Ok folks nothing like some good friendly competition to bring you some really great music and a guaranteed fun time. This Thursday May 21 kicks off the first round of Battle Of The Blogs sponsored by Heyday Entertainment and five of Philly’s favorite music bloggers, Girl About Town, The Broken BellPopwreckoningTeenage Kicks, and yours truly, Bag Of Songs.

It’s sort of a battle of the bands and blogs all rolled into one. One Thursday each month in May, June, and July each blog will showcase their selection of bands with the winning bands/blogs competing in a finals on a Saturday night in August, all at the North Star Bar.

May is Girl About Town vs The Broken Bell vs Bag Of Songs
June is Bag of Songs vs Popwreckoning vs Teenage Kicks
July is a four band/blog night with Popwreckoning vs Teenage Kicks vs The Broken Bell vs Girl About Town

August will be the three winning bands/blogs from each of the nights as voted by the attendees each night.

For this week’s show I will be bringing you The Shots, while The Broken Bell will have River City Extension and Girl About Town will present Robes.

I’ve talked up The Shots before but I’ll do it again. Anchored by the guitar virtuosity of Alex Blyksun and the rock solid solid bass playing of Colt Morris, they dig deep into the bluesy soul of rock and roll for a live sound that’s can best be described as part ’69 era Led Zeppelin, part Oasis, and part Live At Leeds era The Who.  If you’ve seen them recently you know how good they are, if you haven’t, be sure to get on down the North Star this Thursday and witness it first hand.

Here’s a few songs to give a taste of what they’re all about, but trust me when I say these don’t really do justice to the raw power of their live show.

The Shots – The Worth
The Shots – Stand Up For Your Loving
The Shots – Do Me Wrong
