Bong Hits For Jesus - You Tried It Up The Street
Posted 4/10/2013 6:42:00 PM

April brings us not only warm weather, but another Local Shots Artist of the Month: Bong Hits For Jesus! This band blends reggae, punk and hip-hop to create a fun and refreshing rock sound. You may remember them from the Local Shots Vol.6 compilation and last year's New Year's Eve party at the Factory. Yesterday we played the song "You Tried It Up The Street", which you can stream now. You can get more music, photos and links on their Artist of the Month page. Join the party on Saturday 4/20 as Bong Hits For Jesus rocks The Legendary Dobbs on South Street!

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.

Tunage on the Local Shots Podcast is brought to you today by Goodnight Lights! This song, which has an excellent 90s-fuzz vibe, is called "Convinced" and it'll be included on their upcoming EP - keep an eye on goodnight-lights.com for more info on that release. Check out the brand spankin' new video for the track below. Their next show is this Friday at The Fire; get details HERE.

Looking to take advantage of the amazing weather forecasted for this weekend? Here's another show that we on the Local Shots Podcast recommend: Soraia will be playing the V Fund Benefit tomorrow at the Robbinsville Indoor Stadium in NJ! Also catch Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes and John Eddie there - tickets are available HERE. Check out more show dates on Soraia.com. Here's a song off the record In The Valley Of Love And Guns called "Want What I Want".

Wanna be a Local Shot?

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!
