The Swimmers and Hoots & Hellmouth were just named by Magnet Magazine as two Philadelphia bands defining the shape of local music. Click here to read the story.
Delaware-based The Spinto Band, with two big selling albums to their credit, will headline the show. The College Media Journal (CMJ) said of Bucks County-based Illinois, "they're just fun to watch." And, Slo-Mo, a Philadelphia hip-hop/bluegrass band will round out the impressive line-up of local rising music stars.
