Photo Recap: Obits, Creepoid & LE Yikes SURF CLUB at Underground Arts

Since winning our Best of 2011 Poll, Creepoid has added a new member Jeff White on slide guitar and guitarist Pete Joe Urban moved to San Antonio to be with his girlfriend while she finishes up her graduate degree (she’ll be done in May, and they’ll be returning to Philly soon) so performances by the full band have been few and far between lately. That is why last night was a real treat having them all together again in Philly tearing things up in the side room (our first time seeing a show there) at Underground Arts with Obits and LE Yikes SURF CLUB. Surprisingly, no instruments were destroyed; however, their set still remained as explosive and intense as ever. The band has been working on another album, and a lot of the new songs were on display. Expect a more psych rock feel containing Creepoid’s signature dark demeanor. Our favorite was the longest jam of the night which continually morphed catching us off-guard with each sonic shift. They currently don’t have a name for the song yet, but it will definitely be on the new album. The band seemed very excited about how the “medley” turned out in the studio. It was a fun evening, and you can checkout our photos from last night HERE. (Photo by Zach Blum)

Creepoid Opening for Obits at Underground Arts March 5

Hankering for a quick fix of melodrama and some intense shoegaze-y psych rock? Then get your ass down to Underground Arts tonight where Philly’s own Creepoid will be opening for Sub Pop’s Obits. Their grungy, slowcore-inspired tunes will have you entranced in no time. The band is currently working on the follow-up (which will also be released via No Idea Records) to their impressive full-length album Horse Heaven. Also on the bill will be basement-dwelling surf rockers LE Yikes SURF CLUB, who spent last summer touring the country in support of their record Yikes (Grizzly). Yeah - once again, the weathermen were full of shit about snow coming our way so you have no reason to miss this show. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 7:30pm, $12, 21+ - Ed Newton

Weekend Warrior, December 7 - 9

Creepoid austere soundscapes are so pleasing that it's hard to focus on anything else while taking in their songs. The band is currently working on the follow-up to their impressive first LP Horse Heaven, which gave birth to beauties like opener “Wishing Well,” a slow-building Americana ballad in the vein of Low whose woozy lyrics take on an incantatory quality by the song’s midpoint. They’ll be supporting at Union Transfer tonight Pittsburghers Black Moth Super Rainbow, whose bizarrely entrancing “Windshield Smasher” incorporates a stadium-sized effects palette and breathes new life into what sounds a whole lot like Gary Glitter, and Casket Girls, a similar project from BMSR members. Union Transfer, 1024 Spring Garden St., 8pm, $14 - $15, All Ages - Alyssa Greenberg.
