This Radiant Boy

This Radiant Boy

Having retired in the summer of '06 with a sweaty, beer soaked party at Ye Olde Khyber, This Radiant Boy has decided to join their powers for a special ONE TIME ONLY reunion gig at Johnny Brenda's. The unique power-pop of Mike Guggino, Rick Hass. Adam Herndon, Brian "Bucky" Lang, & Dan Verechia will bring you back to a time when MySpace ruled, RayBans were not yet back in style, and the word Twitter didn't exist.


"JJL is the new project from Philadelphia based singer/guitarist Jay Laughlin best know for his work with his past bands Lenola and Like A Fox. JJL is a three piece band featuring Jay on vocals/guitar backed with the ex-Like A Fox rhythm section of Pete Girgenti on drums and Brian Wilknson on bass. This is just another step forward in the long journey Jay has taken in his past bands where a foundation of rock-solid songwriting is married to Technicolor production resulting in satisfaction for the soul and brilliant sonic candy for the ears. The vocals float and soar while effected keyboards & buzzsaw guitars guide the songs along a happily disorienting ride, all above a massive sounding rhythm section. JJL is an adherence to to song tradition while also sounding like it's being beamed back to you from the future, covered in beautiful static and gloss.

A proper full length is in the works, This show is a chance to get a sneak peek at what's to come!"

Dragon City

As mysterious as they were loud, Dragon City once played many a show in the fair city of Philadelphia. With warm blankets of fuzz and an androgynous squeak, these four old friends will celebrate their short career and their early 20's with a final show after 6 long years (or was it 8?). Featuring future members of Wasn't Wisn't and a Sunny Day in Glasgow. One free copy of our album will be offered to any poor soul in attendance. Please be prompt.



All shows are 21+ Proper I.D. required for admission
