Saturday night in Northern Liberties, Philly indie four-piece Dear Friend celebrates its album release at Ortlieb’s. The self-titled album is the band’s first record since 2014, and in the time since, the band has been an active part of the Philly music scene, playing gigs at Philly venues like Boot and Saddle, MilkBoy and Bourbon and Branch. Music from the new album hasn’t made its way online yet, but in the meantime, check out the audio from the band’s 2014 release (also self-titled). Saturday’s show is 21+, tickets start at $10 and can be found here.
Another Philly band, Honeytiger, open the show. Honeytiger is a garage rock duo consisting of Josh Glauser on the drums and Isaac Clark on the guitar and lead vocals. The duo’s latest LP, Half Clean, was released back in January. With shows in Philadelphia on a semi-weekly basis, there are plenty of chances for fans (old and new) to go see them live — but this lineup is particularly sweet.
Newer indie noise trio Tiny Vices will be sure to fit right in on the show as well. The Philly band’s debut demo EP Kintsugi – not to be confused with the Death Cab album of the same name – was released in June of this year. Get a taste of what they’ll bring to the table on Saturday below.
Brooklyn-based rock band Atomic Girl will be the final supporting act at Dear Friend’s album release show. You can check out the two tracks the group has on Soundcloud below.
Tickets and more information on Dear Friend’s album release party can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
