Grace Vonderkuhn - Wilmington, DE - Egghunt Records

A 3-piece rock and roll band from Delaware.

"Singer-guitarist Grace Vonderkuhn has been making weird and wild rock music out of her home city of Wilmington for a hot minute, and 2018 is poised to be a breakout year for her.

Her latest full-length, Reveries, is [out] on EggHunt Records, and it’s already attracted attention from tastemakers at GoldFlakePaint (which premiered the undeniable rager “Worry” back in December), NPR Music (which recently included “Bad Habits” on their All Songs Considered podcast) and The Grey Estates (which just yesterday unleashed the cosmic “Cellophane” into the world).

So, what’s different this time around that Vonderkuhn is getting all this love? The record collects ten of the best songs she’s ever written, for one thing. Her style has a newfound focus as well, moving from the trippy fringey home-recorded psych that marked her earliest jams (though, to be fair, Reveries is still plenty trippy) and into a hard-edged, hard-hitting take on punky fuzz rock (or fuzzy punk rock, if you prefer). And her lyrics are like elliptical puzzles; filled with detailed, vivid imagery about solitude, happiness, life, and death; 'there is no pain when you’re wrapped in cellophane' is a macabre af hook that gives me serious Twin Peaks vibes. At the same time, her words are delivered in quizzical puzzles that remain so even after weeks of unpacking." - John Vettese, The Key
Left & Right (Last Show) - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Left & Right (Last Show)
Left & Right have been playing their brand of melodic, guitar-driven punk since 2009. They formed while driving buses for the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA, and moved to Philly in 2013 where they released two records and toured extensively. This will be their last show.
No Thank You - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
No Thank You
No Thank You is the songwriting project of Philadelphia‘s Kaytee Della-Monica, who is supported by bandmates Nick Holdorf and Evan Bernard.

"[You'll find] shimmery guitars and emotive lyrics while navigating the terrain between tenderness and aggression." - Culture Creature
