Christopher Walking, Twin Pines, Airman Trout, and Leaky Soups at The Don’t Tread on Me House, East Falls. May 24, 2013

This was an awesome house show in Northeast Philadelphia, and the first show at the Don’t Tread On Me House. The first band I saw was Airman Trout, who had some crazy music which they blasted along with the singer’s extremely raw vocals. A very energetic performance by a three piece band. Next up was Leaky Soups, who consisted of the three members of Airman Trout along with a ukelele player who also offered a softer voice with some very meaningful lyrics. This band seemed to be the sensitive side of Airman Trout, and it was great. Twin Pines, Alex Lindquist of Crybaby, played a solo set of his own songs, but was able to have the energy of a full band. His guitar playing was tight and his vocals are perfect for an acoustic set. His lyrics and sing-along melodies made for one of the best sets of the night. Check out the bandcamp below for an awesome full band EP. Christopher Walking was awesome. I don’t like to compare any bands to Algernon Cadwallader, but these guys definitely reminded me of them, plus some more angst. An awesome band with shredding guitar and passionate yelling and singing. I cannot wait to hear more from this band.
