Unlike the pink album cover of their recent Sunbather LP would suggest, Deafhaven make loud, energetic post-rock with a heaping serving of metal influences thrown in. Sunbather (an album where the average song length is about 8 minutes) was released this June, and Deafhaven tour includes a stop at The Barbary. You can stream the diverse-sounding album below (and on Bandcamp) and you can find more information and tickets here.
Last Full Measure (brainchild of local Brendan Walsleben) are bringing their melodic, post-punkish sound to the North Star Bar tonight, and to the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Friday. At PMA, they’re playing together with Daniel de Jesus, a singer and celloist who plays with bands Rasputina and TivaTiva; tonight, it’s a solo Last Full Measure show for the North Star’s Victorian Dining Room series. Below, check out the track “Sellout” from Last Full Measure’s 2012 release Places, Everyone.Deafheaven, Last Full Measure, North Star Bar, The Barbary
