New Track: "Give Me Something" - Scantron

A new single, “Make It With You,” has arrived from Scantron, but let's talk about the flip side. “Give Me Something” has that sweaty riff-fueled buzz. The stomp of the rhythm mingles with the vocals in a cool, catchy manner, injecting a bit of hand clapping for good measure, before hitting overdrive with an infectious snarl. You can catch the band as part the TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb Halloween Murdershow IX, which also includes Sixteen Jackies, this Saturday, October 27 at Underground Arts.

Weekend Warrior, December 22 - 24

Meshing a traditional country-blues feel, anchored on an accessible storytelling foundation, there’s a spectrum of gut-wrenching, emotional outpouring and simultaneous threads of tenderness in the music of the Levee Drivers. Those familiarly worn, vital vocals of August John Lutz II roar in a rabble-rousing fashion, as each spirited song is on the verge of tearing the listener to piece. Surrounded by an incendiary, dusk-light, dusty-road stomp, the band is hardwired to a heart-aching but optimistic duality, stinging with sincerity, as evidenced by their latest album Motel City HoneyTonight, as part of the Big Damn Holiday Brawl at Ortlieb’s, they’ll be joined by the soul-grasping, country rock of Ali Wadsworth, the melodic, energy-infused garage rock of Scantron, and silky-serenading, retrofitted country-folk of Dirty Dollhouse. Get rowdy this holiday weekend! – Michael Colavita

Weekend Warrior, March 24 - 26

The week may have dragged, but now, as the clock dwindles down, the finish line comes into focus. Mother nature has decided to dial up the temperature as a temporary respite, so one may want to act accordingly. Tonight’s show at Kung Fu Necktie serves as a quality starting point. The rollicking, retrograde garage-rock of Scantron offers the type of relaxed but enthusiastic release that the hope of the weekend promises. Triangular boogie-injecting rhythms organically stack bass, organ and percussion into a freight train of fun. This evening, they’ll be paired with the tranquil, psych-garage pill of Burger Records, Los Angeles-based quartet Cosmonauts. Fellow Californians and tourmates, The Molochs, page ahead delivering streaming, straightforward, unhesitating narratives, mixing garage-psych and folk into a pleasing sonic stew.
 
And before bidding adieu, Roof Doctor performs their somber, melodic, melancholy juxtaposing joyful energy for a final time this Saturday night at PhilaMOCA. Proceeds from the show (which also includes Mumblr and Yes Yes A Thousand Times Yes) will be donated to Southern Poverty Law Center. Meanwhile, the reserved yet ripping, shoegazing, fuzz-flavored tones of So Totally close out the weekend with a set on Sunday at KFN, joining Active Bird Community and The Regrettes. - Michael Colavita

Scantron Opening for Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds at KFN May 13

In the past three decades, Kid Congo Powers has been active in some of the most iconic, genre-defining bands in garage rock. Previously involved with The Cramps, The Gun Club, and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, it’s safe to say he’s got his garage rock chops. These days, the project that serves as his main creative outlet is dubbed The Pink Monkey Birds, and they stay faithful to the Kid’s celebrated noise-laden, macabre, dirty garage roots. This Friday, the group is coming to Kung Fu Necktie with openers Scantron, a band appropriately committed to gritty garage rompers and who have pledged fealty to the tradition pioneered by Kid Congo’s efforts. The guitar buzz and the energy feel distinctly punk influenced, but Scantron reintroduces a 50's style twist and swing motif to their back-looking method. The result gives the band more of a party energy, with soulful hooks and a persistent pace that are designed to get your feet moving. Also, catch The Whips for more slap-back 50's style hooks and bad boy greaser vibes. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 7pm, $12, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock
