THE LAST GENERATION ON FILM (10:00 PM)

The Last Generation On Film is a Modern Rock Outfit from Philadelphia. Their music draws from a variety of influences including electro-pop, funk, chillwave and dance music with an Alternative Rock core and their sound has been compared to A Flock Of Seagulls, Duran Duran, and Glass Animals. Formed in 2014 by Jeff Familetti (vocals, keys, guitar) and Ryan Bayler (keys, guitar) as a synth pop duo, the band recently went through some dramatic changes with the addition of two new members, Joe Tockett (Drums) and Cameron Kynett (Bass).  As a result, the group’s sound has blossomed, a shift that has garnered local attention and resulted in a feature as one of WXPN’s Local Picks, as well as a prime spot on the lineup for 2nd Street Festival. The group is currently in the process of recording their third EP, “Repercussions.”  Their first two EPs, “Repetitions”  and “Reflections,” were recorded at Headroom Studios by Mark Watter and are currently available for streaming online. 


STATIC SHAPES (9:00 PM)

Long-time fixtures of the Philadelphia indie rock scene, singer/guitarist Steve Yutzy-Burkey (The Swimmers), drummer Mike Kennedy (Audible, Lefty’s Deceiver), bassist Rick Sieber (The Swimmers), and keyboard player Alex Yaker (Roomtone) formed Static Shapes in 2019 around a loose collection of songs that envisioned their Philadelphia riverside neighborhood gradually drifting out to sea. The band dug deep into the limitations of 2020 to painstakingly record the sprawling lockdown sounds of the self-produced Give Me The Bad News, which featured on numerous year-end best-of lists, including the San Diego Union-Tribune’s.  Facing another blurring and uncertain year, Kennedy became immersed in William Basinski’s classic The Disintegration Loops as inspiration for a series of glitchy, 4-track cassette loops that evoked this heavy sense of disruption and loss.  Yutzy-Burkey layered melodies over the loops, drawing from the constant echoes of history encountered in his work restoring pipe organs and renovating Philadelphia’s crumbling buildings.  Merging this backdrop with dreams of an eerily altered future, the 5-song Blursday EP continues Static Shapes’ probing of the limits of home studio production. Dream-pop synths and warbling guitar hooks float over skittering bass and drums, while shimmers of those original tape loops occasionally rise to the surface.


SOLD (8:00 PM)

Four dudes playing post-punk or indie or whatever you call guitar rock these days. Been there, done that—in spades. But for those unyielding music lovers who like a little chill in their punk or a little goth in their indie, there’s SOLD.  SOLD is a four-piece from Philly. For the past 5 years they’ve been crafting a simple and ownable style of rock music that’s centered around heavy rhythms, spooky synths, simple guitar, and melodic vocals.  Their debut LP, “A New Wind,” is out now, recorded at Philadelphia’s renowned Headroom Studios by Kyle Pulley and Mark Watter.
