ROCKIN’ OUT IN PHILLY – Girls Rock Philly Music Camp August 8-13

Words by Bootsie – Camp Photos by Girls Rock Philly Bloggers – Live Photos by Charles It’s a muggy hot day in Philly and the faint noise of an electric guitar can be heard as I approach the World Café. I open the door to the hum of a bass...

Swear and Shake – Extended Play

Swear and Shake – Extended Play

The 5-track EP, Extended Play, by Brooklyn based indie band Swear and Shake is a gem in the dust. There are so many musicians living in New York that it makes for a charming story when you stumble upon a band at a bar that hits you with such a...

Fanfarlo – Reservoir

Fanfarlo – Reservoir

What comes to my mind when thinking of aviation, exorcism and celestial beings? Hmm. . . . a warped horror flick gone wrong with lack of funding. Maybe Samuel L. Jackson’s Snakes on a Plane, but with extraterrestrials instead. There are an infinite amount of combinations and light bulb ideas...
