Dirty Denim plays Rickshaw Stop 07.27

Bay-area garage/punk band Dirty Denim will be playing Rickshaw Stop on July 27th. On their self-titled demo, the four-piece is at once playful and attitudinal. The three-song demo incorporates elements of punk, surf, new wave, indie and even hints of Motown. Yet, Dirty Denim's sound is very much their own, and it's instantly catchy. Chances are, you'll be humming "Meant to Be" for a few days after one listen. -Ethan Ames


From the digital submissions: young talent Ice Cream Orphan

Ice Cream Orphan, a Boston-based project that started out with vocalist Cam Pulaski and evolved into a full-fledged, three-piece indie band, just released their sophomore album Things From My Mouth this June. This often upbeat LP takes cues from early Death Cab, providing sad songs you can dance to, like “10th Anniversary” (streaming below), with its deceptively fast-paced and catchy chorus (“But you’re the only one that I could ever hold / And now I need you, though I left you months ago”) and “You Just Wanted to Feel Loved” with its trombone part. Their next show will be on August 5th at a house show in Tewksbury, MA. - Lilly Milman

Moonrise Nation

Moonrise Nation has released a video for their single, “Common Fear”. The song comes from their debut LP, Glamour Child, which is dropping this Friday, July 28th.

As previously posted, you can catch Moonrise Nation at Schubas on July 29th with Deli Chicago Fav, Emily Blue.



Frontman for Hamilton indie trio Young Rival, Aron D’alesio is set to release his debut solo record on August 25th on Paper Bag Records. Young Rival always has interesting music videos so I was excited to see what D’alesio would come up with for the first solo single “Diamond Ring”. This video is actually very in line with the themes of the song as it follows a seemingly lonely man around town in cold weather as he reflects on perhaps some love gone wrong…but one woman’s past could lead to a new woman’s future as we see at the end - loneliness can be cured. The track is a great indie-garage-pop tune with beautiful harmonies and jangly guitar work soaked in reverb. Expect some release party announcements very soon. – Kris Gies
