Music Monday is a thing right? At least that is what Twitter tells me, so tonight at 6pm ET we’ve got you covered. New music, the weekend recap, a very small Grammy discussion, and a look ahead at the music happening around Philadelphia. Oh yeah, and scotch. There will be scotch.
Join us for Gashouse Live today at 6pm ET. One of the topics for discussion will include changing your band’s name. When is this a good idea? Is it ever ok to change your name? What are some of the things you should look for when initially picking a band name? If you have something to add to this discussion, please join us in chat!
Today we will be debuting music from these independent artists for Music Monday:

Moscow Magazine: Featuring strong lyric-soprano vocals, Moscow Magazine’s quirky fusion of funk, jazz and rock is sure to have you feeling and moving. A Russian master, a holotropic maverick, a feminist firebrand, a Teutonic troubadour, and a Devonian tub-thumper – we are a combination of cultures, a blend of influences, and a riot of sensual expression. Like Kate Bush in a relationship with Fleetwood Mac, but seeing La Roux and Pearl Jam on the side…
