Last Rockers of 2014 w/Sunny Ali & the Kid, The Might Paradocs & More at Dahlak Paradise Nov. 19

The tandem of Hassan Malik and Abdullah Saeed, a.k.a. Sunny Ali & the Kid, will make a rare live appearance as part of an appropriately diverse/eclectic lineup for the final Rockers event of the calendar year, which takes place in West Philly this evening at Dahlak Paradise. Sunny Ali & The Kid have a fluid musical framework touching on numerous genre ideas and delivering a cognizant lyrical message through the blending of garage-punk, electronic-psych, and hip-hop feel. The night will also feature the Afropunk stylings of The Mighty Paradocs, packing a purpose-laden punch and a highly energetic instrumentation that balance groove and assertive aggression. Dahlak Paradise, 4708 Baltimore Ave., 9pm, All Ages - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Big Adventure Single!" - Maximalism

Maximalism seems like an appropriate name for the project from Brad Podray. With his new track "Big Adventure Single!", you find a composition that plays out like the epic soundtrack to your favorite action/adventure video game. The dedicated Philly 8-bit music community could definitely get behind this mega-jam. "One track, 9 minutes, a variety of movements articulating one big, silly adventure." (BTW: Word of advice to Podray - ditch the vocalist that you experimented with on your last single, and keep the instrumentals coming.)
