Amanda X

Weekend Warrior, March 18 - 20

Tonight is the Planned Parenthood fundraiser at First Unitarian Church, featuring some of the most rippin’ female-fronted bands the Northeast has to offer. Screaming Females, a band who is impossible to describe without some variation of the word “shred,” is headlining the event along with Cayetana, the indie punk trio whose sincerity will mend your soul, Amanda X, the post-something power-gaze band with a flair for fuzzy melody, Dark Thoughts, who play so fast they make pacemakers combust, and Littler, who will open the night with a healthy dosage of grunge-twee feels. If you have secured a ticket to the sold-out event, you should know that the screaming deal you got on it was in order to promote inclusivity; if you want to support PP further, then there will be an area in the venue to donate those extra bills. All money raised at the event will go to Planned Parenthood Southeastern PA and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and all the rockin’ tunes and memories are yours to keep. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 7pm, Sold Out, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

Throbbing Chakra Opening for Nobunny at JB's Nov. 15

An exploratory headspace united with a raging post-punk assertion that doesn’t fit neatly into a genre pocket (but what really does?), the trio of Throbbing Chakra, featuring Lantern's Zachary Fairbrother, traverses uncertain territory. However, as they work across the grounds, a magnetizing sound emerges. One illuminated with a creepy yet intriguing glow that you’ll follow into spaces unseen. Tonight, the space is Johnny Brenda’s, where they'll be kicking things off, alongside Amanda X, whose three-pronged attack combines a heavy rhythm push, guitar work that slithers and screams, and vocals that melodically glide over top. The unfettered blitz of Baltimore’s Sick Thoughts will also help to build a path to the zany garage-pop of Nobunny. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $14, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Amanda X Opening for Protomartyr at JB's Oct. 18

After releasing their two-song EP Hundreds and Thousands via Self Aware Records, Amanda X are set to hit the road with Detroit's Protomartyr. The tour started last night in Baltimore at the Metro Gallery, and will be rolling into town this evening at Johnny Brenda's. It also seems that the increased touring demands for the trio and a move to NYC in May for a new job may have lead to the recent exodus of Tiffany Yoon as a permanent member on drums. However, I'm sure Kat Park and Kat Bean are more than ready to rock for us tonight! Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Alexis V.


New Track: "Quilted" - Amanda X

Amanda X collectively goes through a spectrum of emotions as a deteriorating relationship is the focus of their nearly six-minute new track, “Quilted.” The single is the second half their forthcoming EP Hundreds and Thousands, due out September 22 via Self Aware Records. The garage-pop outfit is set to hit the road in October with Promartyr, and they’ll be stopping home on October 18 at Johnny Brenda’s.


New Track: "Juniper" - Amanda X & Tour Dates w/Protomartyr

All-female power trio Amanda X just announced that it will be dropping a new two-song EP, Hundreds and Thousands, on September 22 via Self Aware Records. You can take a listen to the records lead track, "Juniper," which premiered earlier today via Brooklyn Vegan. The band will also be heading out on the road this October with Protomartyr, and the tour will kick off on Sunday, October 18 at Johnny Brenda's.
