"Be Cool" w/Seismic Thrust at Hong Kong Garden Jan. 10

The luridly named Seismic Thrust are something straight out of the 90's neo-psychedelia movement. Holding influences from The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (without the propensity for long-winded names) close to their chests, Seismic Thrust carries you back to the subcultural tradition of gritty, drug-fueled Americana. Their sound ranges from body to head high - think Take It From The Man to Methodrone - the former taking the shape of old, dusty, culturally ingrained garage and blues melodies, and breathing fresh smoke into their lungs. The result is scruffy-edged, paisley-through-dark-glasses music that knows it’s too cool for school. In other tunes, Seismic Thrust swaps their shuffling rhythm and grounded tones for a hazy drone that suspends the movement of the set and drops some Visine in your third eye. How bout that? Seismic Thrust will be playing Hong Kong Garden tonight accompanied by Emmett Drueding, who follows in the same vein of American grit. Also performing on the bill will be Dead, the token weirdo-rockers of the night, and Buffalo Tomoreaux. Hong Kong Garden, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, $5, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock


Former Belle Capture a Space Deep Within at Mantua Yacht Club Jan. 9

Led by Bruno Catrambone (CRUISR), Former Belle creates a sonic setting that lingers, staying within a memorable manner. These songs capture a space deep within, as their uninhibited folk honesty hits the back of ones neck, sending a haunting shiver up the spine. However, while hitting emotion at its core, there remains a free sense of moment that brightens the creaky corners. Now, as they work on (and hopefully) reveal new material tonight, Former Belle enters Mantua Yacht Club. South Jersey’s Pine Barons develop experiment through a balance of folk simplicity, elevated with polished/customized harmonies that shift dynamics from a cruising movement to a controlled push that shakes the standard foundation. Local punk four-piece Stay at Home Dad and Heads On Sticks, which includes Darla’s Brendan Monahan, as well as Great Space complete the lineup. Mantua Yacht Club, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, $5, All Ages - Michael Colavita


Weekend Warrior, January 8 - 10

Brought to you by End Result Productions & WKDU in conjunction with R5 Productions and the First Unitarian Church is Blistering Ephemera II. The all-day music showcase this Saturday features national touring acts like Xiu Xiu (who will be playing Philly for the first time in four years), Providence, RI political sax punks Downtown Boys, and PC Worship. You’ll also find a slew of local acts earlier in the day. Slow Animal is certainly playing way earlier than I’d like. I also saw what I’m hoping to be a bad joke – “Maybe our last show ever???????” – on their FB page and their lack of shows lately makes me wonder so you’ve been warned. Other Philly folks include lo-fi, freak darling Kate Ferencz, art-pop trio Banned Books, hardcore punks Disinterest, and many more. Get it while the gettin’s good! First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 4pm, $12 - $20, All Ages - Alexis V.
