>>> It is a generally acknowledged fact in the indie rock world that any show with more than three bands on it is very likely to be unacceptable bullshit on every level. And yet, still, shows like this persist. Bands play them, people go to them, and the world keeps spinning. We know not why. BUT: Every so often, a scrappy little promoter with no budget except the expansive one in his brain will manage to stack a bill four high with ALL KILLER, NO FILLER talent that somehow falls together like a perfect live-action mixtape. This very rare occurrence will in fact happen tonight at Little Berlin, as four groups (two locals, two touring acts) will congeal in a perfect symbiosis of shitgaze, freakpop and more, and time-transport you to a place and an age where gatherings like this would happen effortlessly, with nothing but a quick trip to Kinko’s to broadcast their existence. Please now click on every one of these band names, because they are all sweating out a hungry, perfectly stoned vibe for you. White Fang. Nude Sunrise. Psychic Teens. True Gold. So let it be written. So shall it be.
>>> Does Councilman David Oh have some balls or what? Just a few weeks after unleashing one of the most get-off-my-lawn pieces of skateboard legislation we’ve seen in a long time, dude has the stones to throw this “Creative Class fundraiser” for himself. Does dude know who the key players in any “creative class” type situation in Philly are? David, we got this for you: THEY’RE OLD SKATEBOARDERS. Jesus, dude.
