The Loved Ones
The Loved Ones
Few bands explode out of the gate the way Philadelphia’s The Loved Ones did. The band released a 6-song EP in 2005 and then steam-rolled into their debut full length, Keep Your Heart a year later. They toured internationally to critical acclaim and became instant fan favorites. Their relentless touring and recording schedule brought plenty of success, but also line-up changes and an eventual much-needed break by 2010. The break turned into an unspoken hiatus, and as each member went on to other ventures, musical and otherwise, everyone assumed the band had faded into the rearview. Everyone except for the fans, that is.

In the spring of 2014, The Loved Ones were asked to play the European festival Groezrock. All of the band members miraculously had their schedules clear, and so they agreed to play. The three-piece line up from Keep Your Heart (Dave Hause, Vocals/Guitar, Mike Sneeringer, Drums, and Michael Cotterman, Bass) was combined with the Build and Burn (2008) line-up (Dave Walsh, Guitar, Chris Gonzalez, Guitar) to form the strongest and most ferocious version of the band to date. In an effort to not make a mess of their first show in 4 years, they figured they’d book a few hometown warm-up shows in Philadelphia and New Jersey but had no idea what to expect. The fans instantly scooped up the tickets in minutes, and the shows were an incredible celebration of the music they had made together. While rehearsing and playing the shows, they decided to honor the 10-year anniversary of their landmark debut record by setting aside the time to play a NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on February 19th, 2016. That show has already SOLD OUT, so they decided to add Boston and Philly to the mix as well...Here’s our chance to see a rare thing.
Cayetana
Cayetana
Cayetana, a three-piece from Philadelphia, PA, formed a band and a great friendship in early Fall 2011, creating indie punk poppy jams full of raw sound and energy.
Little Big League
Little Big League
From the very start of Little Big League’s LP Tropical Jinx, it’s clear that there is nothing little about the band or their second full-length album. In fact, there is an unmistakable depth in these ten indie rock gems that makes each song fulfilling in a dozen different ways. The brutally honest lyrics of guitarist/vocalist Michelle Zauner are one of the album’s undeniable high points: the confessions and confrontations about dealing with family life, relationships and personal failures are both relatable and cathartic. Little Big League have created something special on Tropical Jinx. It is an homage to the best moments of alternative rock with the unmistakable spirit of Philadelphia DIY, blended in a way that demands your immediate attention.
