MICHAEL DREAMINGMichael Dreaming was born under the shadow of the space needle at some sketchy bus stop on 3rd avenue in Seattle. His debut EP, “27” was slated for release in March 2020. Covid had other plans. Michael loaded up a van and moved cross-country, eventually landing in Philly. Embracing the brotherly love, a project that could’ve easily keeled over, was given new life. Now a five piece band blending basement tapes era folk/rock with 90s style alternative. The sounds are familiar, but they bite. They feel like home, but they feel like outer space. Listen to “27” wherever music is streamedhttps://michaeldreaming.bandcamp.com/ DAN EX MACHINADan Ex Machina began as a solo project 20 years ago and became a full band of alternative/punk rockers in 2011, with two albums and one EP under our belts and a new full-length coming this spring. In the last decade, DXM has shared the stage with Low Cut Connie, Wussy, David Bello (The World Is a Beautiful Place), The Shondes, Tim Fite, Peaer, and countless entertainers in the NJ and Philly indie scene. In 2020, NJ.com named us one of the 31 Best Bands in New Jersey, and Robert Christgau webmaster/Village Voice contributor Tom Hull called Dan “A reliable pop/rock junkie…smart and/or clever,” both of which he is not. We also covered Ariana Grande for a BLM-themed single with all proceeds going to Blackandpink.org, an organization to benefit trans POC prisoners. Our action-packed new “Plead Insanity” video is out now.https://danexmachina.bandcamp.com/REST ETIQUETTERest Etiquette are a folk/post punk band from Philly who just released their debut full length album ‘Grow Mold’ in December 2021. https://restetiquette.bandcamp.com/

THIS SHOW HAS BEEN MOVED TO SILK CITY (435 SPRING GARDEN ST). ALL PURCHASED TICKETS WILL BE HONORED.FLATFOOT 56Playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk, Flatfoot 56 has been unleashing itself upon America and the rest of the world for over 20 years now. Forming in 2000, the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first two label-backed records, 2006’s Knuckles Up and 2007’s Jungle of the Midwest Sea. These releases built on a heavy dose of previously established regional notoriety, helping the band gain steam early on.FOXYCONTINFoxycontin, an American band based in Philadelphia, are four men devoted to playing high-spirited, pop punk. Formed in 2003, the band features members of Philly punk legends The Electric Love Muffin and Krhissy. Over the course of their career, they have endeared themselves to the Philadelphia music scene for their high energy live performances, crisp well-structured songs, and tight execution. On their long awaited debut LP This Time You’re On Your Own (Sister Raygun Records), the band, under the guidance of producer Pete Rydberg, has captured a sound that echoes the halcyon days of Stiff Records as well as the raging melodiousness of Stiff Little Fingers and The Ramones.https://foxycontin.bandcamp.com/album/this-time-you-re-on-your-ownTHE KOOSMANSThe acoustic garage punk inspired duo The Koosmans was spawned after Franny Koosman’s return from an 18 month exile to Scotland in late 2016.https://thekoosmans.bandcamp.com/album/frannys-garage
ESCAPE FROM THE ZOO“Escape From the Zoo are one of those bands where you are expecting a mellow trip down Mr. Toads wild ride, and suddenly realize you accidentally got in line for a death coaster that speeds down the track at 70 miles per hour, with no seat belts” – PunkRock Newshttps://escapefromthezoo.bandcamp.com/PUBLIC SERPENTSPublic Serpents are the product of an experiment gone wrong, mankind. A paranoid schizophrenic layering of chatter fused with manic, ghetto/punk beats make for a proper background to the apocalypse professed by the bands frontman, Skwert.https://tentcityrecords.bandcamp.com/album/public-serpents-escape-from-the-zoo-split-epTHE LOOMS Anarcho-Folk Punks occupying the imperialist territory known as ‘South Jersey’! The Looms are a rambunctious crew that brings a great time wherever they go. Inspired by punk, folk, ska, old union songs, and a bit of prog and pop; their lyrics range from calls to revolution, comradery, solidarity, and having too many holes in your socks. Comprised of a philosopher, a film connoisseur, and the Twin Loom nurses, they’re always down for a conversation—to hear your story, or share one of their own! https://www.thelooms.band/

The Tossers One of the first and most enduring bands on the Celtic punk underground, Chicago’s the Tossers mix the attitude and swagger of punk rock with a muscular but respectful approximation of Irish traditional folk music. Formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1993 by Anthony “T.” Duggins, the group’s lead singer and mandolin player, the Tossers developed a reputation for their storming live show and busy touring schedule, and they influenced similarly minded bands such as the Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly.
