This event is all ages
After nearly two years working at Head Room Studios in North Philly arts space Big Mama's House, local art-pop trio Hop Along wrapped up work on its next full length album, Get Disowned, just last week. On Sunday, singer-guitarist Frances Quinlan announced on the band's Tumblr "OUR NEW ALBUM IS DONE (and I am delirious)"; she appeared after-hours on WKDU to chat and premier the album version of "Tibetian Pop Stars", and last night, the band posted the track as a free download on its Bandcamp page. It's a kind of epic collision of the band's preferred styles: overdriven punk, singalong folk and hooky pop.
The Sidekicks are a punk band from Cleveland, Ohio. They are currently signed to Red Scare.

"This week in my Local Spotlight I wanted to highlight a band that I found opening for Transit at the University of New Haven this past semester that really stood out to me. It was a high energy and quirky trio that went by the name of Two Humans; an alt rock group hailing from Wethersfield,CT. I was quickly introduced to the group as they began their set one frosty February night. They chose to set up their equipment on the floor rather than the stage to get very up close and personal with the crowd. Lead singer Jason Rule was running around the floor like it was lava, his energy was just unreal. I was hooked; the fact that they brought such excitement and liveliness to an otherwise dead crowd that night, you could not help but give them that energy back. Though I went into their set not knowing a single song, I was dancing and grinning along the whole time. They’re the kind of opening act that you HAVE to look up when you get home because you can’t get their songs out of your head."
