Stinking Lizaveta (Record Release)
"The Philadelphia power trio Stinking Lizaveta...is celebrating the release of an intense new record, "Sacrifice and Bliss." The band, which takes its name from a mute character in Dostoyeveky's "The Brothers Karamazov," plays heavy instrumental rock that meshes complicated and precise prog-rock passages, gloomy riffs in the Black Sabbath vein, and occasional free-jazz blowouts. Led by the melodic guitar playing of Yanni Papadopoulos and backed by a frenetic rhythm section made up of Papadopoulos's brother Alexi, on bass, and the drumer Cheshire Agusta, the group has been a linchpin in the vibrant West Philly underground since its founding, fifteen years ago. They are uncompromising in the best sense of the word." - The New Yorker
Sheena & Thee Nosebleeds - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Sheena & Thee Nosebleeds
"Led by veteran riff-wrangler Kermit Lyman, West Philly thrashy power trio Thee Nosebleeds teamed up with vocalist Sheena Powell on Mischief Night of 2014, and the resulting team is dynamic. Almost exactly a year ago, Sheena and Thee Nosebleeds released their debut EP Electric Church (listen below) and they're getting ready to follow it up with a full-length, boldly titled The Revolution Will Be Amplified.
If you're new to the band, Electric Church is a great way to get primed for Revolution – Lyman's Motörhead-indebted riffing blazes out the speakers while Powell's voice positively soars, propelled by the rhythm section of Kevin Cooper on bass and Chris Macklin on drums. The band sees it as a contrast between the angelic and the demonic, and I totally get that – but it's also fist-flying rock and roll in the truest sense."

"Heavy riff-spewing, groove-laden, psychedelically inclined, occasionally laid back, mostly loud, wah-wah-drenched, stoner rock-gone-metal-and back.... est. 2006, Philadelphia, PA. The Company Corvette's got its third album in the works.... got new tunes... wanna race?"
