Pennsylvania’s own Tigers Jaw and Modern Baseball performed March 1 at Flux along with fellow punk band Sun. The show was reportedly very close to selling out, making the already small Intercultural Center basement even tinier. That being said, it really brought some energy to the concert, especially in the front and center. From my [...]

The music industry is building a conglomerate of the synthetic: mannequins whose concerts revolve around putting on a spectacle with bright lights, robotic dance moves and outfits that look like they belong in an abstract art exhibit rather than on a human being. However, Free Energy proved to be as real as it gets after [...]
After some discussion while sitting backstage before their April 15 CD release show at World Cafe Live, members of the Drexel-based band D & M agreed that they would settle for being the third-biggest band in the world. “We don’t want to be the biggest. I don’t want to have to spend too much time [...]
Say Anything performed live last Sunday night at the TLA in Philadelphia to a packed crowd. Opening acts included Tallhart, Fake Problems and Kevin Devine & the Goddam Band. Say Anything played such songs as “Shiksa (Girlfriend),” “Woe,” “Every Man Has a Molly” and “Walk Through Hell.” South Street may harbor a certain flare for [...]
London’s Fanfarlo played March 8 at Union Transfer in support of their thoroughly enjoyable second album, “Rooms Filled With Light.” It was a fairly large step up in terms of the size of venues that they had played previously (the band described Union Transfer as “the nicest place we have ever played”), but they were [...]
As a self-proclaimed jam band nerd, I have developed the bad habit of assuming that I know everything there is to know about jam bands and the scene that surrounds them. So it was with full confidence in my jam band intelligence that I went to see moe. (Yes, all lower case, with a period [...]
Almost a quarter of 2012 has passed by, and so far the year has been generous with new album releases. The end of winter also means an overwhelming amount of spring tours. Here are some bands with new records that will be stopping in Philadelphia in the coming months. Dry the River — “Shallow [...]
“Some Nights,” the newest album by fun., was released Feb. 21, and to no one’s surprise, it amazes anyone who hears it. Opening the album differently than any other I have ever heard, with the addition of a chamber choir, “Some Nights” brings us back to the unique sound in the beginning of the album, [...]
Frontman Andrew McMahon stole the crowd at his sold out show at the TLA. The evening opened with solo artist Allen Stone and Jukebox The Ghost. In this cold winter season we all need a little something to remind us that warmth and sunshine still exist. Just give Jack’s Mannequin a listen for a quick [...]
Talk of dead baby whales and jellyfish-inspired stage props were perfectly acceptable at a Friday Free at Noon concert at World Cafe Live, as long as it was Rachael Yamagata commenting. Yamagata was performing in a free-entry concert Sept. 30 for WXPN 88.5 radio on tour promoting her third studio album, “Chesapeake,” which was released [...]
Since Two Door Cinema Club last made a stop in Philadelphia back in January, the band’s popularity has exploded. Their songs are now heard regularly on the radio and stores such as Forever 21 and H&M now include the Northern Irish trio’s music on their soundtrack. The band’s music is infectious and spreading fast but [...]
