Listen to a new Reading Rainbow song “Dead End,”

Reading Rainbow have a new song called “Dead End” that you can stream below.

According to the band’s web site:

Listen to our new song “Dead End” that we did for our secret split 7″ with SUPER WILD HORSES for the HoZac Hook up Klub!!
Sadly you can only get copies if you were a Hook up Klub Round 2 member – BUT we should have these for sale on tour in September!


– Recorded before Al joined the band, but the guitar feedback in the beginning and end of the song includes Al wailing on guitar. (Al also recorded this song for us)

– Feedback at beginning and end of the track also includes Rob wailing on guitar as well as SARAH* wailing. (*look for more Sarah guitar playing in future)

Vice and Vitamin Water announce a free Reading Rainbow (+ more) show on August 27th

Philly is apparently the place to be for free music this summer. Vice and Vitamin Water have just announced a free show to take place next Saturday, August 27th at Sigma Sound Studios. As part of the Vitamin Water Uncapped Live series, the concert will feature an all-local lineup: Reading Rainbow, Cat Vet, and The Homophones. The evening will be curated by The Raveonettes. The show is 21+ and free with an RSVP, which you can easily fill out here.

A somewhat interesting sponsor/curator/artist partnership, but we’ll take it! Thanks to The Deli Philadelphia for the tip.


Tonight’s Concert Pick: Girls Rock Philly! benefit show w/Trophy Wife, Cat Vet, Whore Paint, and Slutever at The Rotunda

GRP Benefit ShowAs we mentioned this morning, tonight’s must-see “Revolution Girl Style Again” panel discussion (simulcast via streaming video at The Rotunda) is immediately followed by a Girls Rock Philly! benefit show. The lineup features three local acts—Trophy Wife, Cat Vet, and Slutever—as well as Providence, RI’s Whore Paint. I won’t even bother trying to tone down my unbridled enthusiasm for tonight’s discussion + concert one-two combo; February 8th has been circled on my calendar since the moment I first found out about the two events. Between the speakers, the musical acts, the venues, and the organizations involved, it promises to be an invigorating evening on multiple levels. So, basically, if you didn’t have any plans for tonight, you do now—and, if you had plans for that didn’t include The Rotunda, you should change them. Trophy Wife, Cat Vet, Slutever, and Whore Paint perform at 8 p.m. at The Rotunda; tickets to the all-ages show are $5 (all proceeds benefit Girls Rock Philly!).
