ALGERNON CADWALLADER

After a decade apart, Algernon Cadwallader is reuniting for a national tour this fall. All of the band’s original lineup from both of their albums (Some Kind of Cadwallader, Parrot Flies) will be performing, including Peter Helmis (vocals, bass), Joe Reinhart (guitar), Colin Mahony (guitar), Nick Tazza (drums), and Matt “Tank” Bergman (drums).

The Philadelphia-based band was an instrumental part of the mid-2000s emo revival, pairing Midwest emo with methodical math-rock instrumentation. Though they broke up in 2012, their legacy continues to thrive through album reissues, influencing a new generation of musicians.

About Algernon Cadwallader:

It’s been a decade since Algernon Cadwallader was “laid to rest,” as its farewell blog post stated, but the Pennsylvania band’s legacy continues to thrive. The group was part of the mid-2000s emo revival, pairing Midwest emo with math-rock musicianship. Algernon Cadwallader released two studio albums, a pair of EPs, and several other recordings over the course of seven years. The group ended in 2012 as a trio featuring Peter Helmis (vocals and bass), Joe Reinhart (guitar), and Tank Bergman (drums). In 2018, Pitchfork gave their reissued debut album an 8.3 out of 10, saying “Some Kind of Cadwallader still leaps out of the speakers, an album that treats its songs like secrets they’re dying to share.”

AMANDA X

Formed in 2012, Amanda X is a post-punk power pop trio from Philadelphia. The band is composed of Melissa Brain on drums, Kat Bean on bass and Cat Park on guitar. 

Described by Rolling Stone magazine as an arsenal of high velocity drums and post punk hooks, Amanda X continues to shine in their decade as a band. Their sound has been compared to The Breeders and Sleater-Kinney.

 

“A propulsive, power trio punk energy mix with serpentine, exploratory instrumental jams and graceful, poetic lyrics.”

THE DIONNE GROUP

The Dionne Group was formed in 2021 for the express purpose of getting Nate Dionne out of the truck and back where he belongs; singing about being in the truck. With a stoic demeanor that only the unique combination of physical labor and malnutrition can manifest, he really makes you feel like you’re at work. There’s some stuff about love in there, too.
