Beretta76 - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
"Nearly seven years in, and it shows: Philly combo Beretta 76 are battleship–tight and really hitting their stride right now as they merge power–pop, garage–punk and classic ’70s–style arena–sized hard rock into one whip–smart attack. Onstage singer–guitarist Camille Escobedo’s vocals, tough ’tude and allure might have you thinking of a threesome (artistically speaking, of course) between Pat Benatar, Joan Jett and Shirley Manson, while the rest of the band ably and often achieves their goal of making it ”blunt, unprissy, immediate, pissed–off, melodic and raw–rocking.” Bonus: They do a roaring cover of AC/DC’s ”Whole Lotta Rosie” that could probably wake Bon Scott from the dead."

The Original Sins - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
The Original Sins
John Terlesky, better known as Brother JT, founded garage pop outfit the Original Sins in 1987.
Based around the idea of combining the best aspects of 60's garage and '70's punk, the group soon got the attention of Bar/None Records founder Glenn Morrow who released the Sins' first single, "Just 14", followed by a debut LP, Big Soul, later that year, both to some critical acclaim. The four-piece went on to release 10 albums (including Peter Buck-produced Move), tour America & Europe, get MTV airplay, and generally raise a hammond organ-stoked din before calling it a day in 1998.
Since then 'reunions' have become more and more difficult due to the relocation of band members.
So, as of 2012, JT started playing as 'the Sins' with like-minded souls Jamie Mahon and Mike Kiker (of phila. psych blues experts St. James and the Apostles)--and on occasion with Sam Steinig and Scott Rodgers (formerly of Sins' contemporaries Mondo Topless). The faces may change, but the intent--getting folks to get off their asses and shake it--remains the same.
Weird Hot - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Weird Hot
weird hot is a band who plays only songs you already know. in addition
to being the only juke box your family ever needed, weird hot serves
to remind you that you have someone to cry at, shortly before you go
dancing. committed to fun, while never ignoring everything that's so
desperately ugly about Philadelphia and life in general, weird hot
loves sandinista by the clash, the white album by the beatles, david
live at the tower, pink floyd the wall, exile on main street, and
anything else that goes on for far too long yet seems to keep getting
"Weird Hot squeeze dark and groovy disco ribbons out of shameful
little shards of desire."
