We’re very excited to have Philadelphia’s DRGN King on the lineup for this year’s XPoNential Music Festival. Their Paragraph Nights LP, released on Bar / None Records earlier this year, is stylish and catchy, and they put on one heck of a live show – something nicely captured by the Out of Town Films crew with their most recent video. The filmmakers explain it like so:
Two weeks ago, we invited local Philly band DRGN King to come play at Girard Hall after their show at Kung Fu Necktie. The plan was to have them play acoustically and to have a few people over to watch the performance. Well, things didn’t go exactly as planned and for the better. The acoustic set turned into a full on electric set and the few people turned into many people. So basically it was a mini-show.
The police were lurking outside since it was midnight on a Thursday and DRGN King were playing pretty loudly. They only had time for two songs. One of which was “Holy Ghost”, a song apparently about looking like Jesus.
Check out the video below. For more DRGN King goodness, check out their recent Brighton Sound Session, or download their Key Studio Session from 2011. The XPoNential Music Festival happens from July 26 to July 28 at Wiggins Park in Camden, NJ.
