restorationsPunk-rooted Philly five-piece Restorations are among the bands playing the Philly Beergasm, a charity concert at Yards Brewery to benefit local hunger relief organization Philabundance.

Along with Restorations – who are about to drop their killer LP2 on SideOneDummy Records – the bill features Two Cities, an alt-punk duo whose Little Ghosts EP was recorded with local hardcore superproducer Wil Yip, and New York folk-influenced rockers The End of America.

Kudos to The Deli for spotting this yesterday: Gabrielle Smith and Benjamin Schurr, formerly of Philadelphia’s Br’er, just released a single under their new experimental pop project, Eskimeaux. The haunting track, “Trinkets,” can be heard on the Prefix Magazine website here. “Trinkets” will be part of the duo’s forthcoming self-titled album, scheduled for release November 8th. The album is being released through the label Human Kindness Overflowing and will only cost $5.00, with $2.50 going towards meals for Philabundance while the remaining $2.50 is split between the artist and the label’s future contributions to charities. Eskimeaux will be playing at Moviate in Harrisburg November 13th; ticket and show information can be found here.
