Bosom Band – Yes Ma’am Show this Friday
This week’s featured artist is Bosom Band, and they are a part of the Yes Ma’am show this Friday at Connie’s Ric Rac!
Bosom Band are an unmistakable band in the Gashouse Radio rotation. Their bluesy sound is unlike any other we play. The music is classic, and the vocals grabs everyone by surprise. Anytime I’ve ever played a Bosom Band track for anyone, the first thing that strikes them is Monica’s voice. Powerful, sultry vocals reminiscent of the original blues voice of 20′s and 30′s.
And often times you will hear Bosom Band covering some of these old tunes, which fits in a set of their original songs like a glove. We’ve seen Bosom Band a few times and they never disappoint. They’ve been one of the many bands to come in studio for an acoustic set, and one track from that set ended up on our Acoustic Compilation Volume 1. Those acoustic tracks along with songs from their album Autumn Comes are always available to request, and they will be in heavy rotation all this week.
I highly recommend you come out to Connie’s Ric Rac this Friday night for the Yes Ma’am Show! This show will be all female-fronted bands including Bosom Band, Sucker, Little War Twins (Boston) and Every Heard. The show is 21+ and $8 at the door. This is a great lineup and a great place to see a show.
So tune in all week to hear Bosom Band in heavy rotation. Catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET). And join us this Friday at Connie’s Ric Rac!
July 26th: Rage on the River
Where will you be this Saturday night? We will be at Dave & Buster’s Dockside Bar. It’s an amazing place to see a show in the summer time, and its ALL AGES:
If you are a regular listener of Gashouse Radio, then I don’t need to tell you how great this impressive lineup. Bong Hits for Jesus, Midnight Mosaic, and The Jawn are all regular fixtures in the Gashouse Radio rotation. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Aquatic Ape Theory, Still Moon and Universal Funk Order. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.
Please note the early door time. This show starts at 6pm so that we can fit so many great bands into 1 night. It’s $10 at the door, it’s all-ages, and it’s ging to be a great night outside on the river.
Join us! And RSVP to the Facebook event page
Hard Rock Cafe & DCS Present The Five Dollar Festival with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, The Manhattan Project, & More
On August 16, 2014 Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia & DCS Concerts will host a “festival-style” concert featuring a stacked lineup including Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (Rochester, NY), The Manhattan Project (Rochester, NY), Fear Nuttin Band (Boston, MA), The Underwater Sounds (Philadelphia, PA), and Reef’d (Philadelphia, PA).
“The goal of this event is to provide a stellar show at a low cost to concertgoers and fans.” says Ben Davis, president of DCS Concerts and talent buyer for Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia.
The lineup is solid, a bill that should cost $12 or $15; but on August 16 at Hard Rock its only $5!
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (PANDA!) is a quintet from Rochester, NY. Their psychedelic roots reggae album “In These Times” made iTunes Best of 2012 list. Over the past six years, PANDA! has performed 800 shows, put out a collection of live albums, and released a roots Americana record titled “Country” (2012).
The Manhattan Project
Since exploding on to the scene in 2010, The Manhattan Project has become one of the fastest growing live electronic duos in the northeast and beyond. TMP continues their sonic-boomtronic assault in 2014, blowing up clubs, amphitheaters, festival main stages, and after-parties across the country! Drawing influences from house, dub, drum n bass, techno, and lounge, The Manhattan Project brings sophistication to the dance floor with their original compositions, high energy beats and mind melting textures. Armed with an arsenal of keyboards, synths, electronic and acoustic percussion, they seamlessly merge analog and digital sounds without the use of on-stage computers, resulting in a sonic style all their own.
Fear Nuttin Band
The Fear Nuttin Band sound is as diverse as the cultures the band members represent. The hot West Indian sun incubated the talents of frontmen Roosta (vocals), Prowla (vocals) and Jay Chung (guitar), while instrumentalists Matt Penza (drums), Chris Regan (guitar), Brian Daigle (bass) represent New England’s finest. The union of these six individuals was in the stars: with Chris, Jay, Penza and Brian lending their musical talents to heavy bands all over the Pioneer Valley, the four always found themselves in and out of bands together. It was the same day that Matt, Chris and Brian found themselves without a frontman that Roosta and Prowla called up and asked them to jam. These final Fear Nuttin Band members have been together since.
Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia has been hosting live music events regularly since its renovation & expansion were completed in late 2012. A wide array of talent has occupied the stage at 12th & Market including Marcia Ball, Ballyhoo!, Ronnie Laws, Mayer Hawthorne (DJ Set), Chill Moody, various members of Celtic Thunder, and Authority Zero just to name a few. The room is one of the most intimate in the city and pumps a fully digital sound system. The full menu (which Hard Rock has just re-vamped) and drink specials are available during all live shows. The venue also validates parking at The Standard Parking garage located at 11th & Filbert!
Tickets are available through Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia’s new website dedicated to live events: WWW.HRCPHILLYMUSIC.COM
Boyhood Philadelphia Premiere July 25th
Boyhood is one of the most anticipated films of the summer. Why? Because it took over 12 years to shoot! Don’t miss the opening at Ritz East on July 25th.
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.
Check out the Boyhood Philadelphia premiere at Ritz East on July 25th. Also, we should have some tickets to giveaway for the movie. We criticize the mainstream film industry for their lack of imagination, and their fear of taking a risk on a unique concept. Well this is a great example of a unique concept, and we are really looking forward to this one. Just watch the trailer and you can see why Boyhood is the most anticipated movie of the
Featured: The One2′s
This week’s featured band are The One2′s, and they’re playing our $5 Showcase at Connie’s Ric Rac this Friday, July 18th!
The One2′s contain members of the former Philadelphia bands Leiana and Big Crowd Popular. These were both excellent bands, so naturally we were excited when we heard they were joining forces. Last year The One2′s sent us their first single Wide Awake. This track has been stuck in my head ever since. Now, we have their entire debut EP in heavy rotation all this week.
The songs are full of great hooks, strong lyrics, and high energy. We’ve seen both the former bands in the past, but now we are looking forward to seeing The One2′s live for the first time. That’s going to happen this Friday, July 18th at Connie’s Ric Rac and you don’t want to miss it. This is the Gashouse Radio $5 Showcase and we couldn’t be happier with the lineup. In addition to The One2′s, we’ve got Wonder and Fury, The Hyde, Only on Weekends, and The Best Lies on the bill. Show starts at 8pm, and we’ll be broadcasting live starting at 6pm.
Tune in all week to hear The One2′s in heavy rotation. They’ll be played throughout the day, and we’ll also start off each episode of Gashouse Live (weekdays 6pm ET) with a track. Listen in to hear what you are in store for on Friday night! Also, be sure to follow The One2′s on Facebook and on Twitter to stay up to date with the band. Check out some of their videos on their YouTube page as well.
