Hair Rocket to share the fun at John & Peter’s
Friday, April 16, 2010
Feel it, and let it go.
Many musicians can tell you that the “experience” of making sound is as much fun as it is therapeutic. But a pseudo-new band making waves in the music scene doesn’t have to say it — it shows.
Formed in 2008 by former Aderbat musician Chris Blasucci, Hair Rocket pumps out what it calls “enlightenment through cathartic art.”
“We cut, We light, and We release,” as the band’s slogan goes.
That motto rings true on the band’s debut EP, “Novelty,” which combines garage and glam with a touch of folk and rock.
Tonight, you can see the band live at John & Peter’s Place in New Hope, Pa. Playing with Hair Rocket are Supergoose and Thomas Francis Takes His Chances– both well-known, alt-punk bands that are popular in the area.
But first, back to Hair Rocket.
Though a relatively new band, Hair Rocket has been garnering play and buzz in Philadelphia and New York City.
Earlier this week, DJ Lottie of New York City’s “Break Thru Radio” featured Hair Rocket on her show (spotlighting Philadelphia music) for a second time. The band performed an in-studio session for the station in March.
The group is tight — splashing together interesting chord combinations on the electric guitar with hold-steady, heart-heavy yet upbeat, lyrics.
While the songs carry a sense of lost and longing, the message is delivered in a way that requires no sympathy: the sound is fun, catchy, and it doesn’t sound like much of what you hear on the radio (a good thing).
