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
better.
"Weird Hot squeeze dark and groovy disco ribbons out of shameful
little shards of desire."
PHILADELPHIA WEEKLY
El Malito & The 33rd Century - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
El Malito & The 33rd Century
el malito is, malito and MG, a molecule titillating musical duo laced with punk attitude that uses latin rhythms, 808s, and sounds from deep within our universe.

They create high energy pop songs with catchy hooks about navigating this tough world, biggin’ up the freaks, the weirdos, and all the outcasts.
They empower the powerless, enliven the lifeless. Live they are joined by extraordinaire dancers and eye healthy visuals.
The sound and look of the 33rd century is el malito.
I Think Like Midnight - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
I Think Like Midnight
I Think Like Midnight is an instrumental rock band formed by longtime devotees of the lost art of the succinct rock instrumental. Begun as a recording project, guitarist/songwriter Andrew Chalfen (The Trolleyvox, The Wishniaks, Gimme) and drummer Dean Clean Sabatino (The Dead Milkmen, Baby Flamehead) were so pleased with the results that they decided to release the material and put together a full band, recruiting bassist Josh Newman (American Altitude, The Silver Ages, Heyward Howkins Band) and keyboardist Joe Genaro (The Dead Milkmen, Butterfly Joe, Low Budgets).

ITLM’s debut “Warm Seclusion Structure” (a term coined by the National Weather Service) was released in December 2014, surprisingly winning the praise of their instrumental heroes Pell Mell. The band has since honed their live sound, focusing on new material with forays into songwriting collaboration. The band recorded their new album over 2016-17 at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia with engineer Brian McTear (The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Waxahatchee, Sharon Van Etten) with additional recording by Chalfen at Trolleyvox Recording, with mixing by McTear and young upstart engineering genius Brendan Monahan.

"This Land Is Your Mind," is robust, expansive, deeply groovy, and definitely road-trip worthy. Highlights include the opener “Daychord,” a big sky driving opus with exultant melodic and sparkling nods to popsters like The Chills, the Krautrock-inflected Surf coolness of “Tuned Mass Damper,” and the epic closer “Miner Pocket Draft Gear,” which deftly mines both Television-like meters and pastoral psychedelic space rock. Lovers of the above-mentioned bands, as well as Yo La Tengo, Spoon, Luna, and The Sea and Cake will feel right at home. Their new 4-song “Kompromat EP” was released in late 2018 on Wilbur Records.
