Consider Singles Club your musical matchmaker. I do hope you’ll give all these ready to mingle bachelors and bachelorettes your ear as you listen to some new favorite tunes.

This Sunday, February 14th couples everywhere will be scrambling to find the words to explain the deep admiration they have for their S.O. Although the local convenience store is an easy (TOO EASY) fix for your V-Day needs, there are only so many love haiku greeting cards you can buy before the words faintly printed on your last-minute note grow stale.
Make this 14th the one your #1 Homie deserves with one (or all) of these 10 Hip-Hop Valentines!
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we have a new video of the week from Reed Streets for the song, “First Day of My Life,” originally by Bright Eyes. The remix is super fun and lovey dovey and the video animation is totes adorbs.
Your single, sassy, self will more than likely be subjected to songs of romance this coming weekend. Valentine’s is fun for couples, but you don’t have to feel compelled to listen to what couples are listening to. Here is my pick of anti-hearts/kisses for rocking out.
TLC – No Scrubs
Ain’t nobody got time for scrubs.
Sam Smith – I’m Not The Only One
During the Sam Smith Show, he expressed his happiness best when he thanked the man who broke his heart for all the Grammys he won.
Similarly to the Philly Zombie Prom, Monster Ball attendees are encouraged to come as their favorite monster from the deepest corners of their imagination, from a flesh-and-blood Frankenstein to the hellish demon of their own creation, all are welcome and encouraged!
As we start the week leading up to Valentine’s Day I thought I’d serve up an l-word themed playlist without being too sentimental (at least I’ll try not to be). It will serve as a love letter to some of the songs that I’ve fallen in love with over the past couple years. Some of the songs are well-known, some are obscure, some are old and some are new, but all have been listened to countless times.
I’ll kick things off with a new one from Father John Misty‘s forthcoming album I Love You, Honeybear. A true departure from ...
Tuesday night with Sam Smith caused utter chaos around the Liacouras Center at Temple University‘s campus as fans of all ages fought their way in out of the cold. Once inside and cozied up, the show began with a huge curtain with a mirrored picture of the night’s most popular crooner.
Smith began singing “Life Support” from his latest album In The Lonely Hour before the curtain dropped to the floor, leaving the audience wondering for a moment where his otherworldly voice could be coming from. He was raised high up in the middle of the stage ...
We were treated to a number of Valentine’s Day releases this year, but one that got lost in yesterday’s shuffle was Peking Duk‘s “High.” The Australian production duo’s latest track is a bright, high-energy number that strangely reminds us of an electro-pop Dandy Warhols. Part of that is thanks to Nicole Millar, whose vocals are front and center in this one. Give “High” a listen below.
Here’s one for the cynics, the heartbroken, or just the Really-Over-Valentine’s-Day crowd. New York’s soulful ATG favorites Wet and remix mastermind Branchez make a good couple, but not for long, if this track has anything to say about it. Branchez’ production underscoring Kelly Zutrau’s atmospheric vocals make this remix a clean, sharp antidote for all the twee filling the airwaves every February 14th. Give the remix a listen below.
STREAM: Wet – “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl (Branchez Remix)”
This weekend’s plans are all about love and peace. You’ll be seeing some soul-felt bands, eating some great food, and supporting the local community. But most importantly, you’ll be spending your time with the people you care about. So Happy Valentine’s Day from Rock On Philly!

Either way, we’ve come up with fifteen tracks to soundtrack this special holiday for you lovebirds and loners. Head on after the jump for some tunes from Fyfe Dangerfield, Daft Punk, alt-J, Chris Malinchak and more.
Mystery artist Jr. Hi returns with a seductive jam this Valentine’s Day. “Trillion Girls” features another high-profile guest spot with Childish Gambino (you might remember his debut track “Secrets” enlisted the help of The Weeknd). When paired with Jr. Hi’s smooth vocals and dark but sultry production, it all makes for a stunning sophomore release. Download a free copy of “Trillion Girls” below.

Melody Kulesza and her husband Dan Pepper will be spending their first Valentine’s Day together as a married couple since tying the knot in front of millions of viewers at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Kulesza and Pepper were one of 34 couples who said their “I Do’s” to the tune of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” in an epic performance that featured Mary Lambert, Queen Latifah, and Madonna.
Rock On Philly got the chance to talk to Melody about the experience in an exclusive interview- just in time for Valentine’s Day! We even have some behind- the- scenes video ...
Chances are, if you and your friends regularly hit the hot spots in Center City for a few brews to catch up, you’ve noticed That Group. You know, the one that continues erupting in laughter every five minutes, so excited, so symmetrical, split with three guys and three girls, you wonder how on earth a group outing of that size hits it off so well.
Well, what you might be observing could actually be the result of Grouper’s excellent social pairing skills! Grouper, the online-to-IRL social club sweeping America’s major cities, hit Philly in 2012 and has seen ...
