Dreambook





New Dreambook Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Unfortunately, Hidden Underneath, the new album from the quartet of Dreambook, will also serve as the band's swan song. Reverberating riffs are catapulted by a murky, rhythmic march. Creeping even further into the darkness, the mysterious vocals lure and simultaneously serve as a beacon, illuminating the footpath. The album delves into a desolate-dream state that you can’t escape.

Weekend Warrior, Aug. 19-21

Treat Y’r Self Fest returns to PhilaMOCA this Saturday for its second year. The benefit for the annual March to End Rape Culture (co-presented with Pussy Division) will be hosting a day of rad activities to create a safe, inclusive space that is accessible for all ages. Throughout the day and into the evening, you’ll find local favorites like Dreambook, Swanning, and Motherwhore coming together with artist from all over the country to donate their talents to help unify a community for an important cause. Punk legend Alice Bag (of The Bags) will be headlining the music showcase with a new album in tow! And for the first time, Treat Y’r Self Fest will be screening a documentary; Stories From the She Punks was directed by Helen Reddington (The Chefs) and Gina Birch (The Raincoats), and it chronicles “stories of women musicians from the punk-inspired bands of the 70s.” Music critic and author Jenn Pelly will be introducing the film. Kevin Attics (Mercury Girls, Literature) will also be spinning between sets, and Samantha Gurry will be creating some dope hand-cut animated visuals. So come out & TREAT Y’R SELF! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 1pm - 11pm, $10-$12 (sliding scale or donation), All Ages - Alexis V.

Dreambook Celebrating Rachel's One Year Cancerversary at JB's Sept. 24

Tonight, join guitarist/vocalist Rachel Wetzel and Dreambook in celebrating her one year anniversary of being cancer-free. Throughout her private struggle, Rachel used music to "escape all that was happening" and to help her "feel normal." So for her one year cancerversary, there is no other place that she'd rather be than performing on stage for us at Johnny Brenda's. All proceeds collected will be donated to the Young Adult Cancer Connection. Please watch the video (below) that Rachel created documenting her over a year and half battle, and consider it your personal invitation to this "celebration of life." (BTW: I admittedly lost it when she rang the hope bell.) FUCK CANCER! Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Alexis V.

Callowhill 7" Release Show at JB's Feb. 27

Tonight, the relatively fresh formed four-piece Callowhill celebrates the release of their eponymous debut on 7” via Exotic Fever Records with a headlining performance at Johnny Brenda’s. The band, which includes Katy Otto of Trophy Wife, seems to find a middle ground between ironed out melodies and heavier unforgiving instrumentation. As a result, a bridge is built meshing the two, establishing songs guided by the constant propulsion of clean thudding bass lines, snappy percussion, and zigzagging guitar riffs with strong yet soothing vocals. However, despite a polished edge, the band retains a punk rooted core capable of elevating the intensity at any given moment. This evening, the dark, melodic shoegazing outfit Dreambook makes an appearance with a new bassist in tow, dishing out a sonic meal that simultaneously soothes and jars as you drift along. Pop-punk trio Whisper will be kicking off the night. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
