Belated thanks to everyone who came out to the first Yam Jam Kickasserole! Our Thanksgiving Eve show rocked thanks to you guys, and the excellent Local Shots bands we had at the Ardmore Music Hall. One of those bands was The Great SOCIO. Here's a song from them called "The Lioness" off their Modern Grip EP. Get an advance copy of their yet-to-be-released EP Find The Time on New Year's Eve at the The Grape Room - get all the info here!
Time for the final Local Shots Artist of the Month for 2013! December's band leans to the heavy side, and they're called Estride- you may remember them from the Local Shots Volume 6 compilation a while back. Today we played the song "Walk Away" which you can stream now here on WMMR.com. Make sure you check them out this Friday at the Ardmore Music Hall (tickets & info at ArdmoreMusic.com) and show 'em some love on Facebook too!
Tomorrow night is the debut of a brand new band out of Philly, Overcoming Gravity. Sound familiar? It's ex-members of our March 2013 Artist of the Month, Give Me Gravity, plus our friend Phil La Placa on vocals. Check out the track "Her Name" here on the Local Shots Podcast, and hear a couple more new tunes on ReverbNation. Check them out tomorrow at the M Room - get all of the details here! (And if you've got any cash leftover after your Black Friday shopping, stop by the band's Indiegogo page to help fund the recording of their debut album.)
Yesterday I had the chance to chat with Billy Howerdel about A Perfect Circle.

Billy also shares whe he enjoys doing outside of music and a few bands he is into. Their new CD, Three Sixty A Greatest Hits Collection which has By And Down, is available today. I really enjoyed my conversation with Billy. More info at their website and facebook page. You can also follow A Perfect Circle on Twitter. Thanks for listening,
Today, I had a chance to speak with Ray Davies about his new book, Americana, which is a Fantastic Read. The book starts with him being shot in New Orleans and continues to travel back and forth all the way through sharing many stories that make for an incredible book. The use of lyrics in the book tie in beautifully and reading some of the great stories about the Kinks was a blast. I laughed out loud many times and definitely went through a full gamut of of emotions while reading Americana. It is available now here. Besides the writing of the book and the process we discussed some aspects and stories without giving too much away, yet hopefully enticing you to want to read about Ray Davies' fascinating journey through life and his Americana tales. Find out who Ray believes is the ideal rhythm section, he discusses Preservation Act 1 & 2 being relevant today. Don't want to give too much away. Check out Americana. Follow Ray on Facebook. Thanks for listening,
