Amanda X





Weekend Warrior, November 21 - 23

Some lineups are solid but have weaker spots; others are strong with talent from top to bottom. Remember when the Phillies were strong, and now, well…before I digress, the bill this Saturday night is a can’t miss one, and conveniently it’s at Everybody Hits! The power-trio of Amanda X delivers sincere songs with a pop-punk melded tone and varying tempos that provide a tug and pull of energy that draws you close and then bursts through with the force of a crashing wave. Speaking of power trios, Hurry combines instrumental force and memorable, fuzzed-out guitar licks that lead into infectious rockers with lyrics incorporate a universal touch. Then, there’s the Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick pairing known as Lithuania. Their sound is simultaneously tight and twisted, hitting hard and fast in a lively garage-punk spectrum or delving off the beaten path and seeing where the synth and percussion leads them. The show will be led off by the distorted pop-rock of duo Slow Animal. Everybody Hits!, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $5, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Amanda X is also playing a killer show this Saturday, November 22 at Everybody Hits with Hurry, Lithuania, and Slow Animal.

Amanda X Opening for Parkay Quarts at PhilaMOCA Nov. 8

Amnesia, the debut LP the trio of Amanda X, is a record that immediately caught my attention, and with each successive listen, that sonic bond grows stronger. It gives off a close to the vest personal vibe that varies in tone from grey and ominous to bright and promising, consistently moving free in a pop-punk environment in which the individual instrumental elements are tightly woven developing a cohesive sound that’s easy to gravitate toward and rough enough to sink into with enough air to emerge from. Tonight, Amanda X opens for the street-level, dirt-under-your-nails, earnest, sludgy melodic punk of Parkay Quarts; however, the event at PhilaMOCA is sold out so hopefully you planned ahead. PhilaMOCA 531 N. 12th St. 8:30pm, $13, All Ages-Michael Colavita

Philly Summer Fest at PhilaMOCA Aug. 9

PhilaMOCA hosts another summer Saturday barbecue fest today with Dogs on Acid (ex-Algernon Cadwallader) and friends. This one will also be the album release party for fast-paced, sludge punks Cassilis. It will be a good chance to catch garage-pop trio Amanda X (if somehow you missed all the group’s bazillion local performances this summer), before they embark on a U.S. tour, and find out why so many people have been raving about their debut album Amnesia. Hardcore noise duo Bubonic Bear will bring an ample serving of guitar-laden chaos, and Mike Bell & the Movies will deliver an upbeat dose of melodic indie pop. The show will also feature The Weaks, Sleep Study, and more. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 3:30pm, $10, All Ages - Bill McThrill
