Last we checked in with the local favs, they were wowing us at XPN Fest. And below, you’ll find a recording of “Moody” they shot with local video crew Out of Town Films — a song we dove into on our Time Capsule series.

Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company’s taproom was filled with singing punks baring inebriated smiles this past Saturday night.

Local staples The Menzingers teamed up with their friends at Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company in Croydon, PA to brew an Imperial Kolsch style beer. They dubbed the hoppy brew “Menzinger,” and tapped a limited release at five o’clock on Saturday to prepare the large crowd for a night of acoustic punk. Along with the the easy-drinking 8% ABV Menzinger, the crowd was treated to performances from New York’s Broadcaster, Philly’s critically acclaimed Beach Slang, and of course, The Menzingers.

On Friday and Saturday night, Philly area bands mewithoutYou and The Menzingers co-headlined a back-to-back stint to a sold out crowd at Union Transfer. The bands kicked off their fall tour earlier this month along with Pianos Become The Teeth and Restorations. Following the release of their latest album Pale Horses, mewithoutYou delivered an energetic, lively performance that left the audience chanting for more. Frontman Aaron Weiss’s captivating lyrics filled the room as he paraded around the stage, swinging his hands into the air and gripping the neck of his guitar, giving us the type of performance his band has become known for.

Philadelphia Takes over Florida’s The FEST…again

themenzingersIt seems that everyone is catching onto the fact that Philadelphia’s music scene is not something to overlook. Even though it takes place in Gainesville, Florida, The FEST seems to be overrun with artists from our city. Last year, we talked to a bunch of local artists about why that is, then took a trip down to Gainesville to experience it for ourselves. This year’s lineup was recently announced, and Philly once again represented heavily in the lineup of over 330, we rounded up a list of must-see locals making the trip to FEST. Continue reading →
