New Music Video: "The Way Home" - Mo Lowda & The Humble

Here's a new music video from Mo Lowda & The Humble for "The Way Home," the first track on their latest album Curse the Weather. It contains archived images transposed inside the silhouettes of the trio during a performance, and was produced/edited by Darragh Dandurand. Mo Lowda & The Humble will be performing next in Philly on New Year's Eve at Ortlieb's.


New Track: "American Christmas, Idiot" - Mike Bell & the Movies

With Christmas on the horizon, it's good to see artists donating their talents to raise money for good causes. Mike Bell & the Movies recently shared a pop-punk tune called "American Christmas, Idiot," and will donate proceeds from its sales to Rock to the Future, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides free music education for under served Philadelphia youth. They'll also be ringing in the New Year at DIY concert space/batting cages Everybody Hits alongside The Spirit and the Beehive.


Show Alert: Them Vibes, Super Shaker, and Slowriter at The East Room 12.22

Whether you're leaving town in a few days or about to have an unwanted houseful of relatives, take advantage of your f*cked-up holiday schedule by treating Monday like a Friday and taking yourself out to see some music. The East Room has a great lineup for such an off night, consiting of some local faves, up-and-comers, and out-of-towners. Its also budget-friendly at $5. The show starts at 8pm, and is 18+.

Them Vibes:

It's no secret that the Deli Nashville loves Them Vibes, who have always proven capable of bringing some down and dirty rock and roll to any situation, and countering it with some down-home rootsiness. We've been digging the level of quality in their recent video for "Lorelei."

Super Shaker:

We posted about their single "Kong" a few months ago, and then chanced upon them last Wednesday at the Tin Roof, and were blown away. While "Kong" might conjure visoins of some rigid nerd rockers poking at keyboards, Super Shaker kicked our expectations in the face with their high-energy onslaught of gritty, post-punk electronica. These boys can put on a SHOW.


Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Bryan Taylor and a rotating cast of friends operates under the title of Slowriter. He coaxes out interesting loops with a hip-hop sense of direction, and branding them with his particular quirk and earnesty. "King of the Void" is the title track of his recent 2014 release.


Philadelphia Independent Craft Market w/Khari Mateen at District N9NE Dec. 21

The 8th Annual holiday edition of the Philadelphia Independent Craft Market descends upon District N9NE today, just in time for some last minute shopping for the perfect gift. And it will feature 40+ arts & craft and vintage vendors who will be selling an eclectic selection of handmade jewelry, apparel, antiques, and then some. There will also be food supplied from the likes of Vernalicious and the Cupcake Carnivale as well as refreshments from Philadelphia Brewing Company. It wouldn't be an Independent Craft Market without some live music, and this time it will be headlined by the Grammy/Emmy-winning multi-instrumenatlist, songwriter, and producer Khari Mateen. The multi-faceted musician has recently collaborated with his father, Radji Mateen Sr., who is a seasoned saxophonist that has worked with the likes of Kindred Family Soul, Dice Raw, and Snoop Dog, to rework his song Thinking About You. The market will also feature a performance by The Philadelphia Reggae Band. District N9NE, 460 N. 9th St, 12pm, $2, All Ages - Bill McThrill
