It's A King Thing
From the Haddons, the Hills and the Heights of suburban New Jersey, comes It’s a King Thing. Their songs can beat up your band’s songs.

It’s a King Thing was once called the friendliest band in the world. They were also called one of the front runners in the upcoming boom of Philly music. They’ve shared the stage with the Lemonheads twice, Weston twice, Cloud Nothings and many other fantastic bands.

Brian Mietz (30) sings and plays guitar. Steve Poponi (35) and John Masino (33) (formerly of Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start) play drums and guitar. Mike Maier (35) plays bass and Tom Ryan (29) plays keys and guitar.

RIYL: Weezer, The Lemonheads, Nada Surf, Ben Kweller, Superdrag, The Shins, Guided By Voices

WPW (stands for Windsor Park Walkers, who in turn stand for not much else). I don't know how I got home last night.
Clamfight - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Clamfight consists of Andy Martin on drums and vocals, Sean McKee on lead guitar, Joel Harris on rhythm guitar, and Louis Koble on bass. Self described as "music for fat dudes and the buxotic women who love them," Clamfight plays a blend of sludge, thrash, and doom that, says Doommantia, "has more than enough groove to break down walls." Hailing from Westmont, New Jersey, the members of Clamfight are childhood friends who have been playing together in various bands since 1997. Clamfight has existed since 2002 and has been playing live throughout the Philadelphia area since 2005. Clamfight has had the honor of sharing the stage with some great local acts including Wizard Eye, Pale Divine, Bitchslicer, Hellblock Six, Maegashira, Rukut, A Day of Pigs, Wally, as well as some more well known national acts including Kings Destroy, Solace, Jucifer, and Iron Man. Their first album, Volume I, was self released in August 2010 and has received favorable press from Doommantia and The Obelisk among others, and was named the #7 album of the year from The Obelisk's top 20 list. It was recorded by Steve Poponi at Gradwell House Recording in Haddon Heights, NJ. Clamfight returned to Gradwell House to again work with the multi-talented Poponi on the follow up, entitled "I Versus the Glacier," which will be available January 22, 2013 exclusively through The Maple Forum
