RACHEL ANDIE (11:00 PM)
Philly’s own Rachel Andie plays the last show on her US summer tour before departing back to New Zealand, where she now lives and plays music for the majority of the year. A staple of the Philly music scene, Rachel became a local favorite since the culmination of her project, The Fifth Element in early 2018. With the release of their debut album “Tu Me Manques”, they made a name for their ethereal alternative music, and were featured on platforms such as NPR, the SXSW Official Showcase, WXPN, and more. Rachel now lives in NZ, fronting her own band and playing with countless other bands as a multi-instrumentalist, and returns each summer to share new music and play in her hometown projects in Philadelphia.

 

 

GREAT TIME (10:00 PM) 

Great Time doesn’t want to fit in a box. Living up to their name, the band just wants to have a great time making the music they want. Tired of being advised to “pick a lane” by some of their industry peers, Great Time sets out to create music that celebrates their wide-ranging sound, incorporating genres like synth-pop, electronic, jazz, punk, rock and R&B. Their most recent releases are a series of EPs titled “Sounds Like ____”. The band had the idea to turn the EP titles into a Mad Libs type of game “so that someone could put their own adjective or descriptor for the EP in the blank space,” explains singer/multi-instrumentalist Jill Ryan. The projects explore some of the different sounds and styles that influence Great Time. “Some people thought [our 2018 debut LP] Great Album was all over the place, so with the ‘Sounds Like’ series, we decided to lean even further into our multi-genre tendencies and place the option of categorizing or putting us in a box on the listener.” 

SWEET PILL (9:00 PM)

Philadelphia’s Sweet Pill write eruptive emo songs that embrace the edges of pop and hardcore. The kind of band whose members are fully immersed in their local scene—through a handful of notable side projects and the show-promoting Philly staple 4333 Collective—the quintet’s sound takes wide-spectrum influence from its environment. The result is an amalgam of complex song structures and flourishes of technical acumen, wholly unconcerned with genre, yet evoking the specific styles of touchstones such as Paramore and Circa Survive.
