Satanized Releases a Limited Edition Split 7” with Aids Wolf


From the depths of Hell (well, actually the headquarters of Badmaster Records in W. Philly), Satanized brings us a limited edition split 7” with the Canucks from Montreal Aids Wolf. Side B features one long track by Satanized called “Hope Is Lack of Information” that Badmaster says sounds like “a 24 hour shift at a steel mill turned mental institution that only employs the criminally insane. Lots of blood everywhere on this one. Brutal sonic violence. Satanized produce a truly great recording that captures everything that makes this band so awe-inspiring in a live setting. This 7” will leave you holding your lover a little bit closer at night and questioning the morality of bringing a child into this uncaring world.” Hmm…maybe this did come from the depths of Hell. Well, you can also purchase it at http:///www.badmasterrecords.com/. myspace.com/stnzd666 - H.M. Kauffman

The Extraordinaires Bring Their Madcap Hijinx to JB’s Jan. 9


Words fail a writer somewhat when trying to classify a group like The Extraordinaires. Are they folkies? Are they old-timey, boogie woogie saloon music? Are they Beatles-esque, 60's pop? All of these things are accurate to some extent, but you can't help but feel a little guilty after saying each of them because it's quite clear that The Extraordinaires occupy their own oddly familiar universe. However, one thing that's constant is their theatrics and off-kilter sense of humor. They have a song called "Hi Five the Cactus" (about a cactus fellow named Hi Five who enjoys giving hi-fives...seriously). Their albums are released as conceptual, hand-made storybooks. But there's a distinct difference between nonsense and gimmickry, and The Extraordinaires certainly aren't gimmickry, as their fun melodies and memorable lyrics attest to. And fresh off a stint of shows with gypsy-punk pioneers Gogol Bordello, they show no signs of stopping. Enjoy them tonight at Johnny Brenda’s when members of The Armchairs join Jay Purdy and Matt Gibson on stage as part of their madcap band with opener New Jersey’s Real Estate! Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave, 9 p.m., $10, 21+ myspace.com/theextraordinaires - Joe Poteracki



Levee Drivers Ready to Kick Some Ass at North Star Bar Jan. 9


After such a strong showing in our annual Best of Philly Emerging Artists Open Contest, it’s nice to see that we’ll already have a chance to hear Levee Drivers perform live in 2010. It seems like this band “born in the wrong era” is beginning to make their mark on the present landscape of the local indie music scene. Count on their sound to emulate artists like The Man In Black and Wilco when they rock out tonight at North Star Bar. They’ll be joined by Yardley’s powerpopsters Run To Sandy. North Star Bar, 2639 Poplar St., 9pm, $8, 21+ myspace.com/hentaimusic - Bill McThrill



Da Comrade! Ist An Tritone Jan. 9


It is still kind of sad to see the house show spot Chernobyl no longer hosting events. But ever since Da Comrade! moved on from their venue/home, they’ve continued to blow it up like the disaster that it was named for! The War From Your Living Room was another favorite release of mine last year. Everything from the recording to the design of the album cover was a full blown group effort by the band and their Chernobyl Collective. Catching their live performance usually adds up to seeing them painted up and doing something quite unexpected on top of their incendiary music. That’s why catching them at Tritone tonight might just have to be your prerogative. They’ll be joined by Tongue Sculptors whose music seems to echo everything from lo-fi garage to Tom Waits. Tritone, 1508 South St., 9pm, $5, 21+ myscape.com/dacomrade - Bill McThrill
