Grandchildren release their new album Zuni at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The cinematic rockers stopped by for a Key Studio Session earlier this summer, giving us a sneak peek of some of the new songs and proving that band is still locked into the textures and sounds that made their earlier releases so captivating. Watch them perform “Walking Dead” below and pick up tickets to the 21+ release show with Spaceship Aloha and White Bike here.

Beer Week is coming to an end, but its not over yet. The week will close out with the Dock Street 6th Annual End-of-Beer-Week Free Music Fest and Scavenger Run. This year, the fest lineup includes Philly artists Grandchildren, West Philadelphia Orchestra and Gliss. The three performers bring an array of musical genres to the festival stage. Orchestral pop band Grandchildren will craft soundscapes with tons of synth, while West Philadelphia Orchestra is rooted in Eastern European folk and brings the traditions to life. Rapper Gliss rounds out the bill, bringing the heart and soul of hip-hop in his music. Catch the three performers this Sunday, June 8 outside Dock Street Brewery. The music fest is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Philly Beer Week website. Listen to all three of the artists’ music below.
Night Panther and Grandchildren are kicking off the pre-New Years Eve weekend together at Boot & Saddle. The disco / dream pop folks in Night Panther released a single off of their recent debiut LP last week via yvynyl called “Pleasure To Meet You,” available for a limited time as a free download below. Grandchildren also released an LP this year called Golden Age. The orchestral pop outfit was featured in The Key’s Unlocked series back in April, where we dug into the new record and all the work that went into recording it. Check out the feature here and download “End Times” from Golden Age here. Tickets and information for the bands’ December 28th show at Boot & Saddle can be found here.
