With Isolation Drills, MAGNET has been checking in with Philadelphia-area musicians during the pandemic, while Where We Belong shines a light on our beloved local venues. Now that our city is opening again, MAGNET has launched Philadelphia Freedom to explore what happens next with our music scene, post-quarantine. Photos by Chris Sikich.
Union Transfer played host to a terrific triple bill of Philly bands signed to the Lame-O label: Slaughter Beach, Dog, Hurry and Gladie. Slaughter Beach, Dog is on tour the rest of the year supporting At The Moonbase. Hurry’s latest is Fake Ideas, while Gladie has more live dates later this month with AJJ. There’s certainly nothing lame-o about any of these three Brotherly Love bands.
