2639 Poplar St
Philadelphia, PA, 19130
This event is 21 and over
Hailing from Trenton, NJ, Honah Lee was formed in 2008 by a group of hardworking and harder-partying musicians native to the area. Specializing in an infectious brand of powerpop-punk akin to an early 90’s Lookout Records sound soaked in the boozey haze of the Replacements, Honah Lee’s live performances are an intoxicating (in more ways than one) celebration of music and mayhem. Constantly on the road, the four boys of Honah Lee – singer/guitarist Tim, bassist Jim, lead guitarist Dim, and drummer Tony G – have also issued a steady stream of recordings, including the GTG-released Life Won’t Let Me in June 2011.
Honah Lee has toured nationally, sharing a stage with the Foxboro Hot Tubs (a side project of Green Day), The Queers, Jello Biafra, Local H, Mystic Knights of the Cobra, and Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers, just to name a few. They have received airplay on both commercial, college, and internet radio and have been featured on numerous compilations. Honah Lee plans to hit the road hard and truly appreciates any support they can get.
Ballroom Spies is a alt rock act with a veteran roster hailing from Philadelphia. An appreciation for all genres of music hold the band together, though the end result is something all their own. The band met on account of their love of live performance since a multitude of their previous projects crossed paths in the past. Ballroom Spies released their debut self-titled album in December of 2012.
"So what does Mad Anthony play exactly? From its volume and breakneck vigor, it's Punk, pure and simple, but there is so much more at work here. Vocalist/guitarist Ringo Jones is like Iggy Pop channeling the spirit of Mississippi John Hurt in a Dead Boys tribute, screaming until the veins in his neck stand out like bridge cable under his skin. When Jones and guitarist/vocalist Adam Flaig start trading riffs, there's a galloping rhythm that suggests Dave Alvin in his seminal Blasters days with a live power line down his trousers. And the rhythm section of power bassist Dave Markey and new drummer Marc Sherlock is thunder personified... If you see the name Mad Anthony on a telephone pole, get the information and get there. It will change you." (MPMF Bio)
