FYF 2013: Glasser Live Review

Considering the show-stopping arrangements Cameron Mesirow, aka Glasser, has pulled off at previous festivals in recent years, it came as bit of a surprise that for her Sunday evening set she stripped her electronic pop down to the bare essentials. Comprised of little more than some samplers and a drummer/percussionist, her minimalist set up demanded she make up the difference. Luckily, with her powerful voice and charismatic presence, not mention infectious grooves, she kept the tent dancing almost the entire time. Check out the new single, "Shape," released this week off Glasser's upcoming album.  - Chris Karman

New Track & Music Video: "Modern Living" - Work Drugs

Work Drugs just posted a new track, "Modern Living," and their signature found footage music video. It also came with a quote from Tom Wolfe (below). They'll be performing their first all-ages show on Friday, September 27 at the First Unitarian Church.

"I think every living moment of a human being's life, unless the person is starving or in immediate danger of death in some other way, is controlled by a concern for status."


Modern Pantheist The Spiral Electric Mamri Play Neck of the Woods TONIGHT

In a sudden thrust of great psych rock shows taking over the San Francisco Bay Area recently, Neck of the Woods will be showcasing three bands that will surely impress. Headlining the show while currently on tour, Modern Pantheist who possess a classic psychedelic and the oh-so-notable synths and lo-fi sound. Their track, "Lust For Hearts" even brings a nice guitar addition with tons of wah effects. 

Adding on to the psych bill, Spiral Electric who'll be bringing a much more classic rock sound to the line-up, featuring Led Zeppelin-reminiscent guitar riffs, and an overall harder sound. Their song, "Slow Burn" is a long instrumental that will get you feeling epic and pumped. Mamri, a new band that was recently formed from the two separate bands Psychic Jiu Jitsu and The Electric Magpie, have yet to release anything online and are slowly starting their debut playing live shows. They do, however, come from a background of fun choruses, a focus on musical aesthetics, and a knack for love of tea.

Make sure you make it out to the show! You won't regret it! -Victor Casillas Valle

R5’s Free Concert Series w/Pissed Jeans at Morgan’s Pier Aug. 28

Matt Korvette’s stage presence is probably the best thing about a Pissed Jeans show. He’ll scream in your face, kick you in the head, and wear your shoes that fell off during a stage dive. His antics may be a bit over the top to some, but to Pissed Jeans fans it’s a haven. The band’s recent LP Honeys came out in February of this year - full of loud instrumental explosions and noisy tidal waves of aggression. Tonight at Morgan’s Pier as part of R5’s free concert series, Pissed Jeans will be demonstrating why they are the most badass act to call Philly and Sub Pop home. Morgan’s Pier, 221 N. Columbus Blvd., 9:30, Free, 21+ - Rachel Barrish
