French Police ~ Strange Weekend

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM FRENCH POLICEAs the project of Brian Flores, the band has been haunting fans with a blend of emotionally wrought post-punk since 2019 and their latest offering is no different. “Club de Vampiros” exudes a melancholy from its undulating synth pads and guitar line as a bouncy bassline carries the song to its end. French Police’s single captures the seduction of dancing in romantic, cavernous spaces filled with fog and a promise of eternity. WEEKENDStrange Weekend is a high energy indie rock group channeling 2000s alternative through driving drums, aggressive basslines, and dancy distorted guitars. Through raw, loose, and energetic performances, the band have collected a following from the Philadelphia house circuit.

Blood Red Shoes ~ Mz. Neon

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:30 PM Show: 8:00 PMBLOOD RED SHOESBlood Red Shoes have been busy. After years spent living on opposite sides of the Atlantic, world events threw them back together into what has become the must fruitful era of their 17 years together.  “It’s been a loooong time since we both lived in the same city”, explains Steven. “I mean we actually wrote this album in LA at Laura’s place, then came to the UK to record it…and then everything went nuts”.  Realising very quickly that they wouldn’t be able to release the album or tour until the world returned to some kind of normality, the band found their energies quickly spilled over into other projects. Laura-Mary started a podcast, Never Meet Your Idols, with her best friend in LA, interviewing everyone from Zack Snyder to Mark Lanegan to CHVRCHES. It is now about to start its third season. Steven started applying his love of electronic music by writing and producing other alternative artists like Circe, ARXX, Aiko and XCerts, racking up millions of streams in the process. MZ. NEONMz Neon is a genre-bending musician, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and multimedia artist using performance and lyrics to express her sexuality as a trans woman and defy misconceptions about herself and anyone who identifies outside of the binary spectrum – both gender wise and ideologically. A lyrical provocateur, Neon confronts issues of identity, sexuality, politics, spirituality, and lived experiences as a trans-femme-fatale. She is a triple threat of sharp wit, hypnotic sensuality, and musical virtuosity. Neon commands an elegantly tough, yet unapologetic ownership, of her visceral vulnerability ─ on and off the stage ─ to local and international audiences alike. Born in Boston, MA, Neon moved to New York City after high school where she spent over a decade performing in a number of bands and working in fashion as a couturier, before relocating to Los Angeles in 2017. Neon performs extensively in the U.S. and internationally, being billed alongside acts such as Hercules & Love Affair, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Azealia Banks, Martin Rev of Suicide, and Egyptian Lover, among others.

Goon ~ Path

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM Goon“Come along and wake up on the way,” sings Goon frontman Kenny Becker, “orange shapes arrange and change again/quiet Isaac in a mild dream.” The lyric evokes the hazy dreamscape spaces occupied by the band’s new album, Hour of Green Evening. Goon began as Becker’s Bandcamp solo project in 2015. At a friend’s encouragement, Becker compiled the best of his tracks and released them as an EP, 2016’s Dusk of Punk. He recruited bandmates from his college buddies and released a second EP, all the while working on the band’s first full-length, 2019’s Heaven is Humming on Partisan Records, followed by the self-released Paint By Numbers 1, a collection of his mid-pandemic home recordings. The evolution of Goon has come to full fruition on Hour of Green Evening. It’s the band’s most complete statement, engaging all aspects of their sound to stunning effect. The album thrums with mystery, with the half-remembered past hazy as dreams, the mixed sense of comfort and longing for freedom so essential to youth. Path is the recording project of Philadelphian Sam Keeler. Since coming together in 2017, Path has released two full length LPs and multiple singles. Their undeniably rich and emotional sound, solidified by sparkling guitars, warm electric piano, and a tight rhythm section, has helped Path emerge as one of the true hidden treasures of northeastern indie rock. If you know you know ❦ Path is currently creating a third full length LP. They tour the northeast regularly as a five-piece band featuring Donald McGrath (guitar), Jeff Silverman (bass), Jordan Dion (keyboards) and Jon Tomaro (drums). Spotify Youtube Instagram Bandcamp
