New Shannen Moser LP Available for Streaming & Download

We first caught wind of local lo-fi singer-songwriter Shannnen Moser from the compilation Girls to the Stage. The single brought to light her talent for stirring up emotions and melodies, while stringing together such thought-provoking, poetic, stream-of-consciousness lyrics. We were very interested to hear more from her, which we all now can. Take a break from life, and listen to her latest LP you shouldnt be doing that. You can thank us later.

Love On The Streets Fest at Pain's Park May 9

It's a helluva nice day to be outside and enjoy Love On The Streets Fest, a free live music and skateboarding event at Paine's Park. You'll find rad local acts Radiator Hospital, Dogs on Acid, Moon Bounce, W.C. Lindsay, Clique, and more playing today at the Mad Dragon Stage. There will also be skate demos featuring the Powerfulnailya Skate Team, street art, food and skate vendors as well as a performance by the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts. It'll be a perfect pre-game opportunity before our featured Weekend Warrior show pick with Hop Along this evening at Union Transfer! Pain's Park, MLK Drive & the Parkway, 12pm-8pm, Free, All Ages - Alexis V.


Weekend Warrior, May 8 - 10

Hop Along’s lead singer/songwriter Frances Quinlan is not a fan of musical comparisons to her work. Rather, she, along with the rest of band - Mark Quinlan, Tyler Long, and Joe Reinhart, just usually don’t get them. That makes sense when you’re a group that is hard to narrow down into one genre. There’s punk there, but there’s emo, and folk, and even hardcore too. But what’s most memorable of all about Hop Along, as any fan could tell you, is Quinlan’s voice - a rasp of power and vulnerability. On their new album, Painted Shut, released earlier this week via Saddle Creek, she tells twisted tale after twisted tale with vocals that are raw, genuine and shatteringly beautiful. She has the strength to add depth to those sort of awkward encounters like running into an old friend while working at a restaurant. (Quinlan has worked as a server and house painter on and off between tours.) Hop Along has relayed a bit of nervousness about their latest creation with producer John Agnello, but Painted Shut is so pure that it’s sure to be loved by their growing fan base. They'll be joined this Saturday at Union Transfer by local pals Thin Lips, whom are currently on tour with them, and CliqueUnion Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8pm, $14, All Ages (Photo by Ally Newbold) - Emily DiCicco
