Tonight, The Powder Kegs get a little bit of extra mileage out of their full-length debut, The Amanicans. As we mentioned back in March, when John Vettese highlighted the Philly-based pop quartet in his Philly Local Philes, The Amanicans (which was recorded at Miner St. Studios and released on March 30th) celebrated its official release with a show at Kung Fu Necktie on April 3rd. Two months later, the celebration continues: this time, with a vinyl-release show at Johnny Brenda’s. Sure, it’s the same songs and the same record—but, this time, it’s on vinyl. [That said, vinyl remains awesome and hopefully will always have a place within indie-rock—and the more bands who release vinyl versions of their albums (while ditching the CD format for straight-up digital downloads), the better.] The Powder Kegs perform with Paper Cat and Communipaw at 9 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $10.
Also playing: Meg Baird + Kath Bloom, Ember Schrag at Kung Fu Necktie (7:30 p.m., 21+, $8)
