After their 8th studio album release, properly entitled “8”, Incubus embarked on a 2017 World tour. Stopping in Camden, New Jersey alongside Jimmy Eat World and Tennessee’s own Judah and the Lion, the band proves their sound and intensity is as timeless as ever.

Judah and the Lion opened up the night with a high-energy performance including “Suit and Jacket”, a cover of The Killer’s Mr. Brightside, and a signature Judah cover of T-Pain’s “Booty Wurk”. Breaking out the auto-tune, the band was far from timid in simultaneously ...

1 Blisters
2 People Downstairs

Alec Tobin (guitar), Sam Unger (guitar), Mika Itkin-Weinstein (vocals), Max Schoenwetter (bass), Joe Billy III (drums).

Eminem & Rihanna Put On Monster Show

East Rutherford, NJ, technically isn’t that close to Philly, but it is the closest city that Eminem and Rihanna are hitting up on their Monster Tour, comprised of only 3 stops and 6 shows. As MetLife Stadium filled to the brim, Rihanna took the stage first as she started off “Numb,” followed moments later by Eminem strapped down Hannibal Lecter-style. He broke loose from restraints and the stadium exploded as he busted out his verses. The song turned into one huge mashup after another with “No Love” and “Run This Town” getting the ...

Blood Cultures – Mercury Child

It’s been four months since mysterious New Jersey based Blood Cultures released his (their?) debut track “Indian Summer.” For anyone who heard that sleek, booming production, it’s been four months of distinct anticipation. New song “Mercury Child” is along the same lines; it’s awash in synths humming and jumping over a heavy drumbeat and thick bassline. The vocals are dreamy and delicate, recalling Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo, or maybe Jai Paul.

It’s difficult to find things with the power to surprise anymore, let alone to stay secret for more than a few months. This is pure musicianship. It doesn’t get ...

New Jersey’s Titus Andronicus Is A Band Worth Getting Pumped About

titustopphoto

A week from tomorrow marks the release of Glen Rock, NJ’s Titus Andronicus’ third LP, Local Business. If you weren’t already sold on the stellarness of their first two (2008’s The Airing Of Grievances and 2010’s The Monitor), you still might be floored by the talent evident in this record. Fine, so Glen Rock is a solid two-hour drive northeast from Philly and practically sits on top of Yonkers, but they’re still our neighbors and fondly patronize our clubs and concert halls. IN FACT: the day that T.A. release this fantastic new LP, they’ll kick of their North American tour right here in Philadelphia.

PUNK IS BACK, they’re proclaiming. And how. The new one rips. It has that faint hint of a Dropkick Murphy kind of punk. The kind of punk that has soaring, bagpipe-friendly screamo choruses but wouldn’t dream of touching that deadly moniker emo. This record may be full of emotions, but would most definitely sweep that kind of shit under the rug and then plant their distortion pedals on top of it to be finessed by Vans. They cite Pulp and Neutral Milk Hotel as influencers of sound but could easily be found alongside: Constantines, Suuns, Foals, Hot Hot Heat, The Gaslight Anthem and The Replacements.

Here’s where you can GET A TICKET and where you can LISTEN TO THE RECORD.
