Philly Local Philes: Dear Althea’s “Oh Today”

By

For the first month in its new location at Kungfu Necktie, Sugar Town didn’t skimp on the lineup. This weekend’s installment of the monthly women-in-rock showcase that local promoter and writer Sara Sherr has organized for over a decade features Key faves Slutever, the post-Post Post popsters Little Big League (who we told you about in last week’s Philly Local Philes), NYC punks Mannequin Pussy and DJ Julia Factorial from WPRB. Rounding out the bill is Dear Althea, a fantastic new Philly foursome that evokes post-riot grrl touchstones like Veruca Salt, 80s punk frontrunners like The Plasmatics, and going way back, foundational acts like The Cramps and Screaming Lord Sutch – some of the people who first made rock n roll freaky. In today’s Philly Local Phile, we dig into their song “Oh Today” – give it a listen or download it below, and catch it in person Saturday night at 8 – tickets to the 21+ show are $8.
