Some pictures from last Friday night’s amazing show at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. Greyhounds kicked off the night in true rock and roll style opening their set with a snippet of Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness On The Edge of Town which they seamlessy segued into their first song of the night. Drink Up Buttercup were up next, delivering a set of the psychedelic tinged rock circus that has been garnering them numerous accolades as of late. They ended their set by doing their last two songs in the audience with everyone clapping, stomping and singing along. Seattle’s BOAT follwed, their sound is somewhat like a power pop version of Pavement. They had a fun time bantering with the crowd and even brought one heckler/audience member down from the balcony to play tambourine on a song with them. Creeping Weeds closed the night with a stellar set of old and new songs and even worked in their cover of BOAT‘s I’m A Donkey For Your Love which BOAT did not play earlier. Do not miss the BOAT/Creeping Weeds tour if it heads your way this week.
