New Track: "Rare Air" - Jon Coyle

Jon Coyle (of Son Step) recently unearthed and completed a solo track that was actually written four years ago. Available for purchase with 100% of this month’s proceeds being donated to Planned Parenthood, “Rare Air” marries the grogginess of fuzz with the illuminating swing of percussion and keys. Son Step is set to perform next in Philly at Kung Fu Necktie on Tuesday, December 6 with Sunjacket.

Weekend Warrior, November 25 - 27

Thanksgiving is a time for homecoming and festivities. And that's exactly what The Districts have in mind when they return to Philly for a little break from their fall tour. The hometown love is strong for the Lititz, PA transplants, so just one show might not be enough for their friends and fans this holiday weekend. Instead, they've setup a Trifecta of kick-ass, sold-out shows, with the help of some talented friends, that will be beginning this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Tonight, the introspective beauty of Kississippi will be tugging at the heartstrings, after a dramatic, oddly spooky performance from Baltimore’s Albert Bagman. On Saturday, you’ll find The Districts joined by buzzworthy Philly newcomers Tangiers and The Dove & The Wolf. And finally, the Fat Possum artists will be hosting a very rare, all-ages show at JB’s on Sunday that also features alt-rockers Mumblr, who will be happily returning home from their own big tour. Johnny Brenda's, 1201. N Frankford Ave., 9pm (7pm - Sunday), SOLD OUT, 21+ (All Ages - Sunday) (Photo by Sarah Rudderow) - Bill McThrill

Creepoid EP Release Show at KFN Nov. 25

An atmosphere of catharsis with a penchant to soak in the searing melodically noisy chaos, Creepoid sits back in serenely somber, with the ability to flip the switch, mesmerizing in the eerie echoing ascension. On the evening of its release, the band celebrates their fresh EP Burner (available via WavePOP Records) with a corresponding show at Kung Fu Necktie. Joining in on the festivities are the possessing, guitar-blazing garage-punk of Dark Web and the raw ominous ferocity of metal quartet Body Spray. The duo of Al Creedon (I IM EYE MY, ex-Bleeding Rainbow) & Ricardo Lagomasino (Lithuania/Many Arms), a.k.a. Birth Worms, unearth an effects-laden, electro-percussive attack to kick things off. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $13, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Angelina" - Brandon Can't Dance

On his latest single, “Angelina,” Brandon Ayres, a.k.a. Brandon Can’t Dance, constructs a gloomy, melodic, lo-fi snapshot of shut-in depression. The narrative rides the simplicity of a rough acoustic guitar riff, before breaking out of its confines with the spiking surge of electric. The song is featured on the forthcoming album, Graveyard of Good Times, that will be released on January 13 via Lucky Number Music.
