We just wanted to bring your attention to some fun things happening today/tomorrow in Philadelphia. Make sure you head out to check out Montreal's Elephant Stone (Elephant Stone is Canadian Rishi Dhir's most recent incarnation - and if you followed mod-rock trio The Datsons before they had to change their name to The High Dials, you will know that anything Dhir touches turns into something great - this band will be your ticket tonight for some serious Indian-inflected acid-psychedelic rock songs). Philadelphia will be the second stop on their current US tour date schedule:
w/ The Vacant Lots
Kung Fu Necktie
1248 N Front St
21+ / $10 / 8p Doors
If you are interested in seeing some on-stage craziness and super-fun times, then all that you could hope for would be the line-up tonight with Hunx & His Punx, Chain & The Gang (featuring the superbadass stylings of the Mighty Microphone in Nation of Ulysses' and The Make-Up's front man Ian Svenonius, and recent Ladyfest group Priests' member Katie Alice Greer). Plus New York's Hunters, and local surf music lads Dry Feet are on the bill. Need we say more? This show is not.to.be.missed. if garage punk are your thang.
Take a listen to "Bad Skin" - Hunx is touring with their new album "Street Punk".

Come out to support these great new artists in the making - who knows, some time soon this could be your band, your favorite guitarist, your favorite singer, etc. Support these great kids and their also-talented mentors at the rock show happening tomorrow at Underground Arts.
