Little Big League

Little Big League - Last Time Rounding the Bases? at Everybody Hits Feb. 27

Due to the selling out of last weekend’s The Loved Ones’s Keep Your Heart anniversary celebration, Little Big League’s return from hiatus prompted the addition of another show this evening at Everybody Hits. But could this be the last time LBL round the bases? With frontwoman Michelle Zauner putting more time into her solo project, Japanese Breakfast, guitarist and longtime bandmate (since the Post Post days – remember those?) Kevin O’Halloran joining Mercury Girls, a veritable fire sale of band goods happening at their recent gigs, and words like “last in the foreseeable future” floating around, I suggest that you make it out tonight to the Girard Avenue batting cages for what might possibly be one last hurrah. They’ll also be supported by “hardcore friends” Lithuania and Pouty, the latest project from Rachel Gagliardi (Slutever) with Cat Park (Amanda X, Bandname). Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $8, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman


Stream Lithuania's Set Recorded at KXLU

Back in November, Lithuania recorded a live session over at LA’s KXLU Radio. The set offers a rollicking sampling of the band’s album Hardcore Friends, available via Lame-O Records. Among the highlights,  “Clumsy & Forgotten”, quickly transitions into “Place of No Tomorrow” while “Hardcore Friends” and “Pieces” provide the final push. Lithuania is scheduled to perform at Everybody Hits February 27, as part of a lineup that also includes Little Big League and Pouty.    


Little Big League Record Release Show at JB's Nov. 7

Tropical Jinx, the beautifully crafted new album by Little Big League, was conceived during a time when singer/guitarist Michelle Zauner was coming to grips with her parents struggles through their marriage – a partners infidelity, sexual issues, and then some. While the collection’s lyrical content is inspired by familial struggles and lost childhood, the instrumental backdrop is vibrant indie music at its finest, and the combination is very worthy of the celebration that will ensue at Johnny Brenda's tonight. Sadly, the show is somewhat bittersweet as the band will be taking a bit of a hiatus after tonight so Michelle can move back to Oregon for a while to support her father after her mother passed away due to cancer. So this evening will be a good opportunity to show your support by relishing in the good times. Since Jesse Radlow and Asher Brooks of Tutlie played a supporting role in the creation of Tropical Jinx, it’s fitting for them to take part in the celebration. And they'll be joined by alt-shoegazers The Spirit of the Beehive and New York's LVL UP. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by Kara Milstein) - Bill McThrill
