Philadelphia's goodnight/goodluck doesn't shy away from thunderous drums, wiry guitars, and understated, yet vibrant melodies. The band pulls equally from the chaos of punk acts like Japandroids, Bear Vs. Shark, and Constantines as well as the intricacies of modern indie like Rainer Maria, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Minus the Bear, and Tokyo Police Club.

A self-recorded four-track demo was released in April 2017 and picked up the very next day and favorably reviewed by WXPN's The Key. Buoyed by the positive reception and a string of well-received live performances, the band recorded their debut EP the following winter with Joe Reinhart (Hop Along/Algernon Cadwallader) at The Headroom in Philadelphia. "missing" is scheduled for release on May 12, 2018.

goodnight/goodluck is Sarah Puleo, Eric Zrinsky, Ed Taylor, Jayson Verdibello, and Alex Brown.

Wax Wav
WAX WAV is a DIY punk rock band from Philadelphia, PA. Another one of those? Yes.

In November of 2016, 3 members of Philadelphia indie rockers The Danger O's, Nick Palmer, Justin Johnson and Abe Koffenberger, decided it was time for a change. The drummer and singer switched places. A dozen songs were written and the first show was played in February of 2017. In November of 2017, keyboardist Lynna Stancato, formerly of The National Rifle and Bondage & Discipline, was welcomed aboard, adding a unique sonic element to the group’s throwback punk style.

WAX WAV has played very loud music in front of people who compared what they heard to the Clash, Jawbreaker and Against Me. The Deli Magazine wrote of the EP, "hardwiring into a familiar desire to break loose, while simultaneously fighting to hold it together, the group feels akin to such acts as The Replacements."

The debut “EP1” was made available on BandCamp on 11/3/2017 and was released as a zine on 1/26/2018 on local imprint Aqualung Records.
