Hooters drummer David Uosikkinen’s “Essential Songs of Philadelphia” project continues to revisit classic tracks from the city’s musical history – songs that were either written in Philadelphia, or recorded by Philadelphians – with In The Pocket, an all-star cast of Philly players. So far, the band has recorded “All My Mondays” by Youth Camp; “Open My Eyes” by Todd Rundgren and Nazz; “You Can’t Sit Down” by The Dovells; “Soon You’ll Be Gone” by The Hooters; “Change Reaction” by Robert Hazard & The Heros; “Disco Inferno” by The Trammps; and “I Ain’t Searchin” by The American Dream. With an appearance coming up at The Colonial Theatre on January 11, In the Pocket made the entire collection available as a Soundcloud set you can stream here. Download the songs at the In the Pocket website, and get more information about the show here.
