On Saturday, PhilaMOCA hosted Conversations, who celebrated the release of their new album, Totally Redeem Yourself.

Joe Jack Talcum from legendary punk band Dead Milkmen opened up the night with a solo set of Philly punk favorites. Talcum then stuck around while Dogs on Acid and Conversations rocked their sets.

Dogs on Acid kept the crowd warm with a short set that helped build the anticipation for Conversations’ performance.

It wasn’t long before tunes from Totally Redeem Yourself, meandered through the intimate space and pushed people to lighten up and bust a move.

Crowd members were personally invited to move a little closer to the stage once the band, formerly known as Conversations with Enemies, graced the stage. After a few tracks from the new record, the band performed covers of Radiohead’s “Creep and Beastie Boy’s “Fight For Your Right,” amping up the crowd even more.

It is obvious that this group was meant to entertain. Their presence immediately loosened up the audience. If there is one word to describe this group it would be FUN. Standing still while listening to this four-piece crew is not an option.
