New Track: "Waitress" - Hop Along

Check out Hop Along's first single, "Waitress," from their forthcoming album Painted Shut! The record was produced by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., etc.) at Headroom Studio, and will be released on May 5 via Saddle Creek. The band is getting set to leave on tour at the end of this month with another hometown favorite The War on Drugs.


Snoozer Return w/New Material at Bourbon & Branch March 9

Rock trio Snoozer has been on a break from playing out while Mike O'Keefe, Paul Hewes, and Tom Moore have been working on some new tunes. You can take a listen to the band's latest six-song EP Cottage Cheese, which will be available on cassette via Ranch Records. The album was recorded at West Philly's Sex Dungeon. The group is also set to perform the songs live this evening at Bourbon & Branch. It will be Snoozer's first show in a bit, and they'll be joined by Brooklyn's Leapling and Baked. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Alexis V.


New Video: "Live In Philadelphia" (Out Of Town Films/Fat Possum) - The Districts

The Districts performed a "secret" show last December, under their alias Eight Legged Prawn, opening for mewithoutYou, who were also billed as Thy Foes Profanely Rage. Out Of Town Films was there to capture the rambuctious four-piece's set with permission from the group's record label Fat Possum. The video consists of live performances of the songs "4th and Roebling," Heavy Begs," "Chlorine," "Suburban Smell," and "Peaches." The band is currently touring the U.S., and will be heading over to Europe next month.


The Weaks Providing Power & Polish at Everybordy Hits March 8

Sunday night - one could sit back waiting as Monday lurks in the horizon, or you could stretch the weekend for all it’s worth and head over to Everybody Hits where rambunctious rockers The Weaks spearhead a four-pronged attack. With their debut LP Bad Year scheduled for release April 7 via Lame-O Records, the band offers attitude injected pop-punk that pounces on you with tough yet infectious songs that methodically breakout providing a sense of power and polish. As a hard-driving backend meets precise guitar licks and ever inviting lyrics, the experimental pop-rock outfit Purples eases you into its musical mode with a sense of comfort amid oddball tendencies, placing one in a familiarly warped place. The dreary haze of Queen Jesus also casts a strange embrace, crossing a loner vibe while painting the scenery with swirling pieces of sound. Matt Scheuermann’s personal meditative songwriting finds a focused fortitude as the beauty of Roses locks in a loaded local lineup. Everybody Hits, 539 W.
