relic that gifts listeners an intimate experience with an alternative group that was then being defined by the seismic changes of the music world around them, by the winds of the sonic storm of grunge fast approaching. The band is celebrating their 30th anniversary with a record release show at Devil's Purse Brewing Company in South Dennis, MA on July 12th. We are streaming "Reality Sucks" for you below. - Rene Cobar

You can help Trickshooter Social Club celebrate the release of their album at Silvie's Lounge on July 12th with William Sides Atari Party, The Architects of Beauty and Liz and the Baguettes.





Music Blesses America at High Sierra Music Festival

Looking for something fun to do this 4th of July weekend? Do you love you some great mountains majesty, music of all shapes and genres, and food? Beverages? Trees? Camping? We recommend the High Sierra Music Festival for some good ol’ fashioned American purity. From Dispatch to Jim James, Del & Dawg to The New Mastersounds, the festival has something for most musical tastes. It’s like Burning Man but peaceful. Local favorites include Midnight North, Royal Jelly Live, Rainbow Girls, More Fatter and Eric Long. The festival runs from July 4th thru 7th in the lovely Quincy, Ca. We hope to see you there and tell us post-fest: which acts were your highlights? Land of the free, home of some killer music. May music bless America! - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

 

 





Futurist's "Olive Mountain" is both transcidental and tangible, release new LP "Omens" 9.27

Animistic metaphors play center stage on “Olive Mountain,” the new single by Brooklyn psych-rock veterans Futurist. Interspersed among syncopated sunny guitar lines and trance inducing background vox, frontman Curtis Peel waxes on about “fountainhead’s through the noose,” “diamond science,” and “separating blood from a stone.” Futurist’s lyrics wouldn’t be out of place in a tarot deck, but they’re not entirely detached from reality; at the core of “Olive Mountain” is a clear yearning for closure, likely of a romantic nature. As such, the band’s ability to bridge the gap between the tangible and the transcendental endows their music with a unique magical realism, and promises more esoteric imagery on their forthcoming sophomore effort, Omens, out September 27th. Dig it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney, Photo by Shervin Lainez
