#LMF2014 And A Hell of a Weekend

- The past 5 days have been blur. A whirlwind of music, information, networking, drinking, and fun. The 3rd Annual Liberty Music Fest, #LMF2014, is now over and some thank you’s are in order.   First and foremost, thank you to Jim and Vince of DVT Events. Thank you to Brian and Jodie of THAT Mag, Unclaimed Bands, the staff at Finnigan’s Wake and to all of the sponsors of the event. These guys worked their asses off for months to put this event together, and it showed. The entire #LMF2014 was incredibly organized and professional, especially considering the amount of moving parts to this thing. This is an incredibly important event, and those listed above cannot get enough credit for what they put together.   I would be writing all afternoon if I were to mention the standout performances at #LMF2014. Thank you to everyone who attended and performed at our #LMF2014 open jam Wednesday night. The biggest problem I had over the course of the event was trying to decide which stage watch and when over the course of the 5 days. The panels were very informative, and it was great to see the amount of musicians who came early to learn little something.   Can you believe Unclaimed Bands did 60+ interviews during #LMF2014?! You can get to know almost every performer this year over on their Facebook page.   Thank you Broken Goblet for the free beer! Awesome new craft beer in the area, and they provided a few kegs for free during the networking segments.   Do you know what else happened this weekend? Rodger Delany had his last show in the area (along with a great lineup) over at World Cafe Live. Sparklefight had their CD Release at Connie’s Ric Rac, and Gravity Given / Forward productions put together a hell of a lineup at Dockside Bar. All of these events were packed on the same night. I think that says a lot about the current state of the Philadelphia music scene. We have an abundance of talented people in the city, and then scene is just getting stronger and stronger.   So congrats to everyone involved, and thank you for an awesome weekend. I know there are plenty of people I forgot to mention in here, but I’m working on about 12 hours sleep over the last 5 days, so bare with me. Because of the crazy week, and the holiday weekend ahead, this week’s featured band will just be all the bands that played #LMF2014 over the weekend.   Looking forward to next year already!      

Budweiser’s #MadeinAmericaFest August 30th & 31st

-   For the third consecutive year Budweiser is bringing the #MadeinAmericaFest back to Philadelphia. This festival takes place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and it’s probably the biggest lineup in Philadelphia all year.   This year’s lineup includes Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Tiesto, The National, Steve Aoki, Pharrell Williams, J. Cole, Girl Talk, Spoon, Chromeo, City and Colour, Grimes, AWOLNATION, R3HAB, Gareth Emery, De La Soul, Baauer, Tommy Trash, Mayer Hawthorne, Kongos, 3LAU, The Neighborhood, Danny Brown, YG, Holy Ghost, Penguin Prison, Destructo, Bleachers, DJ Cassidy, Cherub, Will Sparks, Young & Sick, Vacationer, Cut Snake, and Kaneholler.   For many of the artists, this is their only Philadelphia appearance for quite some time. Spoon, for example, have  new album out and this will be their only tour date in Philadelphia. They are without question my favorite band on the lineup but with this caliber of artists, there really is something for everyone. There’s also something very unique about this year’s Budweiser #MadeinAmericaFest. This will be the first American festival to run simultaneously on both coasts! While we are enjoying that excellent lineup listed above, there is an equally impressive lineup happening in Los Angeles. In fact, it looks as though Kanye West will be making an appearance at both festivals.   The Budweiser #MadeinAmericaFest benefits the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and United Way of Lancaster County. Cause Village Vendors also include Shawn Carter Foundation, Headcount/NAACP, Budweiser Veterans, Donda House (Kanye West’s charity), St. Jude Hospital (Kings of Leon supported charity), Partners in Health (The National), World Childhood Foundation (Tiesto), Philly Paws, Drive Change, Born this Way Foundation, Why Hunger, and Mural Arts.   Tickets for the Festival can be purchased as either a single day ticket, or a 2-day pass: – 2 day tickets for PHILLY – single day ticket for PHILLY – August 30 – single day ticket for PHILLY – August 31 For more information on which artists are playing on which day, visit the Budweiser Made in America Festival website. So, after taking a look at this lineup in Philadelphia, which artist are you most excited to see this year? While this is a sponsored post, the opinions in the article are genuinely Gashouse Radio.

Sonnder – CD Release This Saturday

- This week’s featured band, Sonnder, have a brand new album coming out this week, and we’re celebrating this Saturday night at Dockside Bar!   Sonnder is a relatively new band in the Philadelphia music scene. They started last year, and quickly found their spot in the scene. We’ve been spinning their original demo for a few months and even had them in-studio for an acoustic session. Recently we’ve added their first single from the new album, Thief, and that is available on Bandcamp and all songs mentioned above will be in heavy rotation all week, and always available by request.   Sonnder has a very busy week coming up. Thursday, August 21st, tune in to Gashouse Live as we welcome Sonnder back in the studio. Rather than another acoustic session, we are going to get a  first listen to the new album. The following night the band will be featured on Radio 104.5 and then Saturday, August 23rd is the big show at Dockside.   Join us Saturday at Dave & Buster’s Dockside Bar for Sonnder, Awake At Last, An Honest Year, Could’ve Been Kings, Awaking Mercury and Rivers Monroe. This is an all ages show, tickets are $10 and doors open at 6pm. We’ve booked Sonnder in the past at one of our showcases at Connie’s Ric Rac, and the band did not disappoint. Sonnder is a great live band with a lot of energy. This is going to be a great night of music, and it’s your chance to pick up the new Sonnder album!   So tune in all week, to hear Sonnder in heavy rotation. Tune in Thursday to hear a sneak peak at the new album. And while you’re listening, like them on Facebook. Let’s see if we can help them hit 1ooo likes before the show this Saturday at Dockside Bar!
