Philly Music Fest & JB’s Present
Formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 2005, Screaming Females is Marissa Paternoster (guitar, vox), Mike Abbate (bass), and Jarrett Dougherty (drums). Over six albums and more than a decade of music making, the band has remained deeply individual and steadfastly DIY. They have also grown into one of the most dynamic and devastating touring bands going today.
Out February 23rd, All At Once is the trio’s most expansive and imaginative works to date–a double LP that swings between surreal miniatures and solo-heavy sprawl. Concision takes a backseat to experimentation, with arrangements meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live shows. It’s music built across a timeline that’s longer than our internet-enhanced moment typically tolerates and a testament to the band’s dedication and perseverance.
Ghösh is a disco cabal, a “political party” if you dig what we’re saying, a band– they’re a wild sonic collage, a quasi post-grunge, post-industrial mash-up, all wrapped up in the chaos and entropic funk of a warped and screwed Public Enemy demo tape and a fax machine shredded in a Cuisinart. Their songs are an iridescent kind of noisy digital alchemy layered in dense charging breakbeats and splattered in raucous dayglo, laser-beamed transmissions from the future at the last protest march of the revolution.
Symphony Spell (vocals/lyrics) and Zachary Fairbrother (various instruments/samplers), the two cyborgs that form Ghösh, bonded over their love for jungle, techno, rap and nu metal to create songs that bang in tantric visions of sight and sound. Their aesthetic is ripped from the screenshots of Republican nightmares and projected wide in shimmering hologram, scored by the last dancefloor clearing sound blasts from a party on Cybertron, all couched in the lyrical intensity of a 2008 myspace page co-owned by Audre Lorde and Missy Elliot.
The Ire is a post-punk group originating in Philadelphia, started by guitarist Florence Lin in late 2017. Joined by Ashley Tini (drums), Maya Brooks (vocals), and Daniel Cox (bass), The Ire released their demo in early 2019, and have since impressed audiences across the country with their romantic mixture of rage and passion; packaged in the nostalgia of an 80s goth and anarcho-punk sound.
