Friday, June 2oth at 8pm Join us at Connie’s Ric Rac!
live music – drink specials – beer pong – giveaways – live broadcast
Every month we put a show together with Connie’s Ric Rac to show off some of the independent talent both local and touring. On Friday, June 20th we are squeezing a lot of talent into one night! Audio Kings of the Third World, Estocar, Red Sammy and E. Joseph. RSVP to the Facebook event right here and let me fill you in on some of these bands:
Audio Kings of the Third World are one of the most unconventional bands in Philadelphia. From their Facebook page “AKot3w emerges from a dark corner of the new wave / post-punk era to represent an idlike angst lurking just beneath the conscious world of our time.” The band has been in rotation for years. They use loops, electronic drums, guitars and synthesizers to create their unique sound, and their live show matches accordingly.
Estocar are an extremely hard working band out of Seattle. Take a look at estocar.com and you’ll see what I mean by “hard working”. These guys are constantly on tour across the country. They also have a very extensive discography (which I did not realize until just now. We have Faux Fiction in rotation, and now we’re going to need more!). I’m very excited to finally meet Estocar and see them live; do not miss this show!
Red Sammy is a Baltimore singer/songwriter and fairly new to Gashouse Radio. His sound is described as “graveyard country” and his voice has been compared to Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Go to redsammy.com and just read a few of the many favorable press reviews! On Saturday June 20th we will see Red Sammy live and I definitely suggest you do the same!
And as a bonus last minute addition to this show, E. Joseph has been added to the lineup! EJ is from the Baltimore area and just happens to be friends with Red Sammy so he will be opening up the show with an acoustic set. Recently EJ was in studio for a few songs and they sounded fantastic! They sounded so fantastic that one song ended up on our Acoustic Compilation Volume 1. So make sure you get to Connie’s Ric Rac early for this set!
In addition to all this great music, we will be broadcasting live from Connie’s Ric Rac starting at 6pm ET and we’ve got giveaways in between each band. If that wasn’t enough, rumor has it we’re bringing the official Gashouse Radio beer pong table with us to the show! So mark your calendar for Friday, June 20th and join us for AKot3W, Estocar, Red Sammy and E. Joseph!
