Moon Bounce Opening for Phaelah at Boot & Saddle Sept. 19

Eclectic glitch producer Moon Bounce (a.k.a. Corey Regensburg) is set to scramble some brains this evening at the newly renovated Boot & Saddle. Taking cues from its neighbor/sister bar The Dolphin Tavern, electronic beats will be flowing through the recently re-opened South Philly establishment. The latest venue in the R5/Four Corners Management family will be hosting rising downtempo Bristolian producer Phaelah (a.k.a. Matt Preston), and his cinematic soundscapes, which are rooted in dubstep, garage and house. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $12, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman


Battleme EP Release at Bunk Bar 9.20

Portland’s songwriter extraordinaire, Battleme is back with a new label, new band members, and a new album that officially releases on Oct 8, 2013. Weight On The Brain (El Camino Media) is the follow up to a highly acclaimed and prominently featured self-titled first in 2012. Although the band’s founder, Matt Drenik (former member of Austin based band Lions) has many accomplishments his belt, this new album and current band has been his main focus. He is a famously hard worker that never disappoints, especially when it comes to a live show. Now a four piece, this band can deliver a sound with immense depth and raw flavor. The wide variety of songs they play shine a light in just about every direction of the musical spectrum, and are brought together by Matt’s etchy vocals and timeless songwriting. “Just Weight” is the first released song from the new album and immediately proves that rock and roll isn’t dead, in fact it’s just begun. - Colin Hudson

The Coal Men take part in the East Nashville Americana Showcase Tonight at the 5 Spot

The Coal Men have an endearing sort of grit to their wholesomeness. Over a decade of experience lends itself to the craftsmanship of their fourth album, “Escalator,” released August 27th. It is full of earnest tracks that tread between country and rock without a note wasted. “Stuck” would raise some red flags if it were an online dating profile: loud and heavy with some balls to it. They join Eric Brace, Peter Cooper, Tim Carroll, Kevin Gordon, Jon Byrd, Amelia White, and Mark Robinson at the 5 spot on Thursday, Sept.19th for the East Nashville Americana Showcase. -Terra James-Jura


NYC bands on the rise: El Rio plays Pianos on 09.21

After touring their experimental alt-rock around Argentina and France for the past several years, El Rio have now taken their particular sound science back up to NYC, where they just seem to get weirder and more addictive. First single 'So Old As To Have Become New Again,' (off the record of the same name) highlights a nod to '80s synth cool, while 'We've Both Got Fire' captures a sunnier soul in unapologetic 8-bit riffs and lullaby steel string rhythms. With a sound all mixed up together in one tropical destination, it should be a pleasure for NYC music fans to witness them live at Pianos this Saturday 09.21 at 9 pm. Listen to 'We've Both Got Fire' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
