Brooklyn grindcore band Mary Todd to Play St. Vitus on 7.17

Combining traditional grindcore with math rock shredding and a strong death metal sensibility, Mary Todd delivers explosive tracks that never leave the listener in one place for long. Climbing bass lines are pitted against complex guitar riffs, often threatening to drop off into total musical mayhem, but in a single swift motion, seamlessly return to navigating tightly through the tracks. Check them out for what can only be a face-melting set at St. Vitus on 7/17/16 opening for Old Lines and Prisoner- Olivia Sisinni


Elison Jackson to release new EP and play The Press Room on 7/16

On their latest EP Silver Sounds: Hallucinations,  Elison Jackson, a band split between Philly and New Haven, CT, added an extra layer to their already (very) psychedlic sound, by dropping a record that resembles a psychedlic experience in of itself. Each track on the EP is distinct in genre, thus providing a true "trip' through different kinds of music.  On "Ghost Fucker," they kick-off with a forebodingly minimalist psych-rock song, but then immediately shift to loud guitar-rock on "Thru the Trees." From there they go from folk-pop to psych pop moments, to finish off with a sludgy folk rock song entitled Wal-Mart. Elison Jackson recently released trippy visuals for "Ghost Fucker," and you can catch them at The Press Room with People Like You on July 16.  —Henry Solotaroff-Webber 

The Rivals Reunite at Boot & Saddle July 15

Tonight at Boot and Saddle is a full lineup of Philadelphia artists who find their strength in nostalgia. The Rivals will reunite for one evening, and bring their brooding, psychedelic rock, with influences ranging from The Doors to The Black Keys. The moody harmonies and intricate guitars are what drive the tunes forward. The band is returning to the scene for this show, so expect some serious solos and a whole lot of energy from a group that has been dormant for a bit. Also performing is the high energy acoustic rock of Bryant Eugene Vasquez, who is part Lou Reed and part Modest Mouse. The California native has been in Philly for the past 2 years, and the ups and downs of moving to our humble city resulted in his most recent effort All Damn Day/ The Greatest Hits. Both artists are opening for classic rock outfit Song Dogs in what will be a great night in South Philly filled with good friends and tunes. Boot & Saddle, 1131 Broad St., $12, 8pm, 21+ - Adam G.

People and Stars announce self-titled debut EP

Risen from the demise of local favorites Fonda, People & Stars wave goodbye to the miasmic sounds of shoegaze and welcome some good-natured indie pop on their latest incarnation. Featuring both original members David Klotz and vocalist Amanda Tate, the duo's latest single, "You're Not Alone", is a brightly uptempo number akin to the immaculately crafted chamber pop of bands like Acid House Kings and The Postmarks.

People and Stars are set to release their self-titled debut EP on July 15 via Minty Fresh. - Juan Rodríguez
