Night Panther

Weekend Warrior, April 25 - 27

Tonight, we’ll be presenting the final show of Night Panther’s residency at Bourbon & Branch, and we might have saved the best for last! If you caught any of the run so far, then you know that our favorite sex-pop group are at the top of their game so panties will be dropping. They’ll be bringing along West Philly’s favorite sons Grandchildren and Doylestown pals Commonwealth Choir for the ride. And if that wasn’t badass enough, experimental-pop duo Pattern is Movement has been announced as the  very special guest for this evening. Yeah, there is a lot going on in Philly this evening, but trust me when I say, “Nothing else happening tonight matters.” BTW: If you don’t have your tix already, then you better get there early! Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Q.D. Tran

Weekend Warrior, April 4-6


If you’re in the mood to shake your ass tonight and extend last week’s East Coast Beard and Moustache Championships, Night Panther will be kicking off their April residency at Bourbon and Branch with Purples and Nicos Gun. Hailing from Doylestown and fronted by the seductive Farzad Houshiarnejad, Night Panther has been making Philadelphia sexier over the past year, named one of the top bands in The Deli Philly's Best of 2013 Emerging Artists Poll and catching the attention of ABC’s Mixology, who has commissioned the band to song write.  Warm up to the intoxicating hustle of “Fever” and wet your whistle for $1 Narragansett pounders till 10pm, free alcoholic gummies by Rebel Gummies, and drink specials by Sailor Jerry and Art in Age. Bourbon and Branch, 705 N. 2nd Street, 8pm $10,  - Jaime Pannone

The Deli Philly’s Year End Poll - Top Performers: Night Panther

The runner-up in The Deli Philly’s Best of 2013 Emerging Artists Poll is the dance-inducing crew, Night Panther. They describe their musical style as “sex pop,” an apt title for the band’s hazy glamour. The group released their self-titled album in mid-2013 via Small Plates Records, an LP rife with infectious beats and seductive singing, taking a page from legends such as David Bowie and Freddie Mercury. Underneath all of the electronic dazzle, however, lies some serious soul. Songs like “Queen Bitch” reveal the softer side of the band, a sentimental ballad of lost love, with heart-tugging lyricism and vocals that would seem right at home in a stadium venue, surrounded by thousands of lighters, alit and waving. Just like moments in the bedroom, Night Panther’s eponymous album listens like a well-versed Lothario with a perfected technique. Knowing just when to speed things up and when to slow them down, the band expresses a versatility that will surely take them outside the sphere of Philadelphia. No matter where they go, Night Panther is sure to seduce all whom cross their path. - Shaylin O’Connell
