Hey Philadelphia music fans you’ll want to be sure not to miss this week’s Wednesday Night’s FREE Concert In The Park at Rittenhouse Square with Gildon Works and Capitol Years. Gildon Works just released an amazing new CD called Artful Rifle and also turned in one of the best sets at this year’s Philly Popped! Festival. Capitol Years are a long time Philly favorite and recently backed up Daniel Johnston on a number of his tour dates. Should be a fantastic night of music for a summer evening.
And be sure to come back in upcoming weeks as there are plenty more great nights lined up with Bitter Bitter Weeks, Jotto and more coming your way.

7-9PM Wednesday nights in Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.

This past Thursday at Johnny Brenda’s was another display of the amazing musical force that is currently swirling in Philadelphia. The A-Sides were celebrating the release of their brand new Vagrant Records CD Silver Storms (rls date 9/18/07) and brought The Capitol Years and Bitter Bitter Weeks along for the ride. It was a packed house for an all around astounding night of music kicked off with one of the best sets I’ve seen Bitter Bitter Weeks play yet. Capitol Years were up next, my first time seeing them and they were phenomenal, closing their set with a version of the George Harrison song Wah Wah including the addition of 7 or 8 special guests on stage to help out. Wow. Then came The A-Sides. I had seen the A-Sides play a somewhat disappointing set due to muddy sound problems a couple weeks back at the XPoNential Music Fest, but there were no problems Thursday night, and they delivered all I could have expected and more, encoring with a loose yet faithful version of Springsteen‘s Backstreets Here’s some photos of the fun.
