Catfite / Kill Lincoln / Abraskadabra / The Best Of The Worst – Ukie Club – Philadelphia, PA – 10/24/22

In 2019 Catbite released their self-titled debut record which garnered much attention in the ska community and beyond. Then in 2021, when COVID restrictions started to ease, Catbite did something that started as a joke, but then became a reality. They re-released their self-titled album as Catlite: A Yee​-​Haw Version Of Catbite S​/​T. It was… Read More Catfite / Kill Lincoln / Abraskadabra / The Best Of The Worst – Ukie Club – Philadelphia, PA – 10/24/22

The Gaslight Anthem – The Met – Philadelphia, PA – 10/7/22

When The Gaslight Anthem walked off the Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, NJ four years ago, which concluded their 10 Year Anniversary tour of the ’59 Sound, it was figured that this was their final bow until maybe a 20 Year Anniversary. Nothing was certain and nothing was known, but having to wait… Read More The Gaslight Anthem – The Met – Philadelphia, PA – 10/7/22

Rx Bandits / Nova Charisma – Union Transfer – Philadelphia, PA – 6/25/22

It’s been about six years since the Rx Bandits have done any sort of touring.  Prior to that, they seemed fairly active for the most part, but the six year gap had fans wondering if their beloved band would make a return.  I’d be first to admit I thought they were done, which would be… Read More Rx Bandits / Nova Charisma – Union Transfer – Philadelphia, PA – 6/25/22

The Color Fred / Sleep Cycles – Milkboy – Philadelphia, PA – 2/19/22

Opening the show was Familiar Things, but due to arrival, I was only able to catch the last few songs, but being local to the Philadelphia area, I am sure I will see them on another show. Following Familiar Things was the newest band from Philadelphia, Sleep Cycles. Featuring members of Promise of Redemption, An… Read More The Color Fred / Sleep Cycles – Milkboy – Philadelphia, PA – 2/19/22

Ace Enders / Pronoun / Carly Cosgrove – The Foundry – Philadelphia, PA – 7/24/21

With concerts coming back in full force, not many of them are being put on inside out of caution. However, the first show back inside wasn’t a loud shoulder to shoulder mosh pit show, but a quite acoustic one. Acoustic shows usually are just as exciting as a full band show because you hear your… Read More Ace Enders / Pronoun / Carly Cosgrove – The Foundry – Philadelphia, PA – 7/24/21

I Am The Avalanche / MakeWar – Milkboy – Philadelphia, PA – 12/9/18

It’s very rare when I Am The Avalanche plays shows, even rarer is when the original lineup plays the show, but that is what happened over a three day tour. Amityville, NY, Virginia Beach, VA, and Philadelphia, PA closed out 2018 with I Am The Avalanche shows that featured the original lineup. The Philadelphia date… Read More I Am The Avalanche / MakeWar – Milkboy – Philadelphia, PA – 12/9/18

The Early November / Have Mercy / Owel – Theatre Of Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA – 10/19/19

A band like The Early November needs no introduction.  For almost 20 years they have consistently put out superior music, to the point where with each release the listener thinks, how will they out do this album?  Somehow they do, and it can’t be said that they don’t challenge themselves when it comes to it. … Read More The Early November / Have Mercy / Owel – Theatre Of Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA – 10/19/19

Durand Jones & The Indications / Divino Nino – First Unitarian Church – Philadelphia, PA – 4/19/19

Once and awhile a great band comes along.  It isn’t just in the music or lyrics, but in the whole package.  From the recordings to the stage, each part of the band’s lifeline is magnificently executed.  As a music fan, as you get older, it gets harder and harder to find those bands that “click”… Read More Durand Jones & The Indications / Divino Nino – First Unitarian Church – Philadelphia, PA – 4/19/19
