Philadelphia Daily News : Sound off about this week’s shows

Philadelphia Daily News : Our critics sound off about this week’s shows : Full Article

Slo-Mo, featuring Mic Wrecka, has gotten its buzz back but good. This weekend, they’re dropping the Grade-A, “Gimme What You Got” album (Authentic Records) and celebrating with a couple shows in the home zone. Don’t know from Slo-Mo? Think a groove-centric, one-of-a-kind blend of slide guitar-fueled blues rock (spirited by the Slo-but-supa six-stringer Mike Brenner) and facile, Philly-flavored rap (by his bud Wrecka, aka Doug Jenkins). On this 4th Slo-Mo set, the sultry vocals of Steph Hayes and Susan Rosetti (ex-Stargazer Lily) and trumpeting of Matt Cappy (Jill Scott, Jay-Z, Roots) really crank it up to 11.

World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St., noon today and on WXPN (88.5 FM), free, 215-222-1400, www.xpn.org. Also with the Fractals and Adam & Dave’s Bloodline, Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9 p.m. tomorrow, $10, 215-739-9684, johnnybrendas.com.

  • Any Chance you can get them out west to Denver CO?. Lovin the music out here.. :)

  • Awesome! Glad to hear you're enjoying Slo-Mo as much as we are. Good question about getting them out to CO. I know they're working the East Coast circuit at the moment. Perhaps in 2010? We'll keep you posted!
