This Past Friday Night’s Show with The Swimmers.Missing Palmer West and Bitter Bitter Weeks @ Johnny Brenda’s
Filed under: Uncategorized
Some photos from this past Friday night’s all local show at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. It was a packed house from the get go as Bitter Bitter Weeks kicked off the night with an excellent set that focused on the more rock side of their catalog and left the quieter numbers at home this time for a high energy set that recalled at times the southern jangle sound of early REM or Let’s Active. Up next was Missing Palmer West, a band who I somehow managed to have not seen until now, let me say I will be correcting that mistake go forward. Their keyboard driven, cello infused blend of indie pop is excellent. They have a new EP in the works and it is one I will be on the watch for. BOS favorites The Swimmers closed the night and threw a bit of multimedia effects into the mix this time out as they played while a film rolled on to the giant screen behind them. Their set was a blend of brand new songs and old favorites and also included a blistering cover of David Bowie’s Star.
Big big thanks to my new friend and fellow music fanatic Phil Appenzeller for all of the photos.
