Rocco DeLuca plays a solo set at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. Known for his band Rocco DeLuca and the Burden and for the documentary “I Trust You To Kill Me” featuring the band and actor Kiefer Sutherland, who acted as the band’s tour manager during their 2006 European tour. Here is Rocco doing what he does best playing a mean Dobro and digging into one deep well of human emotion that may leave you gasping for air.
Here is Stardeath and White Dwarfs playing Philly’s First Unitarian Church in an amazing display of rock prowess. Dennis Coyne locks into a groove with the audience early on as he and the band drip sonic bliss into the ears of some very impressed onlookers. You can hear the similarities to The Flaming Lips in the way they present themselves and their music.
