Steady Hands Stopping by for an All-ages Show at The Fire Aug. 13

Steady Hands is currently on tour with W.C. Lindsay, and they'll be making a stop at The Fire tonight for an early all-ages show. What started out as a solo folk-punk project from Modern Baseball drummer Sean Huber has blossomed into a full band with help from the entire W.C. Lindsay crew, bandmate Jake Ewald, Evan Moorehead, and Andrew Kirnan. Steady Hands has a new EP, entitled Brandy Of The Damned, coming out on August 19 via Lame-O Records, but you'll be able to grab your copy beforehand at this evening's performance. Also on the bill are Florida's Echo Base and Henrietta and New Jersey's Lake Effect. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 7pm, $8, All Ages (Photo by Ally Newbold) - H.M. Kauffman


New Music Video: "Yellow Wallpaper" - Creepoid

Though Creepoid recently made a big move to Savannah, GA, the transient band is still keeping ties here in Philly with new member Nick Kulp continuing to work with his previous group Far-Out Fangtooth. Their latest video for "Yellow Wallpaper," off the group's self-titled LP, is also the directorial debut of local photographer and octopus chandelier sculptor Adam Wallacavage, with help from Eric Weiss. The band is currently on tour with Against Me, and will be returning to Philly on Saturday, October 4 to perform at the TLA with Balance and Composure. (Photo by Adam Wallacavage)


Free Download: "Don't Need Love" - Night Panther

Below is a new track that Night Panther just posted called "Don't Need Love," which you can stream and download for free below. You may hear hints of synth master Thomas Dolby in this late summer groove. Night Panther will be performing next week at Spruce Street Harbor Park on Thursday, August 21 with Pattern is Movement.


New Video: "Shut In" (Live) - Strand of Oaks

Strand of Oaks, a.k.a. Timothy Showalter, made his network television debut last night on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Backed by Eliza Hardy-Jones (piano), Deven Craige (bass), and Mike Sneeringer (drums), the group performed "Shut In" of his latest LP HEAL (Dead Oceans). They'll be performing next in Philly to sold-out crowds on Friday, September 19 and Saturday, September 20 at The Boot & Saddle. (Photo by Creeping Elm)


Tender Vision Opening for Beverly at The Boot & Saddle Aug. 12

With their debut LP Trust Lust looming on the horizon, Adrianne Gold and William Sallee (ex-Catnaps), a.k.a. Tender Vision, are set to kick off the bill this evening at The Boot & Saddle. The pairing, which expands in a live format, toes the line, fusing a playful humor, while maintaining a serious tone, as evident in “ I Hate Change.” That ability to lyrically/musically find a gray area could be an avenue that gives them space to cover subjects from an unexpected perspective. The lineup also features the melodic intimate rock-surf groove of quintet, Roof Doctor, and the evening is headlined by Brooklyn-based trio Beverly, which began as a collaboration between Frankie Rose and Drew Citron (Avan Lava) before Rose departed. They released their full-length debut Careers last month via Kanine Records. The Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Free Download: "Confession" - Bondage & Discipline

Below is the second single from Bondage & Discipline called "Confession," which you can stream and download below. The former guys and gal of The National Rifle continue in the direction that they began to follow towards the end of their previous recording catalogue, as shimmering synths and emotive vocals wash over the octane-fueled jams of yesteryear. Their latest track was recorded at South Philly's Cambridge Sound Studios with producer, Todd Mecaughey. The group's debut album is expected to be release in the spring of 2015.

New Video: Kensington Picnic II - Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler

Kensington Picnic II was blessed with great weather this Saturday that fed into good vibes that resonated throughout the day. After a freewheelin', rock 'n' roll set by Spacin', which included a new fifth member on saxophone and flute, the crowd smoothly transitioned and attentively listened to a mesmerizing set by Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler that welcomed the setting of the sun. You can view and take a listen to part of the performance below, which was recorded and posted by co-event organizers Fire Museum. (Photo by Kyle Andrews)
