Local rockers Arctic Splash (featuring Joey Sweeney of Philebrity) are celebrating their one year anniversary with a free show at 9PM tonight at Gunner’s Run. Check out the band performing “Denim Tuxedo” for Bands in the Backyard in the player below.
Finally, Philly bands City Rain, Cold Fronts, and The Mendles are playing a variety show with local comedians Lisa Yost, James Hesky, and Alex Grubard at PhilaMOCA tonight. There is an $8 donation fee at the door and a portion of proceeds will go to the organization To Write Love On Her Arms, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. Doors open at 6:30PM and the show starts at 7:30PM. Visit the event page here for more details. Listen to the title track off City Rain’s upcoming EP, Montage, in the player below.
Okay, so there really isn’t a band called The Charlie Manuel Experience, but we do think it’s a cool band name if someone out there really wanted to take the plunge. Let’s face facts: tonight’s Phillies game against the Giants is the game of the year. Being the super fans that we are, it’s quite challenging to suggest that you do anything but find one of those really giant TV screens somewhere and get involved with the game tonight. Sure, you can always go to pretty much any bar in town tonight for this experience or if you prefer being your own private fan, then stay home and settle in. The choice is yours.
If the BIGGEST, MOST IMPORTANT MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME OF THE YEAR isn’t your thing then we suggest you check out the following shows:

If you can’t make it to York, and you’re still set on going out and missing the BIGGEST MOST IMPORTANT MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME OF THE YEAR we suggest you go see Gary Numan whose “Cars” has been forever branded in to our New Wave hearts. He is playing at The Trocadero. Doors at 7:00PM. Show at 8:00PM. All Ages. Tickets are $24 in advance, $26 at the door.
