Mannequin Pussy - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Mannequin Pussy
Originally begun as a duo between childhood friends, Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul, Mannequin Pussy expanded to a three-piece for their debut album, GP. Following a move to Philadelphia, the band has once again grown in numbers and strength. With the addition of Kaleen Reading on drums and Colins Regisford on bass, Mannequin Pussy are now a quartet for their sophomore full-length, Romantic. Once again a Mannequin Pussy full-length is a perfect example of "all killer, no filler" as Romantic clocks in at less than 20 minutes. And much like GP, Romantic shifts seamlessly back and forth between pop and punk rock. But, the band has refined their songwriting with Romantic. The pop hooks are bigger and sharper. The punk rock numbers are filled with even more fury. Romantic is the sound of a band hitting its stride.
Abi Reimold - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Abi Reimold
Abi Reimold of Philadelphia writes dynamic, cathartic songs that are darkly colorful. Rough around the edges in a way that is more honest than careless, Reimold's music has a distinctly human quality with songwriting that builds tension using dissonance both harmonically and lyrically. Reimold's voice rides a range of octaves and emotions, exploring dark inner worlds by pairing starkly vivid lyrics with contoured melodies. Reimold weaves the riffs and grit of modern rock with thoughtful phrases and poetry that are firmly rooted the introspective folk tradition. Reimold's debut full-length Wriggling was released January 26th on Sad Cactus Records.
King Azaz - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
King Azaz
An emotional response to the evolution of the determined connection. Loud songs by two kind of quiet queers. Eternal anger//Eternal sadness.
