Cheerleader





Weekend Warrior, June 23 - 25

After a pressure cooker of a week, this weekend offers the opportunity to let out some steam, ease the tension, and let loose. This evening, Cheerleader heads the billing at Johnny Brenda’s. The quintet’s misty, refreshing melodies wash over you in a pleasantly cruising daydream. An inherent, rolling, rhythmic optimism sticks into the grooves, escaping the day-to-day grind. Tonight, they’ll be supported by Buffalo garage-rock trio Made Violent and the Brooks Brothers-led musical ensemble of Louds, whose bright, bubbling pop-rock naturally spills over on to the dance floor.

On Saturday at Johnny Brenda's, the quirky sing-along, carnival, musical troupe of OhBree brings out all the bells and whistles, celebrating their new record Burn Bridges, Burn Pies. Orchestrating their precision-oriented, multi-faceted soundscapes, Grandchildren helps in setting the musical scene, along with the engaging, energy-rich ebb & flow of Mumblr and the subdued pop of Glenn Matthews.

And whether you simply aren’t ready for the party to end or are an early riser ready for some Sunday day-drinking, get on over to The Barbary for the first annual Psychedelic Breakfast with psych-garage trio Residuels, local grindcore three-piece Die Choking, An Albatross, and much more. - Michael Colavita

Where the Locals Are Going in Philly This NYE

Nice job, Philly! What looked a little scarce with local representation for New Year’s Eve has filled out into a variety of sweet shows that will have folks spread out all over Philly. Kat Kat Phest, in its fourth and final year, will be auld lang syning away at Everybody Hits with Creepoid and The Spirit of the Beehive, two bands that definitely deserve more of that national/international love and attention in 2016. A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Captured Track’s EZTV, and Mercury Girls have the indie-pop goodness on lockdown over at Johnny Brenda’s. The dancin’ fools can be found with the Making Time crew at Union Transfer, West Philadelphia Orchestra, Johnny Showcase & The Mystics, and Ill Doots at Underground Arts, and LOUDS and Cheerleader, at Ortlieb’s this year. Unfortunately, Nothing at Boot & Saddle is sold out, as you should’ve known that it would, but I’m a firm believer that you can get into any show that you really want to. You just need to get crafty. Maybe unlawful sometimes, but it’s all in the name of the rock gods. Hope to see you out and about this NYE! - Q.D. Tran 




New Track: "Suicide Saturday" (Cheerleader Remix) - Hippo Campus

Below is a new soothing yet uplifting remix from Cheerleader of Hippo Campus's "Suicide Saturday." The bands connected last year on Cheerleader's first tour across the US. The Philly crew's next performance will be on Wednesday, November 18 at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, DE.

CRUISR, Cold Fronts, Cheerleader & More at the TLA Sept. 12

CRUISR headlines a show this evening at the TLA, which showcases a triumvirate of locally-centric pop rockers. The quartet fortifies virulent melodies with enticing, penetrating all-inclusive grooves. Those casual, carefree vibes and polished, crowd participation-inducing vocals are just the right recipe for the weekend as one releases the tension and momentarily lets it go. With their highly anticipated debut LP Forever Whatever scheduled for release on October 23 via Sire, Cold Fronts mesh robust, universal pop-rock anthems with stick-to-your-ribs thumping backend and white-hot guitar interplay. The endearing warmth of power-pop Cheerleader sunkisses your ears with rich harmonies and a cozy haze, while the merger of pouncing electro-percussive and magnetizing vocals mesh in New York’s VÉRITÉ. TLA, 334 South St., 7:30pm, $15, All Ages - Michael Colavita
