On the Move w/DRGN KING & Busses at PhilaMOCA June 28

Dominic Angelella leads the eclectic indie-rockin’ DRGN KING performing tonight at PhilaMOCA. The group blends elements of rock, electronica and hip hop, and the mix results in a rambunctious brand of music that harnesses a groove and fuses it with Angelella’s “round up the troops vocals.” It’s a sound that’s easy to back - part sleazy, part stealth and perpetually on the move. The psychedelic-tinged rock trio of Busses builds off comfortable, familiar vibes and then breaks away into lesser-traveled territory. These two locals will be combining forces this evening with Vermont power trio Bird Name. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $8 - $10 Donation, All Ages - Michael Colavita


New Video: "Undertow" (Brighton Sound Session) - DRGN KING

Here's a groovy new tune from DRGN KING called "Undertow." It was recorded for the Brighton Sound Sessions.


New Video: "Holy Ghost" (Out Of Town Films) - DRGN KING

Check out the latest video from Out Of Town Films with DRGN KING performing "Holy Ghost"! It was one the two songs recorded at an impromptu session hosted by Girard Hall after the band's recent show at Kung Fu Necktie on May 9, 2013. Below are a few words from Out Of Town Films about the evening. 

Two weeks ago, we invited local Philly band DRGN King to come play at Girard Hall after their show at Kung Fu Necktie. The plan was to have them play acoustically and to have a few people over to watch the performance. Well, things didn’t go exactly as planned and for the better. The acoustic set turned into a full on electric set and the few people turned into many people. So basically it was a mini-show. 
The police were lurking outside since it was midnight on a Thursday and DRGN King were playing pretty loudly. They only had time for two songs. One of which was “Holy Ghost”, a song apparently about looking like Jesus. Enjoy.


New Video: "Looking At You" (Brighton Sound Sessions) - DRGN KING

Here's a new in-studio video of DRGN KING performing their song "Looking At You," which is off their debut LP Paragraph Nights, for the Brighton Sound Sessions. You can catch them headlining tomorrow night at Kung Fu Necktie. Enjoy!


DRGN KING Opening for Low Cut Connie at JB’s March 29

It’s good to have a comfort zone, know what you’re good at, and perfect it. But DRGN King refuses restrictions, pushing out of comfort and into experiment. Their most recent album, Paragraph Nights, spans genres - from lo-fi psych rock with lots of feedback to pounding anthems for nonconformity. The songs don’t flow into one another; they evolve from one style to the next. Lead vocalist Dominic Angelella is no newbie to the Philly scene. A renaissance man, his involvement in a myriad of groups throughout the years has not only refined his musical palate, but broadened it, creating an insatiable passion for expression evident in his resonant lyrics. Partnering with experienced hip-hop producer Ritz Reynolds just added to the possible spectrum for Angelella, bringing to the table multi-layered beats and a unapologetic sampling mix. The duo found compliments to their live performances in later members Steve Montenegro on bass and effects, Brendan Mulvihill playing guitar and sampling, and Joe Baldacci on drums. Sharing the stage is Low Cut Connie, a band with roots in Philly and a sound that’d definitely taken a trip or two in Doc Brown’s DeLorean. Fueled by bluesy piano riffs, the band does not shy away from the past. Their current release, Call Me Sylvia, harkens back to the style of dance hall swing with a bit of rockabilly twang. Members Adam Weiner, Dan Finnemore and Ian Vos have seen an influx of popularity of late, their track “Boozophilia” was named one of Rolling Stone’s top 50 songs of 2012. But to the listener, it just seems like these guys are all about having fun and playing what they love - good ol’ foot-stomping, hand-clapping rock ‘n’ roll. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., $12, 9:30pm, 21+ - Shaylin O’Connell
