Lansdale power pop punks The Sixties teased their new EP Haunt Me (out April 11th) with their newest single “Let’s Lose It All”.
Marking their first new material since 2014’s There It Isn’t, we find an upbeat indie-esque tune akin to some classic Gatsby’s American Dream, spilling the ultimate conundrum of roaming through life without a well-established purpose. A prancing guitar dominates the song in an instantly catchy fashion, landing the single as another anthemic track from the quintet.
Maceo Parker is a one-of-a-kind performer, but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t willing to borrow from the best. Playing saxophone in bands with both George Clinton and James Brown provided a pretty solid basis for how to get a crowd going and Parker has used this experience, as well as his own long solo career, to put together one of the most energized and exciting live performances going. Parker will be at Ardmore Music Hall tonight alongside Philly-natives Rugby Road; click here for more info. Continue reading →

Lansdale, PA, trio The Sixties are “unapologetically hard rock, aggressive and anthemic,” says The Key’s John Vettese. “Loaded with hooks, vocal bravado by frontman C.J. Morgan and serpentine shreddery by lead guitarist Chris Wagner,” says Vettese, the band – also featuring Chris Mehr on drums – released the red hot There It Isn’t in June. Continue reading →
Local indie rockers Southwork will play Johnny Brenda’s tonight, celebrating the release of its latest record Wear Your Heart Out. The record was recorded in a South Philly row home on a reel-to-reel tape machine owned by frontman Mike Vivas’ cousins.
