Glocca Morra

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

Hop Along & Glocca Morra Opening for Owls at Union Transfer July 14

Owls return to Philly tonight for a special show at Union Transfer, and they’ll be supported by an assortment of eclectic local bands that are joining them on tour. Ever since releasing their debut full-length Get Disowned, Frances Quinlan and the rest of Hop Along have garnered much well-deserved praise, and have performed with noteworthy bands like Fucked Up, The Sidekicks, and The Thermals. The four-piece will surely be pulling out all the stops for their hometown friends and fans this evening. Glocca Morra is the kind of Philly-inspired DIY band that sends out EPs like Museum Mouth with hand-drawn paper bag art. And with their recent summer hiatus to prep for this tour while working on new material, tonight might be the perfect occasion for a preview of what the guys have instore for their next release.
