Modern Baseball Modern Baseball was formed in 2011 by friends and guitarists Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens, who were soon joined by Ian Farmer on bass and Sean Huber on drums. The band self-released their first EP The Nameless Ranger in 2011 while still in high school. Shortly after the members relocated to Philadelphia to attend college and quickly gained a strong following in the Philadelphia music community, teaming up with locals Marietta to release the Couples Therapy split in the spring of 2012. Modern Baseball released their debut full-length Sports later that year on Lame-O Records, which they self-recorded and produced. After spending the summer of 2013 touring heavily across the US, the band headed into Studio A in Philadelphia to self-record You're Going to Miss It All. Mixed by Jonathan Low at Minor Street Recordings and mastered by Will Yip, You're Going to Miss It All features 12 tracks that showcase the band's signature witty indie-pop. Spraynard Spraynard was never supposed to end. But in September 2012, after a long tour in support of their excellent second record Funtitled, that’s exactly what happened. The sons of West Chester, Pennsylvania decided to put the pop punk band, one that wore the intense friendship between its members and a 90s brand of localized, improve-your-community-first brand of feminism like badges of honor, to rest. Drummer Patrick “Dos” Ware picked up with Philadelphia punk band NONA, while guitarist and vocalist Patrick Graham started a pair of bands, the solo project Adult Braces and Martin, a band that would have fit in perfectly on bills with 90s Pennsylvania bands like Plow United, Weston, and Super Hi-Five. But it never felt like a real end. There was never a last show, and there was always the lingering feeling that one day, whether it be 2014 or 2030, Spraynard was going to pick back up again like nothing had happened. Last year, the band reunited for an unannounced set around the closing of the legendary Secret Art Space in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and in February, the band announced a couple of May shows in Philadelphia and West Chester to support the Asian Man Records release of a compilation LP, The Mark, Tom, and Patrick Show. And on March 31, the band announced they were officially together again. The Weaks Led by the songwriting powerhouse duo Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo, The Weaks has evolved from a Philadelphia music collective to a full time band for their first collective EP The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To Die. From the ashes of the late Dangerous Ponies, the band has formed a place in the hearts of the Philadelphia scene through their impressive knack for writing hooks that chew bubble gum and kick ass. With influences ranging from Weezer to Thin Lizzy to The Ergs, the songwriting team delivers song after song of straight to the point powerful pop backed by the occasional impassioned shout and a healthy tinge of fuzz. After developing a strong back catalogue of singles through their Song A Week project, The Weaks’ release of The World Is A Terrible Place…brings them forward as a fully developed band ready to take the music scene by storm. Marietta Local Philadelphia sad jams. An electric explosion of rock and emo punk following in the style of bands like Algernon Cadwallader. Get tickets: http://ticketf.ly/1wcxzLU
