Tonight’s Indie Rock Hit Parade is jam packed with just the stuff you need to make it through your Friday night in one piece. Tune in at 11pm on XPN for, among other fine things, a spotlight on the new album from Philly’s own Creepoid (it’s the next best thing to seeing them at JB’s tonight), plus a few of these fresh tracks in the mix:
Psychedelic Philly doomsayers Creepoid celebrate the release of their new LP Cemetery Highrise Slum tonight at Johnny Brenda’s.

It’s been about a year since our friends Eternal Summers released an album, so that must mean it’s time for them to release another album! We’ll be joined yet again by the Roanoke trio on tonight’s Indie Rock Hit Parade, as they play songs from their newly released LP, Gold And Stone, live in our studio. Tonight’s full two-hour show also features a spotlight on City Of Quartz, the new solo album from Nick “Diamonds” Thorburn (Islands, The Unicorns). Plus a few of these selections in the mix:
Imagine walking into some downtown dive bar late at night, and recording what you see when you first step through the door. Hazy swirls of cigarette smoke coat the place in a fog. Over at the bar, the ancient TV is playing an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and the only three patrons are all slumped against the counter. In a booth, a couple is halfheartedly kissing, trying to escape the burdens of life and temporarily replace them with love. Philly noise-punks Creepoid would probably be a fitting soundtrack to this dreary scene. Continue reading →
Psychedelic punks Creepoid are gearing up to release their latest effort, Cemetery Highrise Slum on Collect Records next month.

Heavy psychedelic four-piece Creepoid returned to their hometown of Philly this spring after a year off in Savannah, and they will celebrate the release of their upcoming LP, Cemetery Highrise Slum, next month.
Tonight, Jeff Zeigler and Mary Lattimore are setting up shop at the Alamo Ritz in Austin to play their live soundtrack of Philippe Garrel’s 1968 avant-garde film, Le Revélatéur. This will be an intimate gig compared to the next of the weekend, when they’ll switch gears to play for hundreds at Austin Psych Fest’s Levitation festival at Carson Creek Ranch.
“In terms of performing at Levitation, as per usual we’re going into our set with little or no real formal preparation as it’s all improvised, so I guess the plan is to have no real plan. We may discuss the overall arc and vibe but beyond that it’ll be fairly loose,” Jeff writes.
May 8th thru the 10th marks the 8th annual festival, which was rebranded this year as “Levitation” to celebrate the first-ever reunion show from the 13th Floor Elevators, who will close out the festival Sunday night. Continue reading →
