San Francisco based electro pop band, Date Nite has released a new music video for their single, In the Light. The track is an upbeat space dance track that gels perfectly with their neon-delic music video. In The Light is visually dynamic, campy, delightfully imaginative and humorous to watch. If you like what you see, do your best to make your way to Date Nite's upcoming show in San Francisco!
One of Baltimore’s well-known Charles Village music venues, The Windup Space, is hosting a two-day stoner rock/psych/doom rock festival this weekend.

Baltimore based pop punk'n'rollers Lisa Doll & the Rock n Roll Romance blast infectious melodies laced with punk tinged hooks that are beyond a nod to front woman Lisa Doll's influences. After recently dominating our polls, she easily was crowned Band of the Month, and we wanted to find out more about this artist who is in the midst of setting up a killer tour this October. Here she tells us about Del Tigers, Joan Jett, and lunch money well spent. Now onto the interview...
We blogged about Oakland/Brooklyn based Futurebrite a few weeks ago - it's the new project of singer Karen Corrêa (already involved in the NYC scene with now dissolved rock trio Demander) and producer Josh Grant. Industrial music has had a rather negligible role in pop music's history so far, and it's interesting to see a decidedly pop project introducing mechanical elements reminiscent of NIN and Ministry, while filtering out those bands' rougher edges. Futurebrite will celebrate the release of their debut EP “Futurebrite Part 1” with a show at Glasslands on Friday 06.21 - also on the bill The Canon Logic.
Check out the video below which contains some footage from this year's Ladyfest Philly and an interview with organizer Grace Ambrose! It was shot and edited by Alan Martofel, and the music in the video was provided by Shady Hawkins & Attia Taylor.
An unsettling sense of foreboding runs throughout “Wild Like Us,” the A-side single from Brooklyn's Courtship Ritual, who recently played their label GODMODE's show at the Northside Fest. Evoking the spirit of 90’s era 4AD artists like His Name Is Alive and their disquieting “Can’t Go Wrong Without You,” ominous overtones emerge from within the spaces surrounding the song's sparse arrangement. B-side “Biesenbach on the Beach (Klaus)” maintains a similar level of spaciousness, driven along a singular bassline and minimal slap percussion as vocals repeat the lines “grey fox grey – beach day.” Recorded by Colin Alexander and mastered by Joe Lambert, the tracks are available digitally worldwide and as a limited edition cassette on the GODMODE imprint. - Dave Cromwell
The Electric Factory is in for an evening of psychedelics as local icon Quentin Stoltzfus (known for his work in Mazarin) opens with his new musical incarnation Light Heat. The group, which also includes The Walkmen’s Walter Martin, is set to release their self-titled LP on June 25th via Domino/Ribbon Music. Their sound is balanced retro pop-rock providing clean vocals and steady percussion while the guitars/keys drift onto a distanced and murky frontier. It will pair quite nicely with the free-flowing psychedelic energy of Australian natives Tame Impala. If your lucky enough to have tickets to this sold-out show, let your mind drift into the possibilities that this night offers. Electric Factory, 421 N. 7th St., 8pm, Sold Out, All Ages - Michael Colavita
It’s always a shame when a band decides to disband, but knowing the end is near can result in one helluva goodbye. On the heels of their newest EP, Forget About It, Catnaps will be performing their final show tonight at PhilaMOCA. The group started off playing around Philly and recording under the moniker When I Was 12, which seemed to be a fitting band name considering the oh-so-sweet twee tunes that they were churning out. However, they decided to change it in June 2011 after growing tired of being mistaken as a tween band. With their latest releases, the group began showing off a more aggressive sound that seemed to be a step in the right direction. Amidst heavy feedback and crashing symbols their songs still maintained a youthful electricity, a static shock that sometimes prompted impromptu dancing in front of bedroom mirrors (it can’t just be me, right?). Let’s properly put this kitty to bed! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., $7 - $10, 7:30pm, All Ages - Shaylin O’Connell
Here's Small Black's new video for single "No Stranger" - is this nu new romanticism? The band will be hitting Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 30, at the end of a US tour that started a few days ago..
