New Hotel Neon Remix Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Today is the final day that proceeds from Hotel Neon's Context: Remixed will be donated to Direct Relief, which supports disaster assistance in Mexico, Texas, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean. Cleansing waves of reassuringly peaceful power push forward, as a sonic vortex circles the periphery. One’s mind gradually quiets down, reaching a meditative state. Focus in, and allow the conflicting layers to wash away.

New Video: "100%" (Sonic Youth Cover) - Cap'n Jazz & Hop Along

As part of the the A.V. Undercover series, a reunited Cap'n Jazz recently collaborated with Philly hometown heroes Hop Along at the House of Vans in Chicago. Covering Sonic Youth's "100%," the tandem launches into a feedback-fueled, bass-thumping inferno of rhythm and noise. That juxtaposing blend of groove and jarring intensity creates a heavy yet fun dynamic. Dare you to play it just once.


New Track: "Fingernail Clipping of the Moon" - Johnny Showcase

You may or may not recognize David Sweeny as the charismatic sex machine that is Johnny Showcase. The multi-faceted performer is now teaming up with fellow Pig Iron Theatre Co. alum Sarah McCarron & Yuval Boim, and utilizing his various talents to make the South Philly-based indie film D.I.Y., a non-traditional rom-com where a queer-identified couple decides to plan an alternative wedding, clashing against the marriage industrial complex. “In a world where institutions are constantly changing, how do we define for ourselves what it means to commit to our most intimate relationships?”

Sweeny will be pulling double duty in the production's lead role and as the film’s Music Director, and he just shared a breezy, new Johnny Showcase ditty, called “Fingernail Clipping of the Moon”. The lighthearted, ukulele-driven number will appear on the movie’s soundtrack, which will feature contributions from a variety of local musicians. The D.I.Y. folks are also currently involved in Seed&Spark’s Hometown Hero competition (which ends this Friday), and they could use your help to win a chance to work with the lauded Duplass Brothers. So give the gang some hometown love, and FOLLOW them HERE!
