Split/Red is an art punk band from Philadelphia:
Serious Heft, their latest brain child, had just been released on New Atlantis Records. The video was captured during the record release show at Johnny Brenda’s.
The five-piece ensemble combines the attitude of the Stooges with Minutemen-style hooks that get stuck in your head.
The band equally embraces heavy riffs, up-beat grooves and twin guitar skronk that goes off the rails into a shred maelstrom.
Moreover, the quintet is a collective of Philly’s experimental and rock scenes, featuring members of Many Arms, Shot x Shot, and Make A Rising.
Blowdryer and The [Very] Bad Doctors had opened the set for Split/Red:
Twins of El Dorado is a modern art song ensemble featuring vocalist Kristin Slipp and trumpeter Joe Moffett.
By turns playful, ritualistic, and downright bizarre, the duo performs original texts and music, and also explores the works of others, from medieval choral music to pieces by saxophonist Steve Lacy.
Played a set of his Electric Guitar and vocals music for the crowds at Ortlieb’s in Northern Liberties.
Fairbrother is a member of the band Lantern and has written papers on Japanese Noise and Black Metal.
