/// About the line-up…

Mr. Pharmacist: Notebooks out! 30+ album repertoire. No matter if you don’t know what they borrow from, they make the songs their own. If you’re familiar, you know. – As John Peel famously said (don’t look it up): “If you’re a fan of The Fall, you’re most certainly an acolyte of Mr. Pharmacist.” – A Pharmacist show is consistently jaw(bone)-drop inducing. Dance-frenzy-making. Lead singer stays onstage for entire set. What more could you possibly want?

Secret Wars: (Us.) Scrappy post-punk [inasmuch as that means, 2019.] Fond of influence, maintain singularity. Propagation of “friendly ear sounds” amongst fearsome noise. Frequently hummable, often not. Personality-rich. Over-wordy. Cursed to live in interesting times.

The Mean: Teethy synths, inescapable hooks, dangerous anthems. Direct & uncompromising, The Mean command attention live + on artifact. As we speak, in metamorphosis. Recently of self-titled Extended-Play. Thereafter reinvented. This is the very first and only opportunity to see what has not yet been seen. See it!

NOTHING
[PHILADELPHIA SHOEGAZERS]
[RELAPSE RECORDS]
https://www.bandofnothing.com/
https://nothing.bandcamp.com/
The story of NOTHING began in 2010 with a simple demo tape in a Philadelphia apartment. The project, which started as a therapeutic outlet solely for Palermo, snowballed into a polished machine with a chance meeting with guitarist/singer Brandon Setta and the eventual addition of Kyle Kimball on drums. Sharing a musical bond, the trio weaved melancholic tales of imprisonment, broken bonds and lost youth as the centerpiece for their 2014 debut, Guilty Of Everything. The world post Guilty served as the focus for the entirety of 2016’s Tired Of Tomorrow – painting a Schopenhauerian tragedy in vivid color and sound.
Dance on the Blacktop is the next chapter of NOTHING’s story and like its predecessors, pulls from all corners of life in its contents. Stories of self loathing, self destruction, and a general disdain for humanity and its, “insignificant” role in Palermo’s vision of the universe are met with his poised amusement and tranquil hysteria being one himself. All of this told through the eyes of a recently diagnosed Palermo suggesting he is dealing with the early stages of CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), a neurodegenerative disease found in people with serious head injuries. And as they packed themselves in a coffin-sized NYC apartment for 23 days to demo songs it became abundantly clear that the ripple effect left upon his psyche from dealing with these newfound symptoms would leave its mark on the material.
