Singer-songwriter Gianmarco Cilli echoes the delicately striking tapestry of quirk and nostalgia found with sixties folk-pop bands on his new record Summers Gone Away, an EP that took three years to complete. In addition to his solo career, Cilli is a member of Philadelphia’s National Eye and holiday close-harmony collective The Silver Ages (with Charlie Hall, Dave Hartley, Nick Krill and more). The Silver Ages will perform at Art in the Age in December and will hold their sixth annual Holiday Spectacular at the Ethical Society of Philadelphia on Saturday, January 19th; stay tuned for tickets and more information. Below, listen to “Waiting Around.”
Art in the Age
Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction presents “Sub Pop Art Debt,” an art show featuring over two decades worth of odds and ends from Sub Pop‘s art department archives. The collection includes, but is not limited to, art work, sketches, label ads, press sheets, blue-lines, and cutting room floor scraps from the Seattle indie record label that has represented bands such as Nirvana, Fleet Foxes, The Shins, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Sunny Day Real Estate, and more in their nearly 25 year career.
There is an opening reception for the exhibit on August 3rd from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. Afterwards, the exhibit will be open to the public throughout the month of August until the 24th at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction during their store hours, which are listed on their website.
