Full Bush - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Full Bush
FULL BUSH’s wild and raucous heavy-punk sound careens and caterwauls - their raw and siren wails provide a sense of catharsis, bringing you back to your first metal, post-rock/punk, and pounding no-wave experience.

Also, they're really fucking fun to watch live.

Bassist, Cassie O'Leary, put out a call on a local feminist group for people who wanted to play together. Adesola (drummer) and Kate (lead singer and rhythm guitarist) answered the call and met up at Cassie's home. They drank a lot of beer, talked about friendship, being a woman in Philadelphia, and jammed in her attic. Adesola met Jayne Rutter (lead guitarist/back up vocals) at a restaurant they both worked at in south Philadelphia where they bonded over their similar musical tastes. Shortly after, Jayne was brought into the crew and took the band to a new level of creativity and depth. Since then, Full bush has opened for Ron Gallo and toured with activist and punk legend Alice Bag. Their self titled album was recorded by Dave Downham at The Gradwell House in Haddonfield, NJ and dropped on August 15th, 2018.
"Full Bush reveal themselves as the rare kind of band that defies any expectation. Their songs unfold like stories from the wittiest person you know, so spontaneous they feel improvised but so seamlessly constructed you’d think they were rehearsed for years. And like a great story, once you hear the beginning, you can’t stop listening until you hear the payoff." - The Key
Resilient - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Resilient
A femme-driven Philly band was born completely by accident out of the ashes of several other projects after a series of life-altering events. The members would eventually call themselves Resilient.
The array of influences within this band is so wide; it could quite possibly transcend the equatorial diameter most likely more than once. While they refuse to allow themselves to be defined by any one style, there is an apparent affinity for grunge, punk, and prog-pop styles in their multi-layered musical arrangements.
Resilient has not just been a band. It’s been a place of truth, hidden strength, artistic euphoria, and a testament to the fact that music has ultimately propelled and empowered each member to overcome nearly anything among the spectrum of life’s challenges.
Corey Flood - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Corey Flood
Sometimes in a “right place, right time” sort of way, what could be a misstep ends up a saving grace. Such is the case for Philadelphia’s new dark-pop quartet Corey Flood. While Ivy Gray-Klein (bass/vocals) never really meant to be a lead singer (though she’s already known for playing bass in Littler), a last-minute lineup change before the band’s first gig pushed her in front of the mic. And after that, things fell into place. With Noah Jacobson-Carroll and Em Boltz on guitar and Juliette Rando on drums, Corey Flood was set.

The self-proclaimed “despondent rockers” keep it short and sweet on Wish You Hadn’t, their debut EP from Brooklyn’s Fire Talk Records. The four songs simmer with a quiet fury, Gray-Klein’s hushed vocals floating above the metronomic drums and minimal, atmospheric guitar. Corey Flood takes influences like Helium and early Liz Phair and pushes them in a gloomier, more post-punk direction. “There’s a horse head / in my bed,” Gray-Klein almost whispers on the last track, “Causeway.” “It’s so hard / to be your friend.” It’s this kind of disappointment that permeates the EP—but it seems almost cathartic, as though the brutal honesty will lead to a light at the end of the tunnel.
