Look what’s starting to happen with Dorian Duvall’s one man electro-pop band Onuinu. He’s been crafting music in Portland, OR for the past few years and found his way to Philadelphia on a cold and snowy January evening. It would be interesting to see him with his whole band who unfortunately couldn’t make this tour. Peep Onuinu in the video below
The London Souls squeezed into the back of Milkboy Philadelphia on Friday the 11th of January. The trio rattled off a dozen or so songs to the delight of a packed room. Watching Tash Neal chop up new material off of Here Come The Girls, was fairly miraculous. Neal was seriously injured earlier this year in a car accident. He was near death and needed brain surgery to save his life. In the video below, watch the fully recovered Tash Neal open the Philly show with a guitar-heavy version of “She’s So Mad”.
The Philadelphia band Cheers Elephant has been recommended to me several times over the past six months. I can see why – with great stage presence, fatty guitar riffs and some cool three part harmonies these guys are a band on the rise. Look for big things from these cats in 2013. Here is them doing a frisky little version of “Shark Attack” from the Blockley this past week.
