KeN
KeN
Philly rock god/desses KeN make a public rare appearance in August, channelling their raw natural desire to kick some rock and roll ass. With two full-lengths under their belt, and dozens of shows over the years, KeN has been described as "sweetly bitter punk love anthems" (Jill McDowell, Philadelphia Weekly); "estro-gin power collective" (Joey Sweeney, Philadelphia Weekly); "straight-up-shoot-from-the-hip-rock-outfit" (Julie Gerstein, Philadelphia Weekly); and "Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! With a capital A, A, A!!"
Howling Fantods
Howling Fantods are from South Philadelphia. Their songs go like this: quiet, quiet, LOUD, LOUD. Or alternately, like this: LOUD, LOUD, LOUDER. Most of the songs are pretty fast. But not all of them. It's fair to say they are a punk band. It's also fair to say that they are too old for this sort of thing. It's ALSO also fair to say that they are entirely interested in rocking your face off and not at all interested in any other aspect of being a band.
Taggart
Taggart
Philadelphia Weekly recently described Taggart as “harking back to underground rock’s golden age during the half-decade leading up to Nevermind. The guitars are sweet and crunchy like super sugar crisp, purveying tasty hooks coated in distortion and jagged edges with gruff, half-yelped vocals reminiscent of Eric Bachmann (Archers of Loaf)”. A band for over 15 years Taggart has released four full length records and has been featured on numerous compilations. In recent years they’ve opened for some of their biggest influences, including Portastatic and Tommy Stinson, and even acted as Grant Hart’s backing band on a few Husker Du songs.
