Too Cool For School Winter Fest Dec. 10

Post-finals rager Too Cool For School Winter Fest sets to start winter break with a bang. The perfect combo between house show meets house party, tonight’s celebration includes an impressive lineup of Philly’s next generation of lo-fiers for the affordable price of FREE. Dreamy tracks like “Smile” by Gypsy Death and You fit the mood of the occasion with upbeat chords and optimism while the two-piece’s fuzzed-out revamp of Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Something I Can’t Have” plays out lush and loud. Boy plus girl punks Omar (Candice uses picks and Nick uses sticks and they both lalala) might incite a blitzkrieg bop with fast paced anthems like “Triracial Cat” and “Jumping Jacks”. Add in self-proclaimed "shit-fi" compliments of Slutever with washed out pop by Slow Animal and you’ve got the perfect prelude to the freedom of yet another semester’s end.

RX opens for Tricky at Brooklyn Bowl on 12.10

Tricky’s been dubbing up your shoegaze since he launched from Massive Attack in the 90s. This Friday night before he floods the lanes of Brooklyn Bowl with his signature dense trip-hop, a new taste of the dubstep movement will warm up the subwoofers; Rx hails from Philly, but his records and remixes are receiving heavy rotation across the U.S. and in Europe. Remixes of JupiterOne, A Place To Bury Strangers and French Horn Rebellion are top selects, but his own music is potent enough to flood your brain with endorphins. If your in need of a dose of sweaty dancefloor mayhem, you’ll want to pop on over to Brooklyn Bowl this Friday. Rx goes on at 8, not recommended on an empty stomach. - BrokeMC


Houses for the Hoilday

Not to double up on Houses, but this just came into the ol' inbox. Houses, Dexter Tortoriello and Megan Messina, have released a holiday song called "This Is War", and an accompanying video. This is what Dexter had to say about the song. "Holiday songs are often about snow, gifts or family - all of which are happy and nice - but when you stop and think about it, most holidays are based around very serious events. Christmas is, at its core, a recognition of the birth of one of the most famous and controversial figures in history. His birth and life are a truly incredible story in themselves, regardless of your personal beliefs. The song is about that very first Christmas day."

The Babies announce album for 2011 + West coast tour

The Babies if the band of Kevin Morby - who plays bass in Woods, and Cassie Ramone, who lays guitar in Vivian Girls and - as far as we know - is not related to any of the Ramones, although it would be extremely cool if she was. Justin Sullivan, who had played with Cassie in Bossy, joined the duo on drums, and the Babies debuted in March 2009 as a three-piece at Dead Herring, their friendsʼ loft in Brooklyn. Rough, chilled and slightly out of tune as you would expect them to be, The Babies' songs will see their first full length release in 2011 on Shrimper Records. The band will also tour the West Coast in January, where theyʼre temporarily relocating for the winter to write their second record, before going to Europe in the spring of 2011.
