Get tickets: Lightninging at The Boot & Saddle LIGHTINGING A five person rock and roll band from Philadelphia. Greg (Foran) mostly plays drums on account of him being so good at it. Dave, Greg (O'Neill), Mark, and Matt swap the rest of the instruments awkwardly in between extended fits of manaical abandon and music ecstasy. The music is comprised of loud guitars, vocal harmonies, keyboards, quiet guitars, trumpet, thumps, bumps, and wiggles. Guaranteed fun and spectacle. A BROOD OF VIPERS After playing Punk Rock for many years, Eric Bower, singer/songwriter for Philadelphia's 'A Brood of Vipers' decided to do something a little different. "I started experimenting with new sounds by fusing together major and minor chords with guitar and keyboards. I was searching for ways to write honest songs that stand out while incorporating all of my influences." Eric proceeded to record a few tracks, with plans of forming a band. Having shared stages for years in various bands including 'The Strychnine Babies', and 'Sorry and the Sinatras', Bower and bassist Roger Segal made good on a long discussed collaboration. While auditioning drummers, Roger mentioned Blitzkid basher and former Gorgeous Frankenstein stickman, Andrew Winter. They rehearsed with Andrew, and the three of them immediately clicked. With the fourth and final addition of 'Gringo Motel' multi-instrumentalist Tom Scheponik on keys, A Brood of Vipers were born. The thought behind the band is to write songs that are stripped down and to the point while sustaining a dynamic approach. The lyrics tend to focus on a darker side of life and are designed to make the listeners evaluate their thoughts. With elements of Punk, Garage, Blues and a hint of Jazz, 'A Brood of Vipers' are sure to make their own mark on music. REVEREND MANTIS Hailing from Philadelphia, Reverend Mantis is a three-piece band rooted in the blues with branches that reach out into psychedelic, punk, and garage rock. Singer-songwriter Brandon Och has spent most of his life playing drums in experimental and avant-garde projects, but with Reverend Mantis he crafts dark blues rock that favors weirdness over nostalgia. On stage, he and lead guitarist Adam Geer trade bass duties through the use of sub-octave pedals, while Adam Phaneuf bangs out a rock-solid stomp on the drums. To be expected: single coils; an interlude from a creepy film; some fuzz, tubes, and reverb; a dirty blues slide; and a howling snake oil salesman.
