Illinois Back for More Adventures at JB’s Sept. 16

The Bucks County boys of Illinois are coming into JB’s tonight. The band has been laying pretty low since the staggered release of their “soundtrack” to The Adventures of Kid Catastrophe. The album was released in monthly chapters supported by regional residencies and a national tour. The album contained rerecorded versions of tunes from their stellar EP What the Hell Do I Know as well as newly recorded songs to build the ambitious debut LP. Their brand of banjo tinged fuzzy folk pop supports the bands wafting harmonies while the hard hitting drums often add a welcome edge. It is nice to have these guys back performing after not doing too much lately, and I hope that this is one of many in the near future. Given the lapse in time, I would imagine that Kid Catastrophe and the boys should have a bunch of new songs to unveil (fingers crossed) so make sure to get to JB’s and have some adventures of your own (catastrophes and children optional). Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Adam G.

Screaming Females Release Party w/Women & Ted Leo at The Ox Sept. 16!

The band Women will be at The Ox tonight. Not the Canuck art rockers - no, those guys would get their asses kicked by our local hardcore punk outfit by the same name. Well, Philly’s Women will be helping Screaming Females celebrate the release of Castle Talk. I suggest that you catch these Jersey rockers live because they are nasty and just one of those bands that studio recordings have not done justice yet. Watching pint-sized frontwoman Marissa Paternoster wail with such ferocity while tearing through monster guitar riffs and solos is always a treat! Oh yeah, did I mention that Ted Leo & the Pharmacists will also be in the house? Come on this is a lineup that DIY warehouse spaces like The Ox are made for.
