Modern Baseball

Modern Baseball Hosting Emperor X at Golden Tea House March 28

Exposing yourself to so much music can leave you a bit exhausted, even somewhat jaded. Bands start to overlap, and sometimes they can seem somewhat stale, overdone, and somewhat indistinguishable from one another. You look for the subtle differences that separate acts. This problem doesn’t really seem to be the case with Philly by way of Maryland emo act Modern Baseball. Playing straightforward, chord-based music, the simplicity of it all is complemented nicely by tasteful guitar work. Their lyrics are often lamenting - subjects of failed relationships but with a certain resonating relevance that has bits of nostalgia that cut deep. Their LP Sports was released at the end of last year, and is already going through its second go-around with its re-release via Run For Cover Records. Check them out tonight at Golden Tea House in support of New Jersey emo/punk act Dads and acoustic punk/folk veteran Emperor X. Also making an appearance will be Philly faves the Stable Boys and resuscitated, energy-infused two-piece Omar. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or the venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $5 - $7, All Ages - Ed Newton

Modern Baseball Return From Tour at The Barbary Jan. 7

Modern Baseball recently returned from tour in support of last year’s charming and underrated release Sports, which is the band’s first full-length album and is available via Philly’s own Lame-O Records. The local four-piece wades in the confessional waters of Midwest emo, whilst swimming in the pool of pop-punk. You can welcome them home this evening at The Barbary where they’ll be sharing the bill with out-of-towners Pity Sex (Run For Cover Records) and Waxahatchee (Don Giovanni Records). There will also be addition local support from Cayetano and Secret Plot to Destroy The Entire Universe (Kat Kat Records), who will be kicking off their tour. The Barbary, 951 N. Frankford Ave., 6pm, $8, All Ages (Ashley Catharine Smith) - H.M. Kauffman
