Podcast: ITPOW at Roadhouse Inn

 

Our boys In the Presence of Wolves stopped by Roadhouse Inn to introduce new member Jim Ellis. They also filled us in on some of their latest adventures.

After the short interview, ITPOW played an incredible acoustic set. It’s amazing to hear their complex songs broken down to the acoustic level.

Podcast: ITPOW In Studio!


We had a very busy studio tonight!

First of all, it’s always great to have In the Presence of Wolves in studio. They stopped by to discuss an opening in the band, Liberty Music Fest, and a slew of other great shows coming up on their schedule.

RonBomb was also in studio to fill us in on Milk Street Marketing and what’s new at the Ric Rac.

Our boys in The Mainestreet Band called in from their world tour. They’ve got a few shows over in Scotland, and they’ll be back on the show to fill us in on the adventure.

We talked a little Alanis Morissette in music news, sequels in entertainment news, and played music from:

Testosteroso, Skyline Sounds, Eunoia, The JOB Band, Honor Among Thieves, Josh Flagg, and our featured band of the week Alright Junior.

In the Presence of Wolves Raising Money for Debut Album

itpowPhiladelphia prog rock superstars In The Presence of Wolves are getting ready to release their debut album. They just need to raise a little money for the recording studio time, and they could use your help. Go to IndieGogo and throw some support their way.

 

Do not think of it as a donation, because you are getting something in return! Just think of it as pre-ordering the album, because if you give just $10, you will get a copy of the album as soon as it is available. Other perks for helping out the project include exclusive tees, hoodies, a studio visit and even a private show with ITPOW.

 

The goal for ITPOW IndieGogo project is only $2500, and they have until February 17th to make this happen. If you have seen ITPOW live, then there is no doubt you will be helping these guys. We have their 2 recorded tracks in rotation and they are some of the highest voted songs on the station.

 

Click here to check out In the Presence of Wolves on IndieGogo and help them make their goal. We need more recordings from this band! If you are still not convinced, here’s a video to help you make up your mind:

 

In the Presence of Wolves vs. Hudson K

tournament of champions

The deeper we get into December, the harder it is to see each one of these bands go in the Band vs Band Tournament of Champions (click to see bracket). Today, we’ve got 2 very different, equally impressive bands facing off head to head at 6pm ET. Both bands are looking to move ahead in our tournament. Both bands are after that coveted champion ring. Lets take a look at the challengers

 

In the Presence of Wolves: With only 2 songs in rotation, In the Presence of Wolves have made a huge impact on our listeners. Their progressive rock sound set them apart from most other bands on the station, and their above-average musicianship is quite obvious from the recordings. This Saturday night ITPOW are playing the Amber Ladd Release Party at Dobbs (upstairs). Check them out on Facebook for more info and show updates.

 

Hudson K: This Tennessee duo already defeated Solus Rex earlier in the Tournament to get to this position. Their sound is dark, yet danceable synth rock. Usually the band can be found touring all along the east, but right now they are going into hibernation to work on some new material. If you are not yet familiar, get familiar at hudsonkmusic.com!

 

So tune in today at 6pm ET to help determine which of these 2 great bands move on to the next round of the tournament. We will play 3 songs from each band, and all you have to do is click thumbs up during a song if you like it (thumbs down votes do not count during the tournament). After 3 rounds of voting, the band with the most thumbs up will move on to the next round.

 

And of course as always we will bring you the latest independent music. We will keep you up to date in the world of music, and we might even keep you entertained from 6pm all the way to 10pm ET. The Stoner Jesus show follows us every night at 10pm ET, so make sure you tune in to Gashouse Radio, and leave it on all day and night!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 14th! Not only is this Gashouse Radios debut show at The Legendary Dobbs, but this is Amber Ladd’s release party for the new album eleKtro!

 

We’ve put together a great, energetic lineup that is sure to make for an entertaining night. In the Presence of Wolves will be starting off the night. This is one of the most popular bands on Gashouse Radio, and we are so glad to have them on the station. They are a very talented progressive rock band and a lot of fun to watch live.

 

Next up is The Good Excuses. Another listener favorite that we’ve met this year, The Good Excuses are high energy rock band from Willow Grove. Einstein’s Bully is just one of a few songs off their album 30 Minutes or Less on the station that are constantly requested I have heard nothing but good things about their live show so I’m looking forward to finally seeing them live.

 

When we started to book the night, I asked Amber who she would like on her album release show, and her first response was The Defused. A few songs from The Defused have been in the Top 10 Countdown (everyday at 5am and 5pm ET) consistently for months and 1984 is one of the top 5 highest voted songs of the year. The best part is, their live show is even better than their album.

 

eleKtroAnd of course Amber Ladd will be closing the night. The album eleKtro will be released on December 2nd but it is already getting some great reviews online. Its a powerful album from beginning to end, and it will be cool to see these songs recreated live. This night will be a celebration of many many months of work.

 

So be there to celebrate with us! The upstairs at Dobbs will fill very quickly, so make sure you get there early! In addition to the great performances, we will be hosting the night which means we will have plenty of giveaways for the audience in between sets. See you there!

Congrats to In the Presence of Wolves!

In the Presence of Wolves

Congrats to the latest band to enter the elite club of Band vs Band “retired champions”! this progressive rock band defeated 15 bands in a row and is now only the 10th band in our 2 year history to retire. They are in very good company:

 

itpowTestosteroso

Hiding Scarlet

Desiderata

Edelweiss

Drag

Amber Ladd

Magnificent Birds of Prey

The Lost Will Follow

The Defused

In the Presence of Wolves

 

They’re also the first band to do so with less than 4 songs! In fact, these guys had to do it with only 3. In classic prog rock fashion, their album Palladium is only 2 songs; 2 really really long songs. So we chopped the 8 minute Palladium track in half to make 2 separate tracks for Band vs Band. This didn’t seem to slow them down at all.

 

So stay tuned to Gashouse Radio. ITPOW will be in regular rotation from now on, and we will keep you up to date with more shows and releases!

 

 

In the Presence of Wolves vs. Movement Ten

Movement Ten

Here we go. The final match for In the Presence of Wolves. Over the past few weeks they’ve faced 14 incredible bands, and each time our listeners decided that they wanted to hear more and more ITPOW. Maybe it’s the incredible musicianship shown off in their extra long prog rock songs. Maybe it’s because our listeners have seen them live and can appreciate the fact that they can recreate these songs on stage with even more energy and enthusiasm. Regardless, today at 6pm ET is their most important match up yet. Tune in, and tomorrow night head up to NYC to see ITPOW at Desmond’s Tavern.

 

Like I said yesterday, we don’t just hand out the “retired champion” status. So we picked Movement Ten for the challenger today.Movement Ten is a synth-pop project started in 2011. The band released their self-titled debut in 2012 and it is available on their Bandcamp. Earlier this week we debuted a track from their new album Build Them and They Will Come, also available on Bandcamp. The song was well received by our listeners and so they are back for tonight’s Band vs Band.

 

We’ve got 3 songs from each band and we need you to share your opinion of each track. Do so by using our thumbs up/down buttons on the player page and on our Android/iPhone apps. These votes will determine who wins tonight’s match-up. If it is Movement Ten, they will be back Monday to face a new challenger. If it is ITPOW, they will become the 10th retired champion in our 2 year history. We’ve also got new music from the Wayside Shakeup and Me & This Army. Tune in, should be an awesome show!
