What Philly bands / venues does everyone like? Any venues you know of specifically highlighting garage punk / rock'n'roll?
Also, if you’re in a band: I’m always looking for garage / punk / surf / rockabilly groups to play shows with in the Philadelphia area. Send me a message with your band’s information!
The Improbables, The Scovilles, St. James and The Apostles (psyche,) The Midnight Beat, The GTVs, and Thee Shut Downs are a few.
No venues that really highlight garage, you just get a good show here and there. Watch The Station, JRs, PhilaMOCA. KFN and Johnny Brenda's for larger names.
BTW, these guys were just added to The Station show on 8/24, really good!

Thanks for the links kopper. I saw Explosive Head at the M-Room and they played an awesome set.
Would second (third?) any vote for The Improbables, St. James & The Apostles and GTVs. All put on amazing live shows. Green Rock Tavern and The Station rule too!
