Dangerous Ponies will be playing at MilkBoy tonight in celebration of their brand new four-song EP Tenderheart. Released just this month, Dangerous Ponies shifts their sound between fun loving indie, as well as some pop influence, but mostly, it is just a plain good time. The new release can be found to buy on their Bandcamp, where you can also purchase the release on vinyl. Also to be taking the stage is Philadelphia’s two piece punk band Slutever. The duo has various material available on their Bandcamp, one of which is their single released in February of this year. Tickets and information for the 21 and up show can be found here. Below, listen to the title track off of Dangerous Ponies EP Tenderheart.

Dynamic Philadelphia based hip-hop artist Gilbere Forte is set to release his latest project, a short film and an accompanying soundtrack called Pray, due out in early 2013. Forte, perhaps best known thus far for his 2010 single “Black Chukkas,” has proven himself as a powerful voice in hip-hop, cemented by his swift emergence onto the scene and his various honors (including being featured on the BET Awards, Fuse and putting out releases with Pusha T and Tyga). He had a brief reconstruction period after signing with Anigma Records, but 2013 may mark Forte’s triumphant return. Along with his college friend and producer, Raak, Gilbere Forte has the potential to keep pushing Philadelphia hip-hop rhythmically and lyrically. For more on Gilbere Forte you can stream his 2012 mixtape YOTD: Year of the Dragon here. Below is the first video from his upcoming release Pray.
