A Benefit For A Friend In Need w/Sheer Mag at PhilaMOCA Nov. 14

The Deli Philly 2014 Best Emerging Artist Poll Winner, Sheer Mag recently announced that they'll be combining their first three seven-inches into one LP, entitled Compilation. They have also remastered the EPs I & II for the collection. Tonight is the hard-rockin', riff-lovin' quintet's last scheduled show in Philly before heading out on their tour of Australia and New Zealand so you want to make it out to PhilaMOCA this evening where they'll be holding A Benefit For A Friend In Need. Sheer Mag will be joined at this charitable R5-presented event by Philly punks Wild at Heart, whom we are expecting some good things from in the near future, and gutter-pop trio Metalleg. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12, All Ages - Alexis V.

New Track: "Not In The Sun" - Lunacy

Lunacy, the solo project from Nick Kulp (ex-Far-Out Fangtooth, ex-Creepoid), shared its second single off the forthcoming record, Life We Choose To Follow (Funeral Party Records). The EP's opener, "Not In The Sun," hides in the shadows of what feels like now a bleek future as a blanket of static haze is pulled over our heads to block out life. The album was recorded on a portable 4-track, with the help of vintage equipment, and will be available on cassette via Funeral Party Records on November 25, but you can pre-order it digitally below.


Taiwan Housing Project Sign to Kill Rock Stars

Congrats to noise-punks Taiwan Housing Project for signing to Kill Rock Stars! The revered indie label announced that they'll be releasing the band's EP Three Song Record, which originally surfaced via M'Lady's Records as a self-titled seven-inch. Willfully inaccessible and unapologetically harsh, feel free to take the album for a spin (once again) below. It just might be what you need today to shake off the recent horrific Trump announcement of white nationalist/antisemite/"alleged" domestic abuser Steve Bannon's appointment to the position of White House Chief Strategist. We haven't been overreacting. This isn't normal. Don't let them fool you into thinking that it is. Let's get ready for a battle, folks.

Cold Fronts Coming In at KFN Nov. 13

It's getting cold, kids - just in time for today’s powerhouse, matinee show at Kung Fun Necktiefeaturing Sire Records' Cold Fronts. Craig Almquist's brainchild has been rockin’ since 2010 when he was wrapping up school here in Philly. Many musicians have come and gone to fill the ranks - some revolving, but always at the core is Almquist. With a mercurial approach to life and to music, being at the right place at the right time has certainly paid off for the likeable frontman. His music follows suit, being of the moment and of the times, it’s uplifting, carefree with a purist “fuck all attitude.” Forever, Whatever takes no exception to this attitude. Cold Fronts will also be joined this afternoon by co-headliner Slingshot Dakota and Weakened Friends. It’s a rare all-ages show at the Fishtown waterhole, so all our readers under 21 should be taking advantage of this opportunity. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front. St., 4pm, $8, All Ages - Keith Kelley
