Mt. Vengeance
"...A fun-as-hell rock trio with a heavy side. Mt. Vengeance is basically blue-collar Philly rock royalty, with members whose résumés include Valsalva, Uptown Bones, Latimer, Ashtabula and Electric Love Muffin." - Patrick Rapa - Philadelphia Magazine
"...if you love the timeless indie rock anthems of The Thermals and their brethren but wish Portland wasn’t so very far away, fear not — there’s never been a shortage of that here in Philly, and new trio Mt. Vengeance nails the vibe remarkably powerfully." - John Vettese - The Key, WXPN

Foxy Contin
Trading on the classic sounds of seventies first-wave punk and sixties garage rack, Foxycontin will be making its first return to the Philadelphia stage in almost a decade. The band, formed in 2004, features members of Electric Love Muffin, Khrissy, The Yarrows, and Howling Fantods.
Poppy - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

“They are all still living. Yay!” might be the best band bio I’ve read this week. Poppy has a history in the Philly rock scene dating back nearly 25 years, and the three-song Hand In The Lion’s Mouth EP appears to be their first official release in about eighteen years. It’s pure 90s awesomeness — guitars that are big and loud, vocals that soar with confident, lyrics about self-empowerment and loving your city. Hell, they fit all five syllables of “Philadelphia” in a lyric without it sounding tremendously awkward, no easy feat by any means. The set was recorded by Brian McTear at Miner Street, the band consists of Brian Campbell, Craig Heim, and Kate Campbell, and though I was not hip to them the first time around, it’s good to have them back."
