Happy 10th Anniversary Week, Johnny Brenda’s!!!

For those who’ve been lucky enough to live through the renaissance that Philly’s music scene has been experiencing for the last decade or so, we’d like to remind you of a time when the next big thing in music was not likely going to be discovered in your favorite local DIY space. With the exception of R5 Productions, who was only consistently booking the First Unitarian Church at the time and just starting to gain a great reputation nationally in the indie music scene, many of the music venues were known more for ripping off artists than helping to nurture the music community. However, once Johnny Brenda’s renovated its second floor into a concert space, it was a total game changer - forever raising the bar in Philly. (Thank you!) We finally had a world-class music venue that actually cared about the artists’ and concertgoers’ experience. (What local musician out there didn’t appreciate the complimentary Greek plate in the backstage when he or she first performed there?) Johnny Brenda’s became a cornerstone for the arts & culture community in Fishtown and throughout Philadelphia.
 
This week marks the beloved establishment’s 10th Anniversary as a music venue, and they’ll be celebrating it with some kick-ass events that start this evening with the soulful, powerful ache of Hop Along frontwoman Frances Quinlan, the polished indie-pop of Hurry, and the “heavenly blues” of The Goodbye Party. You also surely don’t want to miss Tuesday night’s psych explorations with Bardo Pond, Birds of Maya, and Chris Forsyth. The rest of the week’s festivities will also include evenings with Rocky Votolato, The Album Leaf, IGNITE Philly, and much more. Cheers to all the good folks at JB’s! - Q.D. Tran

Debut The Afterglows LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Afterglows, the musical union of Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) and Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party), recently shared their self-titled debut full-length album. The home-recordings capture the innate ability of the duo to turn heartache into melody, with Cook-Parrott's acoustic strums and Cantor's layered electric tones as backdrops. It's an intimate look into the late-night, open, honest dialogue between the two housemates. You can stream and download the album below, which is also available on vinyl via Salinas Records.

Come Feel The Afterglow Tonight at Lava Space

Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party, Ex-Ambulars) and Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) combine forces as The Afterglows tonight at Lava Space for a First Time’s The Charm 2016 .  While Cook-Parrott has helped flesh-out The Goodbye Party’s live incarnation, this brand new pairing of the duo offers yet another wrinkle into the collaboration.  With a meshing of infectious pop-melody tempered by a knack for incisive, relatable lyricism, the pairing has the ability to quickly shift musical directions. Tonight, they’ll be joined by the rambunctious release of Todd Killingz, and the intimate acoustic reflections of Shannen Moser. While Bloomington’s Patrick Jennings (Purple 7/Hot New Mexicans) completes the billing. Lava Space (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more information.), 7:30pm, $5, All Ages- Michael Colavita

Explore Other Avenues w/The Goodbye Party at LAVA Space March 27

With the dissolution of his band The Ambulars, songwriter Michael Cantor has moved his attention to his blossoming solo project The Goodbye Party. This latest undertaking carries many themes over from his old group, including the jangly power-pop tonality evocative of Teenage Fanclub that makes songs into anthems. But going solo has also given Cantor room to explore other avenues of his musical inclination, giving rise to tunes that aren’t necessarily fashioned to be played onstage in a high energy environment. Some of the more sedate songs take an almost mournful tone, best described by the self-coined genre descriptor “heavenly blues.” This distinct flavor of jaded melancholy seems to permeate the majority of Cantor’s solo output and stands almost at odds with The Ambulars’s bubbly light-hearted tone. However, it puts on prominent display another side to the artist, while also carrying over enough artistic idiosyncrasy to be unmistakably, patently Michael Cantor. The Goodbye Party will be opening this evening's Sunday billing at LAVA Space with Richmond, VA's Atta Girl, Ohio transplant and Father/Daughter Records artist Addie Pray, and power-pop rock ‘n’ rollers Missing Earth. Lava Space, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

The Goodbye Party Intersects at The Mothership Aug. 3

The Mothership beckons this evening, where The Goodbye Party’s ability to connect a pensive catharsis, simultaneously crafting catchy rumbling rockers comes to an intersection. Tonight, the pairing of Michael Cantor (ex-Ambulars) and Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) may offer a glimpse into a new bag of material, while also pulling from our January Record of the Month - Silver Blues. The quick-jabbing, melodic New York punk trio Arm Candy, whose new self-titled album was recorded by Kyle Gilbride (Swearin’), and the fuzz –adorned Ohio pop-rock quartet Didi complete a lineup that’ll knock that weekend rust off. The Mothership, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.) 8pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Michael Colavita
