Friday, September 28, 2012, 10:58 AM
We recently interviewed Hassan Ali Malik from Sunny Ali & The Kid to catch a glimpse into his touring and vacation plans, sources of inspiration, and hopes for the band. It looks like we're definitely going to book our tickets to Austria for some serious tagging along. L: What are the big plans... Read more

What I’m listening to: Thee Oh Sees

Thursday, September 13, 2012, 10:46 AM
San Fran rockers casually release one of the best rock records of the year I was at a bar the other day, talking with a friend, when he commented on the Death of Rock Music these days—how a good number of our popular bands consist of neon- and tight-pants-wearing, knob-turning, drum-kit-programming...

R5 announces a bunch of totally free Saturday shows

Tuesday, June 19, 2012, 3:47 AM
Morgan’s Pier has already become quite the Philly favorite since it opened last month. And now, with R5 hosting free outdoor summer shows there each Saturday afternoon/evening, it’s about to really become the place to be. No RSVP, no list, no tickets- it’s really as easy as F-R-E-E... Read more

What I’m listening to: Fair Ohs

Wednesday, July 27, 2011, 10:54 AM
London’s Fair Ohs craft messy, jangly, Afro-pop-inspired gems perfect for blaring from car stereos or rocking out to silently (via iPod) as you cruise around the city this summer. But that wasn’t always the case. Rather the band—a trio consisting of pals Eddy Frankel, Matt Flag and... Read more

The all-girl Philly grunge-rock duo, Slutever, are holding an awesome contest for their fans! It’s time to get creative, and maybe a little bit illegal, for this stencil competition. Go to Slutever’s website to print out a limited edition stencil of the band’s logo. After you cut... Read more

Slutever grunge out at The Bordello basement

Friday, January 7, 2011, 11:08 AM
Slutever, need I say more? The Philly girl grunge duo has received much critical acclaim in their short time on the scene. They're really something great and even so they still keep it punk playing weeknight basement shows. The crowd went wild for their performance; even with sound difficulties... Read more

What I’m listening to: Eternal Summers

Wednesday, November 3, 2010, 10:23 AM
It figures that as the last strains of Indian Summer fade, and the weather grows freakishly cold (yesterday was the first day of Glove Season), I’d fall in love with a band called Eternal Summers, who maybe aren’t even as summery as, say, Local Natives—but still reel you in with spirited...

What I’m listening to: Super Wild Horses

Wednesday, October 13, 2010, 10:37 AM
So, I confess I was a little late to the SWH party, mostly because their name is so embarrassing. Something about the juxtaposition of those 3 words just conjures up all sorts of ridiculous imagery: dudes with long, flowing, Fabian-style locks—and possibly capes—raising their fists and... Read more
