Annachristie Sadler brings her new project Murchant to Puck Live in Doylestown tonight. Formerly one third of local folk collaborators Sisters 3, Sadler’s musical history includes backing up Hoots & Hellmouth and Hezekiah Jones, as well as recording a handful of full-lengths with her sibling bandmates. With Murchant, though, Sadler takes a turn from the three-part indie pop/folk harmonies of Sisters 3 and instead lends her soaring vocals to more mystical, acoustic arrangements. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Reverend TJ McGlinchey can be found here. Watch Murchant perform in the NYC metro below.
It kind of makes you wonder if Philly rapper Chill Moody is like this during his “guest bartending” sessions at Mikey’s American Grill & Sports Bar. The sage, all-knowing character dispensing wisdom to the brokenhearted with towel over his shoulder, bottle at his hand. In the new music video for this track from Chill’s RFM, that’s what we get – hook-master Beano arrives at an unidentified pub, proclaiming to our man serving drinks that “Today has been the worst day of my life.” He then goes on to drown his sorrows in Jameson while Chill provides him with some much-needed perspective. Check it out below; on Friday, Chill will be at Hard Rock Cafe in his performing (not serving) capacity. Tickets and information on the show can be found here.
After celebrating the release of his RFM LP with a sold-out crowd at The TLA a couple of months ago, local hip hop artist Chill Moody comes to The Blockley for another celebration – this time a celebration of love. Moody will team up once again with Beano and Hank McCoy to perform the last installment in their Valentine’s Day mixtape Who Do You Love?in its entirety. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here. Below, watch them perform a track from the mixtape live in Love Park.
West Philly rapper Chill Moody announced today that he and his crew of collaborators – singer Beano, production guru Hank McCoy – would perform their entire Who Do You Love? collaboration in its entirety (and backed by a live band, Band for Higher) at Love Park in Philadelphia on Friday Sept. 28 at noon. “Think MTV Unplugged meets VH1 storytellers meets #nicethingsTV,” wrote Chill in a blog post today.
yesterday we went uptown for the first rehearsal. this is the first time any of us has heard this band play any of these songs. we weren’t like nervous, cuz we are familiar with Band For Higher they play for like everybody, but we were def anxious to see how things would turn out. needless to say we were pleased.
the show is going to be amazing. figuring out all the transitions is going to be the most difficult part, but i think we got it.
Check out footage from the rehearsal below. The show on Sept. 28 is free, open to the public, and will be followed by a 1 p.m. set.
Last week, West Philadelphia rapper Chill Moody released Who Do You Love?, his third annual Valentine’s Day collaboration with producer Hank McCoy. This time, R&B vocalist Beano was recruited to add some melodic hooks to the mix. You can download the entire mixtape at Chill’s website, and get a taste in today’s Philly Local Phile with “What Took You So Long.” Its soul sample, sharp raps and romantic refrain are a trip back to the days of the Boomerang Soundtrack. Listen below, and catch Chill in concert at Silk City next Tuesday Feb. 28.
