Live @ WKDU: Brown Rainbow

Monday, February 2, 2015 - 8:00pm

Brown Rainbow is the duo of Philadelphians Sean Reilly and Kevin Paschall. With riffs as sharp as the corners of the basements they play, their two-pronged attack consistently tugs at the heartstrings of the 18-24 segment. We're all slaves, there's more of us, let's break their legs, and watch them crawl.

WKDU Presents: The Mountain Goats

Monday, April 13, 2015 - 8:30pm - 11:00pm

Union Transfer All Ages

The Mountain Goats' next album, which will be released on Merge Records, is a concept album about pro wrestling. That's not a joke. A big fan of WWE as a kid, frontman John Darnielle says, "I wrote these songs to re-immerse myself in the blood and fire of the visions that spoke to me as a child, and to see what more there might be in them now that I’m grown.”

In a folk/americana format Darnielle creates intriguing and empathetic musical landscapes that range from topics of loss, growth, paranoia, guilt, hysteria and every human emotion in between.
