Weekend Warrior, January 24 - 26

Self-classified riot grrls Cayetana play indie rock meant for high volumes, with punk styling that lacks the anger typical to the genre. Instead, that rage is replaced by wistfulness - but don’t think that makes their music any less impactful. Singer Augusta Koch croons over fast paced riffs, all the while sharing poignant lyrics that call for a second listen. Rollicking music coupled with rousing, and oft nostalgia-inducing, lyricism is what the band does best, and they have fun doing it. (Check out what I'm talking about in their video for "Hot Dad Calendar" HERE!) Headlining this Sunday’s bill at the First Unitarian Church is Waxahatchee, the rock moniker of indie darling Katie Crutchfield. Her project specializes in storytelling - each song a direct address to the listener, like Crutchfield’s whispering a tale for your ears only. Intense intimacy is the hallmark of Waxahatchee’s music, and last years LP, Cerulean Salt, didn’t stray from the pattern: raw honesty rasped over simple guitar lines that flow from one tale to the next. Also performing is local garage-pop outfit, Heavy Bangs, who create lo-fi songs of personal empowerment; they don’t need to shout for their message to pack a wallop. And Columbus, Ohio pop-punk group All Dogs will round out the lineup, bringing a crashing of cymbals and heavy guitar to the stage. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 8pm, $10, All Ages  - Shaylin O’Connell

New Music Video: "Hot Dad Calendar" - Cayetana

To honor Martin Luther King Jr. yesterday, we took the day off from writing about music to help out with a little painting so forgive us for still playing catch up. Now, we already knew Cayetana's "Hot Dad Calendar" is a helluva catchy tune with an absolutely rad song title, but the South Philly power trio really brings you into the party with their new music video for the single. This has been on serious repeat. Why? Simply - it makes us feel young and alive, which is obviously a good thing. Cayetana are supposed to be kicking off their mini-tour with Waxahatchee and All Dogs tonight at The Mercury Lounge in NYC, but we'll see if the weather allows that to happen. The tour will be closing out in Philly this Sunday, January 26 at the First Unitarian Church. (Photo by Mary Ferrigno)

Tuesday Tune-Out w/Univox’s Josh Jones & Cayetana at PhilaMOCA Sept. 10

Tonight Y-Not Radio continues its curation of this month’s Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA. On the bill this evening will be the sweet baritone vocals of Univox frontman Josh Jones, and all-female power trio Cayetana, who are signed to Tiny Engines. They’ll be screening a Cher/Nicolas Cage 80’s classic that we’ll keep under wraps for legal reasons. “Snap out of it,” and get on over to the Moz. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $5, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman 


Hop Along & Cayetana Opening for The Thermals at Union Transfer May 25

Hop Along, fresh off a victory lap from the recording of their debut album Get Disowned, are opening for cerebral pop-punk powerhouses The Thermals at Union Transfer tonight, along with jangly, exuberant newcomers Cayetana. Anyone who's been following the trajectory of Frances Quinlan et al knows that the trio has a few styles to their name - power-folk, punk riffs, heart-rending anthemics. Get Disowned finds Hop Along throwing each of their trademark sounds up to 11, all while keeping anchored in the bruising, heart-on-sleeve quality with which they began. Cayetana, who share much of Hop Along's immediacy and sunny-meets-pensive atmosphere, are a fitting companion, and of course, opening for The Thermals is no mean feat, one that comes with a fair measure of congratulations for the fledgling outfit who recently signed to Tiny Engines. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8:30pm, $15, 21+ - Alyssa Greenberg
