Brett Fest: A Benefit for Brett Talley
Posted 8/14/2013 6:38:00 PM

Brett Fest is an all-ages benefit concert THIS FRIDAY August 16th at World Cafe Live in Philly, and all proceeds go to the family of Brett Talley to assist with his medical expenses. Brett was recently diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia, and the music scene that he has loved and contributed to for years [through his work with Ike, Outset and other bands] has decided to give back and help him out with this show. Click here to purchase tickets.

The lineup includes reunion sets by Ike and Pawnshop Roses, John & Brittany, Matt Duke, The Better Half, and a whole bunch more. Get the full lineup and get tickets in advance on the Facebook event page. Today we played a brand new single from Ike called "The Other Shoe Always Drops" and starting tomorrow [8/15] you can pay what you wish for it on Ike's Bandcamp page. Proceeds from the download go to the family of Brett Talley as well. [And if you want to stream the single first, head over to the Local Shots Podcast!]

If you cannot make the show and would still like to donate, you can visit www.ikeonline.net. They set up a paypal account where you can donate directly to Brett right on the main page. See you this Friday at World Cafe Live!

Jaxon's Interviews:

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 RubyTheHatchet.com.

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.

 
What's up Philly? Jaxon here. Check out my show weekday afternoons from 3-7 on the Mighty MMR. We'll have Jaxon's iPod, the Mystery Theme and even the occasional game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. What better way to enjoy that contact high you scored while listening to Pierre?
