Holy Golden, Secret Nudist Friends
1100 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA, 19107
This event is 21 and over
Holy Golden is the multifaceted musical world of Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti. From euphoric dream-pop to lo-fi garage rock, their sound is refreshingly dynamic while maintaining an unparalleled specificity. Holy Golden's creative process is a labyrinthian breadcrumb trail fueled by their deepest sorrows and brightest fantasies, which ultimately leads them towards their imaginative kingdom of sound.
The two met serendipitously during a full moon lunar eclipse on the island of Martha's Vineyard. They recorded their first two albums in Los Angeles and Detroit and are now recording their upcoming album from a haunted ballroom in Rhode Island.
Secret Nudist Friends
Secret Nudist Friends is a psych/garage power trio out of Philadelphia with strong ties to the Brooklyn scene. Their sound is the love child of 60s rock and the modern garage revival, while constantly being inspired by the sounds coming out of Philly and Brooklyn.
CLOAKZ is the brainchild of Zachary Ciancaglini. The multi-instrumentalist relocated to Philadelphia in the fall of 2014 and quickly started to construct his first batch of songs. The freshmen EP "Semi-Autographic" is a quick testament to Ciancaglini's garage/pop/rock nature.
South Jersey native gone Brooklyn/Philly transplant, Zac frequents NYC with Brooklyn garage rockers Raccoon Fighter. But CLOAKZ is Ciancaglini's first attempt at stepping away from behind the drums and exposing himself as a songwriter.
Drawing influences from 90s outfits like Built To Spill, MBV, Spiritualized, blended with more modern acts like Ty Segall and The War on Drugs, Ciancaglini has a sound that is familiar yet refreshingly new. Loud & fuzzed out guitars forged with tasteful rhythmic grooves, topped with layers of noise and sprinkled with raw vocals, your CLOAKZ ice-cream cone is everything you'd want on a hot summer day.
