Indie Rock

Brooklyn Political punk act, Worriers, announced their upcoming headline show at Mercury Lounge on April 21st, joined on stage by Philly's Pouty (ex-Slutever, Upset) and Don Giovanni label-mates Painted Zeros, who play dreamy post punk and are also based in NYC.  Worriers is currently finishing a 5-week eastern US tour that included dates supporting The Smith Street Band and The Falcon (Lawrence Arms, Alkaline Trio, Loved Ones) along with an official appearance at SXSW. This will be the band’s first New York headline date of the year, after sold-out shows supporting Iron Chic and The Smith Street Band. 

Echoscape unveils video for "March of A Lonesome Man" + plays Pianos on 05.04

We discovered Echoscape, the brainchild of NYC's dreamy acoustic guitar virtuoso Satoshi Inoue, through our latest Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists.  As you can see from his latest video for instrumental piece "March of A Lonesome Man," the young man has a rather unique way to play that instrument. His sung songs blend dream pop, folk and math rock in unexpected ways, check out his recent single 'Brightest,' below. You can catch Echoscape live at Pianos on May 4th.

SATE unveils new video for "Know My Name" + plays CMW on 05.04

Toronto's soul rock queen SATE, winner of our recent Best of Toronto 2015 poll for emerging artists, just released this new video for single "Know My Name," which confirms the lady's undeniable power and talent. Don't miss her next show at Lee's Palace during CMW on May 4th, after which she will leave for a brief East Coast tour that will take her also to NYC.


New Track: "Falling Into Skies" - Queue

Quintet Queue breathes an open-air melody on “Falling Into Skies”. A climbing guitar line falls into step with the percussion as Olivia Price’s vocals emerge through the highly-elevated clouds. Hovering in that semi-conscious groove, the single places you in an elegant, awakening limbo.

Beyond The Bars Fundraiser w/The Districts, Hop Along's Frances Quinlan & More at WCL April 17

World Cafe Live is hosting a fundraiser for Beyond The Bars, featuring rising local artists such as The Districts and Hop Along’s Frances Quinlan. All ticket sales will benefit the Beyond The Bars program, which provides musical education and instruments for incarcerated youth in Greater Philadelphia. The program seeks to empower these disadvantaged young men and women by equipping them with an outlet for creative expression and a sense of agency while they grapple with the frequently disorienting and dissociative bureaucracy of the criminal justice system. In support of this righteous cause, The Districts will take to the stage on Sunday evening with their universally adored, weary-plodding folk-pop/rock. Frances Quinlan will jolt you awake with her electric and hugely dynamic voice. Also pitching in for the cause will be Lushlife (DJ Set), Queen of Jeans, Ben Arnold, Milton, and The Bul Bey. World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St, 4pm, $20, All Ages. - Bryce Woodcock
