Grooms hosts Brooklyn Bazaar Release Show on 10.25

Returning with a fifth album set to further the band’s exploration of ambience and shoegazey guitar effects, Grooms brings the music to Brooklyn Bazaar on October 25. Lead singles from Exit Index showcase swelling synths amidst the moody wash of sound without straying from Grooms’ usual noisy fare. The band’s brigade of fuzz and other-worldly effects is ideal for live shows where the onslaught of guitar and drums crashes into you with the force of a brick wall. One of the few brick walls you should be excited to crash into. – Cameron Carr





New Track: "Fingernail Clipping of the Moon" - Johnny Showcase

You may or may not recognize David Sweeny as the charismatic sex machine that is Johnny Showcase. The multi-faceted performer is now teaming up with fellow Pig Iron Theatre Co. alum Sarah McCarron & Yuval Boim, and utilizing his various talents to make the South Philly-based indie film D.I.Y., a non-traditional rom-com where a queer-identified couple decides to plan an alternative wedding, clashing against the marriage industrial complex. “In a world where institutions are constantly changing, how do we define for ourselves what it means to commit to our most intimate relationships?”

Sweeny will be pulling double duty in the production's lead role and as the film’s Music Director, and he just shared a breezy, new Johnny Showcase ditty, called “Fingernail Clipping of the Moon”. The lighthearted, ukulele-driven number will appear on the movie’s soundtrack, which will feature contributions from a variety of local musicians. The D.I.Y. folks are also currently involved in Seed&Spark’s Hometown Hero competition (which ends this Friday), and they could use your help to win a chance to work with the lauded Duplass Brothers. So give the gang some hometown love, and FOLLOW them HERE!





QTY releases debut LP, embarks on headline tour, plays Irving Plaza on 10/28

NYC rock duo QTY shares their latest single ‘Michael’ in advance of an October-November headline tour and releases of self-titled debut album on 11/3.  Produced by Bernard Butler of iconic 90’s Britpop band Suede, the album promises an excess-free listening experience full of hooks and charming character.  The single (streaming below) delivers that with a thoroughly catchy chorus “that’s how it goes.  You’re alright until you’re sweating chemicals.”  Clever lyrics are woven throughout, with one verse stating “I miss the stresses of being strung out a couple months - now all my stress is from what somebody else wants.”  Deep voiced and conversational, singer Dan Lardner channels Lou Reed’s style, while cohort Alex Niemetz adds female harmonies and essential guitar licks.  The band's album will be released on Dirty Hit records, and will be supported by a tour starting on 10/11. The NYC stop will be on October 28 stop at Irving Plaza.  - Dave Cromwell





Yucky Duster open for LVL UP at Baby's All Right on 10.07

Yucky Duster will take the stage at Baby's All Right to open for LVL UP on October 7th. The four-piece have had quite a year, releasing their second EP Duster's Lament in January and receiving write-ups from VICE and Stereogum soon afterwards. Their Baby's opening act with Long Beard follows other performances with big indie acts earlier this year, including Sammus, Charly Bliss, and Shonen Knife. A few months ago, they released the music video for their Duster's Lament track "The Ropes". Watch it below. - Will Sisskind





Weekend Warrior, October 6 - 8

Cherry’s debut full-length album, Dumbness, is out now via Lame-O Records, and this Saturday, the Russell Edling-led outfit finds its way into South Philly’s Boot & Saddle. Dumbness melodically awakens memories, meditatively tapping into past. An eerie familiarity looms throughout the album; it stirs in a fuzzy friction of reflective folk, as one comes home after a long absence realizing that time alters people, places, and perspectives. It’s a temporary time warp, linking a cross-section of genres, without running off course. Tonight, they’ll supported by the at ease, slow-burning sounds of Yankee Bluff, and things will be kicked off by Clasp, featuring Kat Bean (Amanda X). – Michael Colavita
