Back in May, the Philly boys in Nothing announced a 30+ day long tour with Culture Abuse and WRONG in support of their second and most recent album, Tired Of Tomorrow. However, the last four days of this tour were something special. Although WRONG wasn’t able to join, Nothing did a small four day run with Culture Abuse, Citizen, and Mary Lattimore and Jeff Ziegler at the end of their tour. On Friday night, July 8th, this tour made its way to Philly, which was definitely monumental for these dudes considering it was the band’s official record release show for Tired Of Tomorrow in their hometown.

Punks meets cabaret tonight at The Trocadero as The World / Inferno Friendship Society takes the stage. The band’s sound is just as huge as its roster, having anywhere from 7 to 13 members playing horns, piano, bass, guitar, drums and more.

Festivals and I have such a love/hate relationship. Not only as a music lover and someone who works in the industry, but as a general human being. There’s the hot humidity of the early days of summer mixed with the tangled bodies of hippies and hipsters gallivanting across an open field, overpriced food and alcohol, and crowds so large you can hardly see the band you’re there to see. At the same time, you’re completely enthralled with the good vibes, the exciting atmosphere, and the thrill of so much good music.

If you’re looking for something joyful, this isn’t the best place to start your search. But what Nothing did here is interesting, basing it off the Dire Straits video “Money For Nothing.” Continue reading →

I’ll be honest: Tonight’s Indie Rock Hit Parade is a little all over the map. Tune in at 11pm ET on WXPN to hear how things shake out. With more individual tracks coming out this week than full-length albums, we’ll forego the tradition spotlight feature in favor of a smattering of fresh new singles. We’ll hear gauzy pop from the sister duo Puro Instinct, the solo debut from Animal Collective guitarist Deakin, and a blast of noise energy from Philly’s own Nothing. And that’s just a sample! Preview those tracks below…
