Philly For Bernie Sanders Concert
Philly For Bernie Sanders Concert
Back by poplar demand after a sold out first show! There are a growing number of Philadelphians getting very excited about Bernie Sanders. So much so that a few of us have decided to hold a series of concerts to raise funds for his presidential campaign and celebrate his efforts to tackle many of the crucial issues facing everyday Americans (not to mention his willingness to campaign without contributions from any corporations or lobbyists whatsoever). It will also be a super good time!

Featuring a great lineup of local acts curated by Philly pop/experimental outfit Son Step, words of wisdom and organizing tips from some of the city's most ardent Bernie supporters, and excellent food/drink served up by B&S.

Tickets (both advance and at the door) are $10, and in compliance with FEC guidelines, 100% of the profits (after venue expenses) will be personally donated to the campaign by the event organizers. For those of you that would like to give more, we will also be providing and collecting individual donation envelopes given to us by the campaign. If you plan on attending we strongly recommend purchasing advance tickets. This is likely to sell out! Please note that Boot & Saddle is not an all ages venue, so you must be 21 or older to attend. Performances from:
Son Step
Son Step
Son Step is a unique collaborative effort based in Philadelphia, comprised of twin brothers Jon and Chris Coyle (vocals/synthesizers and bass), Joel Gleiser (vocals/electronics), and Matt Scarano (percussion). In the business of importing/exporting off-kilter moods, dense & joyful rhythms, euphoric question marks for the ears, etc.
Laser Background
Laser Background
Laser Background is a project about childhood. Every aspect of our adult lives is transformed by what we absorb during the sponge of our youth. And it is this precise molten window, still nestled & thriving within our brainscapes, that Philadelphia's Andy Molholt delves into with Laser Background's debut LP Super Future Montage.

"I wanted to create a psychedelic action/adventure LP," says Molholt. "I look at Super Future Montage as a sort of mission statement, not just for Laser Background, but for life in general. I look at this album as my life's work.

Repetitive themes run rampant throughout the record, drawing parallels between birth, death, sleeping, waking, the monotony of the mundane & the peculiarity of the mystical. Molholt neatly wraps this colossal array into a confectionary web of confusion ripe for the tasting. "It's a reminder of sorts, that existence is filled with beginnings & endings," Molholt offers. "The human condition is basically one big lost & found. Once you really embrace the idea that security of any kind is an illusion, you can start to move forward & break new ground."

Produced by Michael Johnson (Ape School, Lilys, Holopaw) & engineered by Michael Trillions (Norwegian Arms, Grandchildren), Super Future Montage pushes Laser Background into unexplored sonic territory, hijacking expectations & forcing the listener to come along for the ride. Echoing influences like Of Montreal's Coquelicot & Brian Eno's Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy), Molholt forges a sound both reminiscent & all his own, a post psychedelic avant-pop vacation. If past, present & future are the fruits of time, here Molholt has created his orchard. And in this warped universe, where time no longer matters, the flowers are constantly in bloom.
