Basketball Shorts Are A Slam Dunk

Basketball Shorts was born out of a passion for rocking hard and drinking lots of Lone Star.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call the makings of a true Austin party band.
Basketball Shorts come alive on stage with head-banging anthems designed for having a sweaty ball. Inspired by everything from hard partying to pizza to Forrest Gump, the trio’s songs are peppered with quips, adding to those good time party vibes.
A band that doesn’t take themselves too seriously? That’s a band you can really get down with.

If you love rocking hard and Lone Star, then check out Basketball Shorts’ saccharine new single “Candy Boys” via Austin label, Fleeting Youth Records. - Gillian Driscoll

Red Bull Sound Select w/Spank Rock, Prowler & Mumblr at Underground Arts July 19

Spank Rock headlines a trio of local acts for the Red Bull Sound Select showcase curated by Jump Philly. The temperature will be on the rise tonight as the sensual, steamy, pulse-grinding groove is all but assured to make things hot and heavy with a lyrical flow that isn’t afraid to offer direct observations and raunchy intentions that are guaranteed to make those within the confines of Underground Arts blush, giggle and possibly get a bit horny. The moodily melodic pop-punk of Mumblr will also grace the stage with its varying levels of intensity, appropriately fuzzing out while applicably providing an air of disorder. The unfiltered psych-boogie experiment of Prowler appropriately performing underground will expand one’s expectations and wet the appetite for an evening that dares to boldly tear down boundaries. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $3 (w/RSVP, $10 w/o), 21+ - Michael Colavita

Adult Swim [Burlesque] w/Schoolly D at PhilaMOCA July 19

Liberty Rose, Fem Appeal, Hayley Jane, and a bunch of other lovely ladies return to PhilaMOCA tonight for another bizarre but enticing edition of the Television Burlesque Art Show. And for this performance, they’ll be doing it to an Adult Swim theme, which should prove to be weirdly entertaining even if you aren’t a fan of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Robot Chicken, Tom Goes to the Mayor, and other after-hour segments. On top of it all, there will be a special musical performance by the Godfather of Gangsta Rap and man behind the Aqua Team Hunger Force theme song, Schoolly D. It’s a rare occasion to catch the man who penned songs like “Gangster Boogie” and “King of New York” loooooong before it was a common occurrence by the likes of Ice-T, N.W.A., Snoop Dogg, and a whole generation of others, especially in such a smaller scale venue. And that’s all the more reason to attend this evening of fun-filled debauchery. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 3:30pm, $20 Door/$25 VIP, 18+ - Bill McThrill

Ian Levy Pieces Togehter a Mosaic

It’s easy for lyrical MCs to go over the top with their garrulous polemics.  NYC’s Ian Levy eschews this tendency and keeps his introspective musings engaging.  In the track “Complex,” he tackles the dichotomy between days teaching the youth in Harlem versus evenings “surrounded by accountants on a thousand dollar carpet; it’s a shark pit scarfing on my conscience, kid.”  Like a painter struggling to choose the right colors to bring a canvas to life, Levy seems to labor over his verses, rhyme patterns, and content to deliver tracks that will stand out in the echoing alleys of a city rife with rhymers.  In the Mosaic EP, available free on his bandcamp page, he examines his potential with such sharp focus that his fans are compelled to investigate with equal fervor. -Broke MC

Recommended Show: Loser Cruiser at 1.21 Gigawatts Festival

Slacker meets surf rock on Loser Cruiser's first single, "Girls Night".  The song features our favorite jangle-chorus effected guitar mastered by bands like Total Slacker and Diiv, something us Brooklynites have been mostly associating with dark bedroom pop vibes.  Yet the track faithfully follows a Beach Boys, surf-rock song structure; a welcome addition to the toned down slacker rock aesthetic.  Naturally, the only other release by the band is a cover of The Turtles' Classic, "Happy Together."  Sometimes I forget that New York has always been planted on the beach, a trip that I'm sure you haven't made enough times this summer (I know I haven't).  Hit up Loser Cruiser at the third day of the 1.21 Gigawatts Festival tomorrow 1:45 PM.  -Jake Saunders

Recommended Show: Twin Vision at Holy Mountain, July 23rd

 Twin Vision sounds like a modest blend of The Strokes and The White Stripes. Being that Twin Vision was only formed last year, we speculate whether the band has something new to incorporate into the ever transforming sound of garage rock. Labeled as "manic-psych," this band is definitely one to keep an eye on as they evolve their aesthetic. After listening to their two albums on band camp, the diversity in style is already evident.  Their first release in particular, Three Songs to Tickle Your Fantasy, but also their recent release called, Ice Cream, a nonstop powerhouse of anthemic blues to grunge rock songs. Catch their raucous show on July 23rd at Holy Mountain featuring Black Pussy and stream Ice Cream below. -Rebecca Blandon
