The Bul Bey





New The Bul Bey EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A new self-titled EP from The Bul Bey recently arrived via Illvibe Media. Over the span of five tracks, the emcee covers a lot of ground. There’s an authoritative air on display - a conversational tone that exudes confidence, striking with hard-hitting, personal topics. A through line of perseverance and persistence reigns, as if any obstacle that stands in the way is just another opportunity to shine. As the EP closes with “Deep Down In My Heart,” the artist addresses his demons and coming out on the other side, exhibiting a reaffirmed conviction to succeed/move forward, punctuated by a blistering guitar solo from Anthony DeCarlo of Ill Doots.

The Bul Bey Opening for Black Milk at JB's June 16

With a youthful sense of intensity drawn straight from a soul-injected center, The Bul Bey strikes forth, converting listeners with a composed confident tenacity. Tapping into a tireless energy, Bey delivers authentic, smooth rhymes that echo where he’s from, while suggesting where he wants to go. That down-to-earth, daily sincerity, further molded by widespread ambition, creates a relentless follow-the-leader vibe that’s a mix of grime, celebration and ambition. With new material on the way, he hits Johnny Brenda’s this evening, slotted after local emcee Has-Lo, whom may have a new EP on the horizon this summer. They set the table for Detroit native Black Milk, who, with Nate Turner, develops an all-consuming, soulful brand of hip hop. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $15, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Night Market w/Needle Points, Thin Lips, The Bul Bey & More in the Eraserhood June 18

The Foodtrust's Night Market comes to the Eraserhood this evening, and our friends at PhilaMOCA will be helping to provide the entertainment while you stuff your faces and wait in ridiculous lines. The Moz's Director, Eric Bresler, has put together a diverse lineup that consists of the psych-garage boogie of Needles Points, the riff-heavy pop-punk of Thin Lips, hustlin' Philly emcee The Bul Bey, Puerto Rican Bomba/Plena outfit Los Bomberos De la Calle, and synth-driven alt rockers Wild By Law. You'll also find Mitch Esparza (The Love Club) roaming the streets as a one-man mariachi band, 12-year-old Mayor of the Eraserhood, Lil Sean, providing a few laughs, and other short performances by the PhilaMOCA family of freaks. Protip: Come to the Night Market before it officially starts to scope it out and get your food. Even Better Protip: If you can only get there in the middle of the event, head on over to Jose's (469 N. 10th St.), and grab yourself a delicious burrito because those long lines aren't worth it. Eraserhood, 12th & 13th Sts. between Spring Garden & Callowhill Sts., 6pm-10pm, Free, All Ages - Q.D. Tran





Final Day of Sundrop Music Festival at The Fire May 24

The third and final day of the 5th annual Sundrop Music Festival (presented by Philadelphia Brewing Company & iRadio Philly) packs The Fire with an eclectic range of talent from the afternoon through the evening. Among those performing are the murky, dance-inspiring, electronic synth/percussion exploits of qqq, the chilled-out, gentle-swaying pop-rock of singer/songwriter Bryant Eugene Vazquez & The Songs, and the emotive alt-rock of Mumblr, whom have a propensity to shift those glum moments in combustible rockers. The sharp spun rhymes of The Bul Bey and the soul-filled electronic R&B Elegant Animals pave the way to a full day of enjoying that time off. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 2pm, Free, All Ages - Michael Colavita
