Broken Beak Record Release Show at PhilaMOCA Aug. 19

Melancholy and dissonance merge with post-punk rhythms and an almost folk sense of lyricism to produce songs that grab you by the scruff of your neck and force you to listen. There is an honesty and abrasion that are both beautiful and haunting, which endures from the opening acoustic plucks and kitchen-sink noises to fading strums and a grinding halt on Broken Beak’s new release, Some Nerve. Beau Brynes, along with bandmates Brendan Lukens (Modern Baseball), Evan Clark Moorehead (Weller), and Jeff Malt, will be celebrating its release tonight at PhilaMOCA, as part of their 2016 summer tour. They’ll be joined by Portland, OR outfits Blowout, a powerhouse of sound and fury, and Walter etc., a folk-punk collective that is not afraid to have fun, and drag you kicking and screaming along. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, $8, All Ages - Keith Kelley





Slight bring their fuzz soaked power pop to Silent Barn on 8.21

While the members of Slight have been busy playing in Painted Zeros, LVL UP, and Normal Person, the trio has managed to find the time to drop two EPs and a single in the span of a year. In the fall of 2015 they released their sophomore EP Hate The Summer, which improved on of their 2014 single Runsoaking their catchy power pop melodies in guitar fuzz. In title-track Hate the Summer the band's fragile vocals, somewhat reminiscent of The Lemonheads, draw memorable pop hooks, while exploding guitars in the choruses channel the raw energy of rock'n'roll. Slight will be playing the Silent Barn on August 21st. - John Honan, photo by Stephanie Griffin

Deer Scout Opening for Kississippi at PhilaMOCA Aug. 18

Deer Scout celebrates the tape release of Customs (Fox Food Records) with a show this evening at PhilaMOCA. Dena Miller’s bedroom-folk narratives are depicted through a keenly observational perspective. Those unencumbered recollections place one inside personal memories. At times, she appears to be addressing the listener, while at others, she’s recalling and exploring internal contemplations, flipping the microscope on herself. Enthralling literary lyricism meets the strength and sincerity of vocal delivery, navigating on closely knit intrepid daydream-folk instrumentation, Kississippi grabs one’s attention, refusing to let go. The instantly invigorating power-pop of Brooklyn’s Fits and the synth-infused bedroom-pop of Boosegumps round out this lineup. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita





Secret Crush brings their brand of shoegaze to Berlin 8/27

Secret Crush deals up sleepy but fun shoegaze propelled by infectious grooves. The vocals of the Bushwick-based group sound as if filtered through one of those low-power FM radio, and are set above dreamy, fuzzy guitars that are more playful than lofty. Their newly released EP, Birth, blends a strong garage-pop feel into the mix, and conveys to the tracks' swirling melodies a dance-y beat that's easy to latch on to. You can check out Secret Crush at Berlin playing with Beechwood on Aug 27th, but in the meantime take a listen at our favorite song 'Psychic Companion,' streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni





Eric Slick Opening for Ahleuchatistas at JB's Aug. 16

Eric Slick has always held things down on the skins for bands like Dr. Dog, Nightlands, Norwegian Arms, and The Adrian Belew Trio. And with Lithuania, he has certainly been building his comfort level and experience, enjoying the warmth of lights from the front of the stage. Slick recently dropped a new solo track called, "No," a tasty, pop morsel of disenchantment that's off his upcoming album, Palisades. Tonight, he'll be opening for avant-rock Asheville, NC duo Ahleuchatistas and Mary Lattimore at Johnny Brenda's. Also along for the odd, sonic adventure is Shimmer. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
