St. James and The Apostles - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
St. James and The Apostles
3 cousins playing some apocalyptic gospel

"Philly garage rock trio St. James & The Apostles have a big sound for just three guys. You can attribute some of that to Mike Kiker on keyboards, who plays Ray Manzerek style, juggling both bass lines and higher-end lead parts. Certainly Jeff Castner’s thundering drums are another component, as well as frontman Jamie Mahon, whose voice bellows and guitar rips. ... They’re part Doors, part Supergrass, part spiritual." - John Vettese, WXPN's The Key
Gondola - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Gondola is a heavy acid-psych-rock trio with Rocky Rinaldi (guitar, vocals), Jordan Blumling (bass, vocals) and Tim Plunkett (Drums) from Philadelphia. Their sound is total sorcery. Snarling guitar soaring over sinister bass lines with lyrics conjured from the void, balanced with the attack, resonance and depth of the beat will leave you questioning this reality.
Over the past few years Gondola have shared the stage with the like-mindedness of Earthless, Dead Meadow, Bardo Pond, Flower Travelin Band, Loop & Nebula, to name a few. They have emerged with their first full-length record, a culmination of spells that cannot be reversed.
The Company Corvette - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
The Company Corvette
"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?"
