West Philly punk rock duo PINKWASH are making some of the loudest, most rage-worthy tunes in the city right now, and they’ll bring their energetic and heavy sound to Everybody Hits tonight for a show with WAND, who are touring support of their recently-released new album Plum, and Darto. PINKWASH’s last release was their debut LP Collective Sigh in 2016, and they recorded a Key Studio Session earlier this year, which you can listen to below. Since guitarist / vocalist Joey Doubek has been busy on tour drumming for Downtown Boys and drummer Ashley Arnwine has been doing the same with Waxahatchee, getting the two bandmates in the same place at once has been rare this year — so don’t miss it.

Listen to RAC’s remix of “Up Top Of The World by Imagine Dragons

imagineRACdragons Producer and remixer RAC just released a remix of “On Top of The World” by Imagine Dragons. Both artists recently announced Philly shows. RAC is plying Johnny Brenda’s on Wednesday, November 13th. Imgaine Dragons are playing the Susquehanna Bank Center on Friday, March 7th. Tickets are on sale for both shows now. More information can be found on the XPN Concert Calendar here. RAC is producer, remixed and mutli-instrumentalist André Allen Anjos and on his remix of “On Top Of The World” he shifts the groove ever so slightly to give it a subtle dance vibe while maintaining the original’s anthemic song structure. Listen to it below.
