From the Pages of JUMP: Eric Slick performing Primal Essence at PhilaMOCA


Here at The Key we’re big fans of JUMP Magazine and their extensive coverage of the broad-reaching Philly music scene – pop to punk, jazz to jam band, and whatever else you can think of. Beginning this week, we’ll regularly highlight some of the features from the pages of JUMP here on The Key, starting with their coverage of our Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA last night. Eric Slick played an impressive live score to his film Primal Essence, JUMP editor and publisher G.W. Miller III was there with his camera, and this is what he had to say:

This month, John Vettese (below, on the right) and The Key are hosting the Tuesday Tune-Out shows at PhilaMOCA and they kicked off their portion of the ongoing series with an amazing show.

Dr. Dog drummer Eric Slick, who also drums for Norwegian Arms, Ape School and others, performed a solo show set to a video he produced (with the help of his Norwegian Arms bandmate Brendan Mulvihill and friend Andy Molholt). The video, titled Primal Essence, featured Slick in a dream sequence – in which he had a romantic liaison with a slice of pizza.

He drummed live on stage in collaboration with his on screen character. It was surreal and amazing.

Michael Johnson (bottom image) from Ape School and Jonathan Pfeffer from Capillary Action opened the show.

The crowd alone was a who’s who of the Philly music scene. Among those in attendance were Adam Granduciel from The War on Drugs, Frances Quinlan from Hop Along, Dominic Angelella from DRGN KING, Mike Sneeringer from Purling Hiss and Scott McMicken from Dr. Dog.

Next week, Vettese and The Key will present Zilla Rocca. Find show details here.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
    add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog centered on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would appreciate your work.

    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.


    I think that everything published was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you were to create
    a killer headline? I am not suggesting your content isn’t
    good, but suppose you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean From the Pages
    of JUMP: Eric Slick performing Primal Essence at PhilaMOCA | The Key is a
    little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to grab
    people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about
    everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make
    your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much
    about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
    I believe that you just could do with a few percent to pressure the message
    house a bit, however other than that, that is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it
    but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
