Kite Party Opening for Porches at Golden Tea House Jan. 11

At its root, music is often an expression of thought and emotion. Kite Party is a band that doesn’t attempt to mask this process. Rather. They expose and embrace it, creating a brand of pop-punk dripping with blood sweat and tears. Incorporating a conscience pulsing percussion/bass backend with precision-placed keys and guitar work that, at times, is the riff-generating table-setter, and at others, is that final step in an elevating solo. Steered by Russell Edling’s half-spoken/sung emotive vocal style, Kite Party evokes raw unadulterated feelings with a polished finish. Headlining the evening will be eclectic New York outfit Porches, whose latest record Slow Dance in the Cosmos finds the group touching down on a full spread of musical landing spots. Porches can set down almost anywhere - from groove-rocking psychedelics to subtlety smooth, ironed-out electro-beats, all growing out of a foundation of thought-provoking folk-anchored lyrical depths. Golden Tea House, (Please email goldenteahouse42069@gmail.com for more info.), $7, 7:30pm , All Ages - Michael Colavita

Tuesday Tune-Out w/Kite Party & Three Man Cannon at PhilaMOCA June 11

This month’s Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA is curated by the hard-working DIY promoters The Guild. This evening’s show will feature acoustic sets by Kite Party and Three Man Cannon. The former released the LP Baseball Season in 2011, which got the reissue treatment last year on vinyl via Animal Style Records. The latter consists of members from Tigers Jaw, who announced earlier this year that they’ll be disbanding after their U.S. summer tour. Three Man Cannon most recently dropped a split effort in February with Lee Corey Oswald that is a joint release from Black With Sap and Stereophondon Records. I hear that tonight’s movie is a tossup between The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Joe Dirt, which are both good flicks and definitely worth sticking around for after the band performances. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $5, All Ages - Alexis V.

Kite Party Opening for Bridge and Tunnel at The Fire Feb. 24

Kids: it’s time for a short history lesson. Once upon a time, there existed a movement. Guys would tour the country in rundown passenger vans, from dive bars to basements to rock clubs, spreading their gospel of punk rock… or at least how they thought it to be. Similarly, they wore rundown converse, and their bad haircuts were considered badges of honor. In this long ago time, emo, as it was called, was a small respected slice of the punk rock pie. Today, the effigy that was once a fixture in alternative music is but a shell of its former self… tainted by chunky highlights and side-swoop bangs. But in the basements of Philadelphia, one can experience the same sincerity and thoughtfulness that existed back then. Philly-based Kite Party, willing and ready to lead the charge, deliver us from the era of contractual agreement with their own bastarded punk rock child. Drawing reminiscence of Jawbreaker, the playful wrestling of clean bass lines and complementary guitars build an admirable backdrop for Russell Edling’s oddly hypnotic muttering. Supporting New York’s Bridge and Tunnel, it’s home field advantage for these Guildsmen tonight at The Fire. Bring your older brothers and cool slightly-younger-than-your-dad uncles, as this set will appease any purist with a yearning to return to the Golden Age. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 7pm, $8, All Ages - Ed Newton
