Check out GRIMACE FEDERATION at Jam on the River. Overlooked Philly band who have worked with Aesop Rock. . .

wow 3:08 is an idiot. siren is definitely happening. have you been living under a rock? flips at siren would be sick, and it wouldnt be the first time they played a free festival..saw them in philly for free about 2 years ago

I meant that obviously FL @ Siren is not happening. 3:05 is the idiot. the dates listed right there above say that they are going to be in England.

What a surprise, another hipster blog offhandedly dismisses groups who incorporate improvisation into their sound. What a surprise...

That poster is a nice riff on the scene in the 1981 "Deadly Blessing", in which a tarantula is shoved down Sharon Stone's throat.

I also just wanted to say that the Avett Brothers are fantastic. Will You Return is an amazing single. The hipster factor is pretty low, but damn they are good.
