Lightninging
Lightninging
{LIGHT-ning-ing} n.

A five person rock and roll band from Philadelphia. Greg (Foran) mostly plays drums on account of him being so good at it. Dave, Greg (O'Neill), Mark, and Matt swap the rest of the instruments awkwardly in between extended fits of manaical abandon and music ecstasy. The music is comprised of loud guitars, vocal harmonies, keyboards, quiet guitars, trumpet, thumps, bumps, and wiggles. Guaranteed fun and spectacle.
A Brood Of Vipers
Formed October 2012, A Brood of Vipers is an experimental garage rock band from Philadelphia. It was founded by Eric Bower, formerly of The Strychnine Babies and Roger Segal, of Sorry and the Sinatras. With progressive arrangements of haunting organ and blues soaked proto-punk guitar tones, the music contains sonic elements ranging anywhere from The Crazy World of Arthur Brown to early Misfits.
Reverend Mantis
Reverend Mantis
Hailing from Philadelphia, Reverend Mantis is a three-piece band rooted in the blues with branches that reach out into psychedelic, punk, and garage rock. Singer-songwriter Brandon Och has spent most of his life playing drums in experimental and avant-garde projects, but with Reverend Mantis he crafts dark blues rock that favors weirdness over nostalgia. On stage, he and lead guitarist Adam Geer trade bass duties through the use of sub-octave pedals, while Adam Phaneuf bangs out a rock-solid stomp on the drums. To be expected: single coils; an interlude from a creepy film; some fuzz, tubes, and reverb; a dirty blues slide; and a howling snake oil salesman.
