Hey, the Eagles game will be over, so come on out and celebrate the win(or drown your sorrows, if thats’s the case) with some excellent live music tonight.  And since Monday is a day off for most people there’s really no “…but it’s a Sunday night, I have to work tomorrow” excuse to use. So let’s rock.

Kicking it off tonight with Philadelphia’s Curious Buddies, Steve Shwill and Steve Deal meld a swirling blend of guitar,bass and synthesizers over drummer Dylan’s, rhythmic percussive backbeat to create a sound that falls somewhere between 70’s punk icons Television or Richard Hell and modern day indie rockers like Modest Mouse and The National.

In the middle slot tonight will be Brooklyn’s Bridges And Powerlines whose album Ghost Types was produced by Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav, Asobi Seksu, White Rabbits) andreleased mid 2008 to universal acclaim, even prompting blog Ryan’s Smashing Life to proclaim them One of the most talented young groups on the East Coast”, a title well deserved. Keyboardist and vocalist Andrew Wood, bassist Keith Sigel, guitarist and vocalist David Boyd, and drummer Pete Mucek will have you hooked from the word go with their intelligent,synth fueled indie pop.

Closing the night out will be Philadelphia’s The Skyler King fusing the folky acoustic guitars and keyboards of Gerald King and Skyler Thornton with the stand up bass of The Wizard and Mofa’s powerhouse drumming into a mix that runs the gamut from the lilting country folk of Red Horse Rider to the snarling rhythmic Tweeker Girl.  A show you don’t want to miss for sure.
