Freedom Hawk ~ Ritual Earth ~ Thunderbird Divine

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM Freedom HawkHailing from the tidal, mucky waters of Virginia, this quartet blends heavy riffs, a rolling groove, and soulful guitar melodies to produce the sound that is Freedom Hawk. Their brand of heavy rock coupled with a high energy live show, leaves many wondering if they’ve stepped through a time warp that has taken them to rock’s heyday of the 70’s by the power of their dark music fueled by the sun.Spotify | Instagram | Facebook Ritual EarthMonolithic riffs in a vast soundscape with pounding heavy grooves and vocal hooks. Emerging from the darkness of a collapsing nebula, Ritual Earth reverberates the electronic radiation of all things Doom, Space, and Psychedelia. Heavy, Slow, Atmospheric, Dark.https://ritualearthdoom.com/Thunderbird DivineThunderbird Divine comprises four Philly rock veterans who came together in March of 2017 to collaborate and create riff- heavy psychedelia/stoner/doom in the spirit of artists like Monster Magnet, Hawkwind, Flower Travellin’ Band, The MC5, Grand Funk Railroad and many more. The quartet is known to incorporate unconventional instrumental elements like theremin, sitar and various keyboard textures to its recordings, showcasing a range of audio manipulations infrequently experienced in the genre. The band has played steadily since its inception, with regular stops at festivals like The Maryland Doom Festival, The New England Stoner Doom Festival, The Shadow Woods Metal Fest and The Doom and Brews Fest.

Born Without Bones ~ Heart to Gold ~ Housewife ~ NOERA

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 6:30 PM Show: 7:30 PM Born Without BonesThere’s a song called “Sudden Relief” on Dancer , the new Born Without Bones album, that’s unlike anything Scott Ayotte has ever written before. That’s not because of the evolution of the Milford, MA outfit from solo project to fully – fledged band, either. Guitarist Jonathan Brucato and bassist Jim Creighton have been a part of the permanent line – up for a long time now, and Super American’s Sam Checkoway – who played on last year’s re – recorded retrospective EP, Pictures Of The Sun – was behind the kit for the whole record, the first time in the band’s history that that’s happened. This goes even deeper. It’s the first time that Ayotte has written a love song that’s not about love going or having gone wrong. Quite the opposite, in fact. “It’s written not from the perspective of having lost love but having gained love,” he explains. “Before, I didn’t write about any relationships until they were over, and it wasn’t usually in the most positive way. But this is a positive song I wrote for and about my girlfriend. Even though it says the nice things about her, I decided to keep in the not so nice things about me – because she’s also signing up for those. Luckily, she’ s loving of both .”https://bornwithoutbones.bandcamp.com/ Heart to Gold https://hearttogold.bandcamp.com/album/tom-2 Housewifehttps://housewifeband.bandcamp.com/track/patrick-bateman NOERAlinktr.ee/no.era

The band formed in early 2019 when Sara, Ryan and Nathan met on the Philly DIY forums online. Not long after meeting for the first time, the three started playing covers of Fleetwood Mac songs and adapting Sara’s previously acoustic music to be played by a full band. Sara pulled in Nicholas to drum, and the foursome was set. The band’s music combines the shimmering, heavy guitars of indie legends Soccer Mommy and Petal with lyric and vocal styles reminiscent of the soulful Joni Mitchell and Jeff Buckley. Caring Less has been playing shows at venues all over the Philadelphia area, including The Grape Room, Khyber Pass Pub, and West Philly’s famous Porchfest music festival. The core of Caring Less’s music is lead singer Sara Johnson’s expressive and evocative vocals. Nathan Garfield sings backup vocals and plays lead guitar, Ryan Acito holds down the bass lines and Nicholas Kreh keeps itall together with the drums. Caring Less spent the summer of 2021 recording and perfecting their first major release, an EP due in Summer 2022. This EP has six songs demonstrating the depth and breadth of their unique sound.linktr.ee/caringlessArchive SpecialArchive Special blends vintage rock riffs and hooks with standout percussion, smooth keys and soaring vocals.
