These are some of the photos I took at the Methyl Ethel / Blonder / Archawah show last night at Boot & Saddle. There is minimal post editing if any. Maybe my novice photography shills show but in this case I felt like editing these photos would not enhance them any. Well, photography is a form of art and my choice not to edit could be wrong. Anyways, I attended the show to see Archawah, an established favorite band of mine. However, I did stay to hear Blonder’s and Methyl Ethel’s sets. I enjoyed all the music I heard that night. And I might have found some new fave bands. YES!!!

The newest, self-titled, Space Pizza album is a fun and lively five track ride that travels from everyday matters to those deemed private or even taboo. This is rock and roll/indie rock that touches on psychedelic grooves and experimental elements. At some point, I thought I heard video game music samples. If not at other moments, the end of the second track clearly exemplifies a space rock sound. Anyways, whether you truly connect with the subject matter or not the catchy, infectious style of this music is hard to resist.
Space Pizza is a rock and roll quartet from the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. Said to be, or simply self-proclaimed, “the ultimate party band outside of Philadelphia.” The band consists of members: Craig Labor (drums/vocals), Sean Lally (guitar/vocals), Adam Pluchino (bass/vocals), Mike Ritz (guitar/vocals). I’m not sure how many releases this band has thus far but their Bandcamp page has three other albums/eps. I gave a few of those albums a quick listen and the sound, vibe, and style seems to be consistent with this album.
This self-titled album by Space Pizza was brought to my attention and I’m not sure if I would have found it on my own, but it has been a fun listening experience. So, if you’re in need of some energetic tunes, that are sonically serious, yet bursting with fun then you owe it to yourself to give this album a listen. And just like a delicious pizza, Space Pizza’s self-titled album travels well.
The Women’s Law Project is a leading voice in the fight for equal access to reproductive healthcare and abortion, improving institutional response to all forms of violence against women, challenging sex & gender discrimination, and advocating for workplace equality and economic justice. We’re proud to be a state-based organization with a significant track record of national influence, and an extensive track record of legal precedents and policy reforms that advance the rights of women and their families—particularly those with few resources and little political power.
“If You Harden On The Inside” blends beautiful layered harmonies of disinterest (“blah, blah, blah, blah”), a confident voice with a rich timbre, and songwriting with a clear message— “if you harden on the inside, you’ll be easy to break”. Even with a direct message the meaning is left up to the listener’s interpretation. The way this song pairs a delicate production with an almost reserved delivery will leave a lasting impression.
You can purchase “If You Harden On The Inside” on Hezekiah Jones’ Bandcamp page.
Yesterday I spent my Saturday night at Underground Arts listening to the wonderful live music provided by Hezekiah Jones, Black Horse Motel, Adrien Reju, and Andy Stack. Experiencing live music in person cannot be replicated but let the following photos and videos give you a hint of what the show was like. See you at a show!
