Intern Bree’s Weekend Picks (and More): The New York Edition.

July 5, 2012

Every Thursday, our JUMP mag intern, Bree Wood, offers her suggestions for fun Philly music stuff for the upcoming weekend (and more).

New York comes to Philly this week.  Indie, hardcore and punk music – whatever you are into – you can find these bands playing your kind of music this week in Philly.

FRIDAY

Lemuria plays The Barbary with Ma Jolie and Nona

Lemuria (above) is a longtime favorite of mine. They are a three-piece indie rock band from Buffalo, NY, fronted by singers Alex Kerns and Sheena Ozzella.

SATURDAY

I Am the Avalanche plays at The Trocadero opening for MxPx

I love Brooklyn-based I Am the Avalanche singer Vinnie Caruana’s voice. My friend makes fun of me because whenever I break up with a boyfriend, she can hear me coming down the street blaring their album. Their music is relatable, which is why I think people like them. If you enjoy I Am the Avalanche, you should check out Caruana’s previous Long Island-based band, Movielife.

Reagan Youth plays Kung Fu Necktie with Dust Angel, Population Zero, Toxic Life and the Underachievers

Reagan Youth is a political hardcore punk band from NYC that started in the 80s. Guitarist Paul Cripple is the last remaining original member but it’s always great to see an influential band that still plays today. Plus, local hardcore heroes Population Zero always put on a great show.

SUNDAY

One Win Choice with The Wild, The Taxpayers and Cayetano at The Golden Tea House

No New York acts playing this show (haven’t you had enough?) but I put it up because it’s all D.I.Y. with great bands. Philly’s own One Win Choice is just back from touring Europe. Cayetano is a new Philly band made up of three women. Every band in the show has a different sound but is in the hardcore to punk range. If you like that style, I’m sure you will enjoy the show. This venue is run on donations. Support The Golden Tea House so they can continue to put on shows!
