The Jackson Rider - Rock Steady
Posted 4/25/2012 6:26:00 PM

It's Jaxon's Local Shots Podcast! The Local Shots Artist of the Month for the month of April is The Jackson Rider. They've got a fun - sort of reggae vibe, perfect for the onset of spring, and sure to put you in a good mood! Today we featured their song Rock Steady on the air. We think you'll like it. Be sure to check the Local Shots Artist of the Month page HERE for photos, a bio, show dates and more from The Jackson Rider. You can also 'Like' the band on Facebook HERE!

The Jackson Rider played an awesome WMMR Showcase Show at The Legendary Dobbs last Wednesday night (4/18) and absolutely killed it. If you missed the show, or you just can't wait to see them play again live, check them out at one of their upcoming shows: June 16th at Milkboy's Center City location (with The Better Half and Modern Colour), and July 28th at World Cafe Live in Philly for their "Mid-Summer Classic". We'll see you out there! Enjoy!

It's Monday. You're bummed about it. How about some music to wake you up? We're here for ya: this Local Shots Podcast features Philly alt-rockers Love A Lunatic. Stream today's pick, "Breathe", and keep up with the band over at ReverbNation.

Here's 3 reasons we like Ruby The Hatchet: swirling riffs, haunting vocals, psychedelic jams. What more could you want? Hear the track "Paralyzed" on today's Local Shots Podcast- it's off their new Eliminator EP which is available on a variety of mediums, including vinyl and cassette. See them at North Star Bar on Friday May 9th (info here) and hear more at

Mo Lowda & The Humble is one of the coolest band names we've seen to date, which is why they are April's Local Shots Artist of the Month! ...Kidding- though the name is groovy, the music is a way better reason to check these guys out. The Temple U. trio gained a lot of traction after the release of their first full-length record Curse The Weather, building upon their established reputation as one of the best alt-rock bands in the city. Today we played the track "The Way Home"; stream it now, and get show dates plus a whole lot more on the Artist of the Month page.

In a band? Want to be involved with Jaxon's Local Shots?

For the Local Shots Artist of the Month feature, the Local Shots Podcast or for on-air consideration, we would love it if you'd send a CD to the station. Just circle one or two tracks that you like best or think would be best suited for WMMR. Put it on a CD and send it over. We try to listen to the CD's each day as they arrive, so it's easier for us to have a physical copy. Our address is below. Please include your website and any other information you would like us know know about your band. Details on upcoming shows are especially helpful.

Thanks very much! Looking forward to hearing it!
