Philly v. New York

I attended a really great show last night in Bushwick, NY. Long time friends from Temple, Philadelphia Slick tore it down on the tiny stage and intimate setting of the Bushwick Music Studios. (who served chili and beer to attendees)

Great show. It opened with Ellis Ashbrook, who've played with Philly Slick before, and represented in their home ground, reigning from just a few blocks away of the studio. Ellis Ashbrook was great, it was my first time hearing them and I immediately loved the sound of lead vocalist and keyboard player, Natalie Lowe. The band played many original songs to the local crowd and also a killer cover of Heart's "Baracuda".

Second act, Akilles + The Oddicy, who have also shared the stage with Philadelphis Slick, took the show to hip hop vibes. First time seeing them as well, and I must say, I hope to catch them again.

Philly Slick of course, rocked the house, and Noesis never disappointments with his clever poetic lyrics that are backed incredibly by the band with MKap's flowing keys, Mike P's glowing bass lines and El's hard rockin' drum beats. I love this band, and they make me miss the 215 lifestyle, hardcore. Check them out at or on facebook.

Videos of Philly Slick to come soon, so stay tuned!
