Lina Tullgren plays the Middle East tonight (09.06)

Lina Tullgren is a New England-based singer-songwriter who composes raw and intimate music that seeks to find the balance between light and darkness. Tullgren’s latest EP Wishlist is a charming blend of honest folk and indie rock tunes that feature only Tullgren’s mellow, dreamy vocals and lightly strummed guitars. The album was influenced by her childhood growing up among many New England-based musicians and artists. On “Older” Tullgren sings in a hushed toned about wishing she didn’t have to grow older when its all she wanted as a kid. The track employs a minimalist style using only layered vocals and slow, dreamy guitars similar to Julien Baker. Lina Tullgren will be playing the Ian Sweet LP release show at the Middle East on September 6th! - John Honan





PAC NW Keeping the Festival Season Going

 As if the last couple weeks haven't been enough of a clusterfuck in the way of music festivals, tomorrow brings yet another to add to the list of attendance. This time around, it's a collaboration between three bar venues downtown and Lagunitas Brewing.

PAC NW Fest features 15 bands spread out across Dante's, Ash Street Saloon and Kelly's Olympian, all in one Saturday night. 

Catch what is sure to be a rowdy final performance from Foxy Lemon's drummer Zach Boggis as they headline the bill at Kelly's Olympian. Supporting them will be Bubble Cats, the Hoons, Keeper Keeper and Internal State. That side room at Kelly's is sure to reach capacity.

Over at Dante's, you'll find Seattle's Moon Darling, Willow House, Arlo Indigo and Just Lions opening up for King Who, the new moniker for the trippy synth pop group Us Lights.

Dark pop rock lovers Skull Diver will be closing out the night at Ash Street Saloon with their psychedelic visuals and ethereal vocals. Febian Perez's post-Bike Thief project Eclisse will also take the stage, along with Rader, Young Hunter and Salo Panto.

All shows start at 7 p.m. Wristbands for all three venues are available for $12 adv, $15 door with single show tickets being $8. Wristbands can be picked up tomorrow at Ash Street Saloon only. Purchase wristbands here. Enjoy!

Weekend Warrior, September 2 - 5

Though the corporate monstrosity known as Made In America will be taking over Center City Philly this weekend, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a safe haven away from the mainstream crap that will be flooding our streets. Tonight at Nacho House, get the feels with the warm, comforting harmonies of The Afterglows. The natural musical partnership of West Philly housemates Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party, ex-Ambulars) and Sam Cooke-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) will be celebrating the release of their collaborative self-titled debut LP, which you will be able to purchase this evening on vinyl. It will be a “chill” night of “soft sounds” that will also include local singer-songwriter Shannen Moser and former Chumped frontwoman Anika Pyle. And you won’t have to consume any crappy, overpriced Buds! Nacho House (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, Free, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman

Check out Cat Be Damned's thoughtful and sleepy dream pop

Cat Be Damned is the lo-fi recording project of Richmond artist Erik Phillips, whose latest album Daydreams in a Roach Motel was released in May via Joy Void Records. His intimately soft tracks reflect on his introverted and antisocial tendencies, while also examining religion and what it’s like to be queer in the South. Drawing from inspirations such as Elvis Depressedly, Neil Young, and Elliot Smith, Phillips’ sleepy tracks employ the use of hushed vocals and melodic synths to shape his placid sound. - John Honan
