Chill Philadelphia four-piece Small Circle (populated by vocalist Marissa D’Elia along with Sorority Noise’s Cam Boucher and Adam Ackerman, Rozwell Kid’s Sean Hallock) released a reissued version of their 2016 EP melatonin on Boucher’s new label Flower Girl Records.

After the saddening news of Modern Baseball’s canceled spring tour, Sorority Noise knew they still had to get out on the road this year. After a couple hectic weeks, the band announced a full US headlining tour with (and get ready for this) Sinai Vessel, Walter Etc., Mat Kerekes, Forth Wanderers, The Obsessives, and Shannen Moser. Lucky for us, Union Transfer will be blessed on June 14th with the latter three opening for the Connecticut-based rockers.
Philadelphia hip-hop collective Hardwork Movement is playing a record release show at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The group’s music boasts intricate jazz-tinged instrumental arrangements and a fierce pride of their deep roots in The City of Brotherly Love. 2016 was a fantastic year for the nine-member group: earlier this year they released their debut LP Good Problems, and a few months later they signed to Chill Moody’s #nicethingsMUSIC imprint. Come help Hardwork Movement celebrate and get a taste of their mixtape Draft Night at their last show of 2016 in Fishtown. Brooklyn-bred Tacuma Bradley’s Unity Band and Philadelphia singer-songwriter Julia Rainer are also on tonight’s bill.
