TJ Kong Presents: Beer Week events!

Philly Beer Week Garden at The Headhouse Shambles

Philly Beer Week runs through June the 9th, and it’s an event where you can find great local beer, food and free music at Headhouse on Second Street.  Every day from 5 – 8 p.m., artists like Cold Fronts, Swift Technique, Ali Wadsworth, New Sweden and The Lawsuits will perform.  It’s all curated by Phillies’ own eclectic rock band TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb (who have their own show Thursday at 10).  It all culminates with a giant party Saturday at the City Tap House featuring a few other bands like The Fleeting Ends, Thee Idea Men and Ang and the Damn Band.  It’s a week of fantastic music, fun and free admission.  Go here for more information, stop by this week to see some great local music, and watch TJ Kong’s “Aincent Road Blues” video below.


Royal Shoals playing with The Bats tomorrow at Johnny Brenda’s

RoyalShoalsA few months ago, Philly band Royal Shoals released their solid second EP Surrounderer +3 as a pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp.  For the EP, Royal Shoals have found influence ranging from punk to pop to new wave, creating a sharp, danceable sound all their own.  Tomorrow, they’re set to play Johnny Brenda’s with New Zealand rock band The Bats, who released their latest full-length Free All the Monsters back in 2011.  With such amazing acts, this is one Tuesday show you don’t want to miss.  You can find out more information about the concert here. Check out “Life’s A Boy” from Surrounderer +3 below.
