O’Death celebrating 10th Anniversary at North Star Bar on 4/20

odeath_oldGothic folk / punk outfit O’Death will tour this spring to celebrate their 10th Anniversary as a band, with a date at the North Star Bar on April 20th.  Over the course of its decade-long career, the Brooklyn band has recorded three full-lengths of “Appalachian rust-punk,” most recently putting their songs to tape on 2011’s Outside.  To honor their beginnings in the mini-festival scene of the East Village, O’Death are bringing along several support acts for this tour including Wild Yaks, Trummors, and Butcher Boy (plus more).  Tickets and information for their 21+ Philly show can be found here.  Watch the video for “Bugs” off of Outside below.


Tonight’s Concert Picks: Turning Violet Violet at Kung Fu Necktie, Bleeding Rainbow at Johnny Brenda’s, Mary Lattimore at Kung Fu Necktie, Philebrity Valentine’s Day special with Juston Stens at Underground Arts, plus more

Local indie group Turning Violet Violet play Kung Fu Necktie tonight.  The Key Studio Session alums carve out chamber alt-rock songs on the fringe of art-rock that seem bathed in a purple glow, though that might just be residual effects of their band name.  Either way, the songs on Turning Violet Violet’s debut full-length Double Cure are swathe-y, sweeping compositions that strike all the right feelings chords.   Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with TeamMate and Donora can be found here.  Revisit Turning Violet Violet’s Key Session here and watch their video for “Cold Bread” below.
