When word got out that iconic Philadelphia venue The Trocadero was closing its doors for good this spring, owner Joanna Pang promised “We’re going to go out with a bang, in grand Troc style,” with a series of final concerts.
One of those is a an all-local showcase, curated by Lisa Flynn, who was a promoter at the venue in the late 90s and early thousands, and packed the Balcony bar and big room alike with Philly rock favorites like her power trio Lisa Christ Superstar. That band is back together for the May 19 main stage show, along with aughties psych mindbenders Three-4-Tens, and alternative-era faves Dandelion, who released two LPs during the major label boom of the 90s.
Also in the mix are West Philly shredders Stinking Lizavetta, modern rock powerhouse Alright Junior, sardonic punk faves Pissed Jeans, a School of Rock Philadelphia showcase, along with appearances by Pagan Babies and Violent Society.
More information on the show can be found at Facebook; watch and listen to XPN sessions from several of these artists below.
