Bourbon & Branch, Philadelphia’s newest venue space, was taken over on Saturday night by the very first Styrofoam Drone Showcase. Burnt Ones and Raw McCartney came into town from San Francisco and Indianapolis respectively, while Shape Breaker and Jackie Paper provided the hometown entertainment. Burnt Ones are on the road for their upcoming LP on Castle Face Records, an album that should be available for mail order any day now.

Take a look below for a video apiece from each band that played on Saturday. If that’s not enough, you can find more videos from the show right here (keep checking back!)

Shape Breaker – “Spellbound”


Shape Breaker closed their set with the track from their recent split 7″ on Gary Records, “Spellbound.” Psychedelic and punk vibes are prominent in their sound, more of which you can listen to right here.

Raw McCartney – “Born to Ride”


“Born to Ride” is a track from Raw McCartney’s recent Introducing cassette on Chicago’s Tripp Tapes. It’s loaded with the most fuzz as these guys stop at nothing to melt your face off.

Jackie Paper


Jackie Paper wasted no time with their take on folk-inspired psych rock. Fluttery flutes and grainy psych washes dominated their set, building their songs up into a monumental affair.

Burnt Ones


Burnt Ones brought their own synth-driven stoner pop, showcasing a bit from their upcoming LP on Castle Face titled Gift. It’s officially released on March 25th by the label, so keep your eyes peeled for that in the Castle Face Records store.

WHO?: BURNT ONES, RAW McCARTNEY, JACKIE PAPER and SHAPE BREAKER
WHERE?: Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., Philadelphia, PA
WHEN?: March 22nd, 2014

Coming on March 22nd, the brand new Philadelphia venue BOURBON & BRANCH will be taken over with the first Styrofoam Drone Showcase. Bourbon & Branch is nearly ready to open for business, and once it is, it will become one of Philadelphia’s newest venues. Located in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of the city, the venue features a 16 foot-wide stage, not to mention a full bar/restaurant with a heaping menu of food and drink.

While all this is going down, BURNT ONES, the San Francisco-based glam pop trio, are readying their new LP for Castle Face Records. They hooked up with Indianapolis-based fuzz-heaters RAW McCARTNEY for a tour, who just released a new cassette on Tripp Tapes (some highly recommended listening). Joining them in Philly for the night will be SHAPE BREAKER and JACKIE PAPER, two bands who are based in the city limits of Philadelphia. Continuing the trend of new releases, Shape Breaker just set free their vinyl debut on a split 7″ from Chicago label Gary Records. Jackie Paper is a 5-piece band with flutes and synth, joining the stage with their shadowy take on psych rock.

Woodsman, Lantern, School Girl Live in Philadelphia (02/07/14)

Currently based in Brooklyn, Denver-born psych crew WOODSMAN just dropped their third studio album on Fire Talk Records (more on that later). Their current tour just concluded over the past weekend with their record release show in New York City. The night before they made a stop in Philadelphia, bringing their experimental psych rock to Kung Fu Necktie on a Friday night. Philly-based band SCHOOL GIRL kicked things off. They specialize in a form of primitive protopunk, playing their second show to date. Grungy punk n’ roll trio LANTERN followed up, playing some tracks from their 2013 debut and a few other choice nuggets. It was their first show in awhile but they were right on point, evidenced by these videos after the jump: Continue reading “Woodsman, Lantern, School Girl Live in Philadelphia (02/07/14)”

PURLING HISS Record Release Show Live in Philadelphia (04/05/13)

Plenty of shows and events took place in the city of Philadelphia this past Friday night, but anybody who ended up at the sold out Record Release show of PURLING HISS at Johnny Brenda’s knew they made the best of their night. Water On Mars was released by Drag City Records on March 19th, which only meant that this celebration for the record was long overdue. Joining Purling Hiss on the stage for the night were hometown heroes SPACIN’ along with the Chicago-based AXIS:SOVA (who just released a new 7″ on Philly-based label Richie Records), who together set us up to endure one hell of a damaging performance.

TRUST Live in Philadelphia (10/24/12)

Last night was the first time that TRUST ever visited Philadelphia. The Toronto-based electronic outfit brought us all a sexy-good time at the North Star Bar, headlining a bill comprised of Void Vision, the Downtown Club and DJ Passable Plastic, who all happen to hail from Philly. The show marked the beginning of their current string of North American shows, where they had just wrapped up a large portion of their Fall 2012 tour over in Europe. The trio on stage played a generous portion of their twisted synth-pop debut TRST from Arts & Crafts, even slipping in a couple brand new tracks that have yet to have a home. Robert Alfons led the way in his dark, brooding tone for the duration of the show, often times sounding right on point with what you hear in their recorded material. Perhaps once this current tour of theirs is over, we’ll start hearing more about these new songs they played last night. Continue reading “TRUST Live in Philadelphia (10/24/12)”

Cold Showers, Cousins Live in Philadelphia (10/01/12)

COLD SHOWERS and COUSINS each came a long way to play for us in Philadelphia last night. Cold Showers hail from out west in Los Angeles, while Cousins come all the way from Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada. Also joining them was Coke Weed from Bar Harbor, Maine and (((Taco))) from no other than Philadelphia. Together this line up destroyed eardrums for the mere fifteen people upstairs at Kung Fu Necktie, leaving me with no other question than where the hell were you last night? Right now Cold Showers are in the process of touring for their upcoming debut LP on Dais Records, Love and Regret, which officially drops on October 9th. They played for us a generous portion of the album, which also includes some tracks from older Cold Showers singles we’ve been raving about for the past year. As for Cousins, the friendly duo ripped through a handful of tracks from their album “The Palm at the End of the Mind,” who are probably responsible for the majority of my hearing loss as I type this passage. Check these videos below and see just how the show played out. Continue reading “Cold Showers, Cousins Live in Philadelphia (10/01/12)”
