Weekend Warrior, May 29 - 31

The emotive punk-rock immediacy of Glocca Morra takes the stage for a final time headlining this Saturday evening at the First Unitarian Church. Though the band announced that it would be no more in late November, the group has been on a run of recent farewell dates. Individually, their creative output is now spread out in various outlets including The Spirit of the Beehive, Dogs on Acid, and Ghost Gum. While tonight’s show, which is being presented by R5 Productions  & The Guild, is sold out, those lucky enough to be inside are certain to witness a rowdy bon voyage, saturated in blood, sweat and tears. Fellow emo four-piece Clique and the harmony-wielding, all-female, garage-twee group Marge will help to fill-out the lineup, which also includes New York’s LVL UP, whom thoughtfully explore a myriad of the emotions in a rockin’ fashion, and the grungy, noise-rock of Toronto’s Greys. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 7:30pm, $12 (Sold Out), All Ages - Michael Colavita

Weekend Warrior, May 16 - 18

It’s fuckin’ pourin’ out! But you should definitely still join the rest of the denim-clad longhairs ready to rock tonight at Golden Tea House. Purling Hiss will be going back to their DIY roots headlining the West Philly house show this evening. You’ll also find Mike Bell & The Movies celebrating the release of their latest album. (Wait . Isn’t this like their third record release celebration for the same album - the second of this year!?! I guess that they’re getting some serious mileage out of it.) Perry Shall’s metal outfit Hound (who also just dropped its new LP Out of Time today) and twee-tinged rock gals Marge will be holding things down as well. Get wet - it will be worth it! Golden Tea House, (Please contact guildshows@gmail.com for more info.), 8pm, $5 - $7, All Ages - Alexis V.

New Track: "Will I Am" - Marge

Fledgling all-female indie-popsters Marge continues to search for their voice on the group's latest seven-song EP Not Bad. The album was recorded last month by Dan Angel and James Ryskalchick at West Philly's Sex Dungeon, and you can hear an obvious improvement in production on their most recent offering. Check out a more polished version of "Will I Am" below!


A Triad of Promising Locals in Albondigas, Marge & Cool Points at Golden Tea House Feb. 2

Tonight, The Guild presents an evening of music at Golden Tea House featuring a triad of promising local acts. Pop-punk quartet Albondigas offer rambunctiously loose (dare I say) playful songs that provide for a catchy advantageously energetic atmosphere. Speaking of playful, get acquainted with the female foursome of Marge. Intermingling open-book lyrics delivered in twee-fashioned layered with decidedly low-key bass groove-driven instrumentation, the band creates movement while focusing the spotlight on its words. Sharing a sense of lyrical honesty while demonstrating an opposing musical approach, noise-punks Cool Points unleash assertive artillery-style instrumentation, paired with Jill Mallon’s forthright vocals. A pair of Brooklyn-based rock groups with a sprinkling of punk tendencies in Adult Dude and female-fronted quartet Chumped round out the bill. Golden Tea House, (Please email goldenteahouse42069@gmail.com or booking@guildshows.com for more info.), 7:30pm, $5 - $7, All Ages - Michael Colavita


New Track: "Raincheck" - Marge

We've been noticing a rise in female-fronted garage-twee acts who are creating some adorably charming, lo-fi tunes. Below is a new track called "Raincheck" from local fledgling all-female four-piece Marge. They'll be performing this Sunday, February 2 at the Golden Tea House if you'd like to catch them live. Enjoy!
