Hezekiah Jones and Birdie Busch Folkin’ Out at JB’s Sept. 17

The Philly folk scene remains steadfast among the growing harvest of genres thriving on our fertile musical landscape. You’ll get a taste of some of the folk scene’s finest tonight at JB’s when Hezekiah Jones, a.k.a. Raph Cutrufello, and Emily “Birdie” Busch join forces. With the recent release of Everyone Will Take You In and plethora of local press/radio love, you should be no stranger to XPN darling Ms. Birdie Busch or her gentle flowing vocals (but don’t be fooled because this gal has some sass and soul in her). While Cutrufello may not receive all the accolades of his bill partner, he still simply continues to create beautiful comforting tunes that sometimes aren’t afraid to start a good ole hoedown. Be assured that plenty of the “Joneses” will be comin’ outta them there hills to join him (and her) on stage. But it’s all good in the hood because this evening’s theme is about family. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ (Hezekiah Jones Photo by Lisa Schaffer, Birdie Busch Photo by Denise Guerin) - Q.D. Tran

NYC Artists on the rise: Food Stamps, 8 NYC shows in a month?

Gee, don't we all miss early Ween? I personally also miss early They Might Be Giants, but I know some people have bad reactions when they hear that name. I mean, would we have had Beck without Ween? And TMBG were The Pixies' Black Francis favorite band... The two duos shared a super-playful, totally DIY approach to bedroom pop that many current lo-fi and or DIY NYC bands - consciously or not - inherited. This may sound weird, but Food Stamps (who curiously enough have in their name one of Ween's favorite themes - grub) could be described as a shoegazer, not as silly (but goofy in some kind of cool way) version of Ween. Well, yes, they do sound weird, in a charming way though. If you are interested in checking them out, you have plenty of opportunities - they have a gazillion shows in the NYC area in the next month...


Chesapeake's The Hunts to play Landmark Music Festival, 9/26

Seven siblings with names that all start with J and radio-ready musical talent is what you’ll find when you listen to The Hunts. Hailing from Chesapeake, VA, this septet masterfully dots their Americana-folk sound with elements of pop, indie, and alt, creating a textured and harmonic mosaic for your ears. Overlapping vocals and cheerfully plucked strings give way to drumbeats and quick violining. Catch an old hit of theirs below and check out their new LP Those Younger Days. They’ll be sharing their heartwarming set on 9/26 at the Landmark Music Festival in DC. -Jonathan Goodwin
