Yuck - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
YUCK! Eeew, I was like, "that is soo gross". Anybutt. I was like whatever. Butt then I saw the tour and it made me feel kinda tingly. It's like totally awesome!!! Like those girls are so cool and like that guy looks weird but then yer like omg he is like so hot. So the show was incredible but then I thought about my Dad cuz he liked killed somebody or himself. Dad always said he loved my step mom but he was never nice to her. Where am I? Since I was a teenager I always used to take out out the dogs and he always encouraged that and once we found a bunny and the next day I had a carrot and we saved it. Our german shepherd was so smart. I live by myself. My landlord said I don't have to pay rent this month but I was trying to write some good news to my therapist and I actually paid my landlord in full. But it's all thanks to the new YUCK album!
Alvvays - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Alvvays is a power pop super group comprised of Molly Rankin, Alec O’Hanley (formerly of Two Hours Traffic), Kerri Maclellan, Brian Murphy and Phil MacIsaac. They are set to release their debut album this fall. However, they have had no shortage of attention, from playing shows with the likes of Wintersleep to recording with Canadian legend, Chad VanGaalen, this dream team will leave the sweetest melodies stuck in your head for days
Hurry - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Philadelphia-based Hurry began less as a band and more as a man singing songs to himself alone in his darkened apartment. "Was a cat there, too?" Oh, yes--there was a cat there, too. Up until recently, Hurry consisted exclusively of that one man--Matthew Scottoline (of Philadelphia's Everyone Everywhere)--joined by a revolving group of friends for performances, but recording and writing and basically doing all of the work himself. "So nobody else should get any credit for that stuff?" No! Just Matt!

Hurry, which cites influences in Yo La Tengo, Teenage Fanclub, Weezer, and Dinosaur Jr, remained a solo project until now. Or, well, until recently. Scottoline finally secured bandmates in cousins Rob and Joe Decarolis, and they join him on Hurry's debut LP, Everything/Nothing. Stereogum calls the album's first single "Oh Whitney" "simple, direct, and catchy as hell." Uproxx Music called it "refreshing as a fuzzed-out drink in a Death to False Metal desert." XPN's The Key called it, "the first single from [Everything/Nothing]." And if you don't want to believe those guys, I don't know what to tell you.
