Richard Lloyd
Iconic . . . legendary . . . unique . . . all can be used to describe Richard Lloyd, but the most accurate word might be "relevant." After a career spanning more than forty years, Richard Lloyd continues to make great records and deliver exciting live performances.

Learning from the master himself, Jimi Hendrix, Richard was among the very few pioneers of the New York underground scene, headquartered at CBGB. With Tom Verlaine, a founding member of the seminal band, Television, Richard made some of the best rock and roll records of the all time–Marquee Moon and Adventure. Striking out on his own, Richard gave us Alchemy, Field of Fire, Radiant Monkey, The Cover Doesn't Matter, and more. Richard Lloyd was also the guitar master behind Matthew Sweet, John Doe, and Rocket From the Tombs.

In preparation for a new record, Richard Lloyd is touring again with his quartet, performing selections spanning his entire career. "It is still as exciting to play live as it was when I was 27, jumping up and down on hotel beds."
Gondola
Gondola
Gondola is a heavy acid-psych-rock trio with Rocky Rinaldi (guitar, vocals), Jordan Blumling (bass, vocals) and Tim Plunkett (Drums) from Philadelphia. Their sound is total sorcery. Snarling guitar soaring over sinister bass lines with lyrics conjured from the void, balanced with the attack, resonance and depth of the beat will leave you questioning this reality.
The 1910 Chainsaw Company
The 1910 Chainsaw Company
Fueled by their love of 60's era pop, the 1910 Chainsaw Company adheres to the motto “If it ain't baroque, don't fix it.” The group aims to recreate the solo recording efforts of Rob Perry (AKA Chainsaw) who has just finished recording his eponymous debut EP. The Philly based troop features seasoned musicians: Nick Carlisi (Groovy Movies/Tough Shits), Ilshim Pearlman (The Chimeras/Trash Night), Steve Zimmerman (Jupiter Records/Great Glass Elevator).
The bands mix of 60's inspired pop fused with “Safe For Work” pyschadelia, lends the ensemble to sound like Ween covering The Zombies. Despite having every opportunity to do so; the mainstream musical media refuses to issue a statement about the band's fervor. One can only assume this is because the 1910 Chainsaw Company has a sound which leaves one speechless.
