Philly post-punk trio The Bad Doctors play The Trocadero balcony tonight. With new-wave vocals augmented by relentless, driving arrangements the band’s handful of releases, including 2011’s ear catching EP Distractions, are a small but impressive sampling of what these guys are capable of. Dig into their Key Studio Session from November 2011 here and take note of stand-out tracks “The Big Bang” and “The Ugliest Man.” Tickets and information for tonight’s all-ages show with FIGO and The Killing Floor can be found here. Stream and download “The Big Bang” below.
On the heels of Raekwon’s solo set at The Blockley, fellow Wu-Tang Clan member Cappadonna performs at the Chestnut Street venue tonight. The on-again-off-again collaborator of the influential hip hop group first appeared on Raekwaon’s single “Ice Cream” before going on to contribute lines to the Clan’s Wu-Tang Forever debut and subsequently releasing a solo album, The Pillage, in 1998. Currently touring in support of last month’s Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre/Love, Anger & Emotion, Cappadonna may rejoin RZA, GZA and the rest of the clan on their festival tour this summer. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show can be found here. Below, watch the video for “Slang Editorial” off of The Pillage.
