Wheetay brings semi-electronic soul to The Tin Roof (10.11) & The Country (10.13)

The funky, stripped-down Southern soul made by emerging act Wheetay—fronted by Thomas White—is exactly what the Nashville scene needs right now. White takes on the responsibility of writing, recording, producing, mixing, and mastering all the tracks, yet he still considers the project a collaborative effort as his friends play a role in inspiring his tracks and bringing them to life. Explained in his own words as a “lo-fi approach to high fidelity music,” Wheetay is finally taking to the stage with a lineup of live shows, in which he will combine live instruments with looping tracks. The sultry, semi-electronic sound created by White and co. is fresh, fun, and a nice change of pace for Music City. If you can’t make his show tonight at the Tin Roof, then definitely make sure to catch him opening for Willie Shaw at The Country on the 13th. - Lilly Milman

Listen to our favorite track “Probably Nothing” streaming below.

New Music Video: "Sun Drop" - Vita and the Woolf

Via Out Of Town Films, Vita and the Woolf released a new video for “Sun Drop”. Filmed at South Philly’s Bok building, the footage jumps between the hauntingly elegant dance of Lauren Williams and Hillary Pearson (choreographed by Antonia Z Brown) and Jennifer Pague’s rooftop contemplations. The imagery captures a lasting duality of beauty and despair. Vita and the Woolf are slated to headline at Johnny Brenda's on Friday, October 2 with Ellen Siberian Tiger and Soul Cannon.

New Track: "Fingernail Clipping of the Moon" - Johnny Showcase

You may or may not recognize David Sweeny as the charismatic sex machine that is Johnny Showcase. The multi-faceted performer is now teaming up with fellow Pig Iron Theatre Co. alum Sarah McCarron & Yuval Boim, and utilizing his various talents to make the South Philly-based indie film D.I.Y., a non-traditional rom-com where a queer-identified couple decides to plan an alternative wedding, clashing against the marriage industrial complex. “In a world where institutions are constantly changing, how do we define for ourselves what it means to commit to our most intimate relationships?”

Sweeny will be pulling double duty in the production's lead role and as the film’s Music Director, and he just shared a breezy, new Johnny Showcase ditty, called “Fingernail Clipping of the Moon”. The lighthearted, ukulele-driven number will appear on the movie’s soundtrack, which will feature contributions from a variety of local musicians. The D.I.Y. folks are also currently involved in Seed&Spark’s Hometown Hero competition (which ends this Friday), and they could use your help to win a chance to work with the lauded Duplass Brothers. So give the gang some hometown love, and FOLLOW them HERE!

Weekend Warrior, October 6 - 8

Cherry’s debut full-length album, Dumbness, is out now via Lame-O Records, and this Saturday, the Russell Edling-led outfit finds its way into South Philly’s Boot & Saddle. Dumbness melodically awakens memories, meditatively tapping into past. An eerie familiarity looms throughout the album; it stirs in a fuzzy friction of reflective folk, as one comes home after a long absence realizing that time alters people, places, and perspectives. It’s a temporary time warp, linking a cross-section of genres, without running off course. Tonight, they’ll supported by the at ease, slow-burning sounds of Yankee Bluff, and things will be kicked off by Clasp, featuring Kat Bean (Amanda X). – Michael Colavita

Swimming Bell releases "The Golden Heart" EP, plays Pete's Candy Store tomorrow (10.07)

Katie Schottland played in several bands before embarking on her own solo project under the moniker Swimming Bell. Her debut EP The Golden Heart is a reflection, a reverberous voice in the dark, framed by picked guitar and wistful percussive textures. For a moment, listening to "Route 72" with closed eyes, I was transported from my desk to a forest clearing on a dewy morning, birds circling above. "In these times of stolen dreams / how could I know you well?" sings Schottland, alone, later joined by harmonies that sound like the echoes of those perished dreams. The simpler "September on Dekalb" is a lo-fi midnight confession, a love letter forgotten in a coat pocket. Swimming Bell takes you somewhere quieter, in a gorgeous, unperturbed manner. Catch her live at Pete's Candy Store on October 7th. - Geena Kloeppel
