This event is 21 and over
Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Nick Cave and Howlin' Wolf. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres.
For years, Philadelphia's The Lawsuits have been known for a
sound that cannot be pigeonholed into one genre. There is something to
be said about a band that has been creating music together as long as
The Lawsuits have. With that longevity comes a sort of comfort and
understanding for both themselves, and the listener. "Moon Son", the
band's second full length release, and Randm Records debut, showcases
years of blending each other's influences and sounds to create
something wholly their own. They have spent their music careers up to
this point dipping their toes in multiple sounds and styles to create
this very identity. With a nostalgic nod to the greats of the past and
a dash of modern productions and self-awareness, laced with sweeping
harmonies: this is The Lawsuits.
Formed after songwriter Brian Dale Allen Strouse was introduced to
vocalist Vanessa Winters & bassist Brendan Cunningham through a mutual
friend, The Lawsuits then recruited fellow Temple alum, drummer Josh
Friedman. Their 2013 release, 'Cool Cool Cool', was produced by Bill
Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), and garnered attention from outlets such
as Rolling Stone, Spin, Paste & Philadelphia’s WXPN. The album's first
single, 'Onion', was chosen as #22 of Daytrotter's 300 Best Songs of
The Dawn Drapes
The Dawn Drapes make thoughtful indie pop music with a psychedelic tinge.
Inspired by melody, harmony, and groove driven rhythm, Michael Sanzo and Daniel Rice penned their first release as The Dawn Drapes in 2014. Their roots in American and British folk music drive their songwriting style, while their musical influences range vastly from Alex Chilton and The Replacements to Animal Collective and Pink Floyd.
Deep grooves, smart hooks, and thoughtful vocal harmonies shine through, rounding out their full and balanced sound from song to shimmering song.
