NEW ENEMIES (10:00 PM)

 

Former members of the Philadelphia-based band, Turning Violet Violet, came together to make New Enemies. Exploring themes of life, coming of age, and loss, they marry synths, washed-out guitars, and a driving rhythm section. Led by vocalist/songwriter Sarah Gulish, New Enemies plays earnest songs with catchy melodies and drifting guitar lines. Their 2016 EP was hailed as a beautiful new beginning for the band of friends. Journalist Julie Miller reviewed the songs as “majestic in a somber, soft way, billowing up in a cloud of horns as Sarah Gulish’s vocals float in layers over top. The chamber rock of TVV’s songs still ripples underneath, but as New Enemies, they’ve added a shiny gloss of atmospheric pop that ties it all together in a Death Cab-meets-CHVRCHES kind of way.” In 2022, N.E. is back with a self-titled E.P. and a string of east coast shows.


THE SPEWS (9:00 PM)

 

The Spews are a band based in Philadelphia, PA. With a sound as damp and unrefined as the basement in which they were born, The Spews are here for you. You may enjoy the music of The Spews if you have ever experienced any of the following: a broken heart, deep longing, fear of the unknown, desire, guilt, or the urge to jump around and have a good time.  Aidan Guynes (vocals/synth), Grant Woodworth (guitar), Tim Sosin (bass), and Tanner Guynes (drums) join forces to create a sound that will leave you moving. 

CHRISTIANA BENTON (8:00 PM)

 

Christiana Benton is based out of Philadelphia, PA. Her touring and studio bands have featured a rotation of friends-turned-collaborators under the pseudonym “The Still, Small Voice.” Currently, she is prepping a debut full-length release under her own name. “Better Late Than Never” will be available Fall 2022.
