Weekend Warrior, April 28 - 30

There is way too much going on this weekend in Philly, and it looks like the weather is going to be fan-fuckin-tastic! So what’s on our agenda? Psych outfit The Spirit of the Beehive have been on an extensive tour of the U.S. for the past month and a half, bringing the wonderful weirdness of their LP Pleasure Suck (Tiny Engines) to the masses. They’ll be returning home this evening to finally celebrate the record’s release among friends at Everybody Hits, where they’ll be supported by Three Man Cannon, YT, and Old Maybe. Laser Background will also be holding an album release party of their own for Dark Nuclear Bogs this Saturday night with good pals Norwegian Arms, Breathers, and YCIB at Baird Mansion Atrium.

Get Better Fest 4 will be taking place over the weekend at the First Unitarian and PhilaMOCA, as well as Glitter Galaxy. The two-day event taps the talented and socially conscious Philly punk community to raise donations this year for the Trans Assistance Project, Youth Emergency Service, and Women Against Abuse. At the showcase, you’ll find Deli faves +HIRS+, Thin Lips, Radiator Hospital, Amanda X, Soul Glo and many more (view the full lineup HERE) raging out for good causes. And of course, there is the NFL Draft going on at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and besides seeing some future NFL millionaires, you’ll be treated to performances from rising stars in the local music community such as Strand of Oaks, The Districts, Tunji Ige, Chill Moody, and Good Old War. So get out, and take advantage of living in such a rad city! - Alexis V.

New Track: "Company Man" - MINKA

Calling to mind a hybrid of the Davids - Byrne & Bowie, Ari "Dick" Rubin, Max Perla, Joe Flack, and Barney Cortez (Nicos Gun, Rich Mystics), better known as MINKA, are gearing up to release their new EP Born in the Viper Room. The title gives a nod to infamous Sunset Strip club (once owned by Johnny Depp), where the late, great River Phoenix took his last breath that fateful Halloween morning of 1993 (and is supposedly where Cortez, the band's most recent addition, was born). Take a listen to the Philly electro-rockers' latest single, "Company Man," from their forthcoming album, and look out for the MINKA dance party/carnival coming to a venue near you!

New Caffeine Machine LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

After an extended absence, Quinn Arlington Waters, a.k.a. Caffeine Machine, has returned with a new album, The Grey Man. Densely layered orchestration cuts through with sticky, hazy grooves akin to MMJ. Utilizing gear-shift tendencies whether ramping up or simmering to a sway, the album heads in unpredictable directions, but remains cohesively on course. Listen as the plot twists.





Debut The Junto EP Available for Streaming & Download

Former Cousin Brian members Sean Caruthers, Shane Olsen, and Jake Cheesseman, collectively known as The Junto, have released their debut self-titled EP. The trio embraces loose, rolling, bass grooves and infectious melodies in a calming manner, brimming with rowdy potential. It’s a joyfully sticky collection of songs that you’ll probably want to spin more than once, and we’ll be looking out for the fledgling outfit on upcoming bills.
