>>> Westwax is a new West Philly DJ collective comprised of Andrew Gaspar, Apt One, Honkey Lips, JJC, Kenny Raw, Kyle Miller, Operant 77, Propagander, Sebastian Petsu, Stepchild, and Whyte Hott. What do all these dudes have in common? They all live in West Philly, they all have moustaches (ok, that is not true, but it should be) and they all like to party. Together, they kick it all off tonight with Nobody’s Dirty Business at The Preston. Grab more info at their MySpace page.
>>> Menomena and The Roots are both way sold out, but Do Make Say Think at First Unitarian Church is not. And lucky for you. These crusty Canadians make with the instrumental rock that TAKES YOU PLACES.
>>> As mentioned below, Making Time at Pure with The Presets and Datarock.
>>> Displaced Roots fans, are you still whining? Sweat not: Cosmo Baker and Dirty South Joe spin the Roots afterparty at Fluid.
>>> Lance Weiler’s “Cursed: The Head Trauma Music Project” checks in at International House, with members of Espers, Bardo Pond, Bitter Bitter Weeks and more. This looks spooooooooky!
>>> Jason Killinger’s “Harsh Mellow” night is back after a too-long hiatus. A gangup of bands and records that all meld psych-rock with long, hard jams (think Sabbath as well as James Gang), this has always been a great time. This edition includes Green Milk From The Planet Orange from Japan and Killinger’s own band, Birds Of Maya. At Johnny Brenda’s.
>>> DJ Deejay’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Circus at The M Room! Yow! Special guests: The Rock ‘N’ Roll Overs.
>>> PIMA Group debuts a new dance/musical performance, “What A Quaint Scene We Were That Night” throughout the weekend.
>>> FOOLING DAY! Get somebody good. And then tell us about it.
