Red Aunts
Red Aunts
The Red Aunts are an all-female punk band that formed in 1991 in Long Beach, California, when Terri Wahl (guitar/vocals) recruited friends Kerry Davis (guitar/vocals), Debi Martini (bass/vocals), and Lesley Ishino (drums). Their brand of unfiltered music is toxic, taking a sharp claw to every riot grrrl cliché it can shred. After five albums, several years of touring, and a huge fan base, they called it quits in 1998.  Their greatest hits compilation, 'COME UP FOR A CLOSER LOOK' was released on In The Red Records in December 2014; a gatefold sleeve double album, complete with killer art and photos, and liner notes by Red Aunts fan, Sasha Frere-Jones.
 
Your favorite band of the 90s (maybe). Best and worst live shows of all time, depending on the night. Now angrier, hungrier, and a hell of a lot more tired – can Terri, Kerry, Lesley and Debi get it together in time? Only one way to find out! Party in the pit, punker!
RunHideFight
RunHideFight
RunHideFight was spawned from the Philly garage rock DNA of Rockula, Brother JT, The Original Sins, Suffacox, Mae Pang and Three 4 Tens. Featuring Christine Weiser, Geeta Dalal Simons, JT and Jon Kois, RunHideFight performs raucous rock fueled by motherhood-meets-Marshall angst.
Control Top
Control Top
Appearing in various forms in the Philly DIY music scene since 2015, the post-punk trio Control Top is a tribute to persistence and evolving through doing. Amid periods of dormancy, stylistic forays and lineup changes, singer/bassist and founding member Ali Carter was determined to keep the project going after the release of the band's demo tape. In 2017, she recruited drummer Alex Licktenhour (HIRS, Get Better Records) and guitarist Al Creedon (Bleeding Rainbow, I IM EYE MY). Licktenhour was searching for a new project to get involved in, while Creedon was rediscovering electric guitar after years of playing noise and electronic music. Together, they forged a clear identity, blending diverse tastes to create music for a time beyond despair and naïveté. Their debut full-length--recorded, produced and mixed by Creedon--is underway and will be out later this year.

That’s the thing with post-punk. There’s so much a band can do under its umbrella. The Slits and Devo, Glenn Branca and Siouxsie and the Banshees--these artists are all wildly different yet found a home in a genre that resists definition. Control Top gets inspiration from these wide-ranging pioneers yet remains true to the post-punk ethos of anti-imitation and the drive to create a new remedy to modern ills. The urge to resist conformity is stronger than ever, and the need for urgent, relevant music is just as strong.
