The hardcore kids gathered at the TLA on Sunday for a night of head banging and moshing. To many people’s dismay, the original openers, Backtrack, dropped the tour for personal reasons right before the show.
Hundredth started the show with “Carry On,” from their 2011 album Let Go. The band pumped everyone up with their classic quick rhythm and lead singer Chadwick Johnson spent a lot of time in the security pit, singing with the fans against the barricade. Read more…
The writing is on the walls.
Only on Weekends‘ basement practice space makes it easy to discern some of their greatest influences: framed album art, event posters and concert tickets from Saves the Day, Something Corporate and Brand New.
There is however, quite a bit more to say. Cherry Hill pop punkers Harry Rose, Jes Clark and Anthony Dandrea are proud to boast not only being influenced by the likes of said bands but also being produced by one of the most influential artists of the genre.
Working with Fred Mascherino, formerly of Taking Back Sunday, The Color Fred and Breaking Pangea and current Terrible Things frontman and touring lead guitarist for Say Anything, is certainly a major highlight in the band’s history. Read more…
The multi-talented Dewey Decibel (who raps as well as does illustrations) will open the show.

Here’s a Marian Hill video by our friends at Out of Town Films.
The room was empty, occupied only by floating jazz melodies and setting sunlight muffled by the shades. Aisha Winfield had called a friend that morning and the front section of the restaurant was hers. The texts went out around lunch time: “Can you meet me at Relish at 6:30 p.m.?”
It was a fast plan that was executed smoothly, business as usual. Winfield is the executive director of Jr. Music Executive, the program she founded in 2004, with the mission of teaching young people how to navigate the music business. In its 10th year, the non-profit organization hosts workshops, plans concerts and has worked with hundreds of students. And they have done it all without a home base.
“We have met in some pretty interesting locations,” Winfield reflects. “Churches, office spaces, art studios. It’s about practicing flexibility. I can call and say, ‘I have 10 students and we need to be able to have a meeting or a show.’”
Today, they are announcing that they will make up the date on April 21st, performing at the TLA.
Liam Tinney is soft-spoken and almost drowned out by the music at Spruce Street Harbor Park. He intermittently takes sips from his beer while talking about the music that he and his friends make as the catchy indie rock band Spotted Atrocious. It’s fitting to talk here since so much of their material has been written close to water and usually over beers.
“After I graduated from college, I just said, ‘Let’s all take a week at Deep Creek Lake and just play,’” Tinney recalls of the trip to Maryland the band took in May to write new material and record demos, just as they had also done for their first release, Temporary Fix. “We jammed a lot, we made a lot of headway and we decided to do it again and pumped out some new songs. It was really natural this time, which was really satisfying.”
