Let’s Do the Timewarp at JB’s Jan. 22


Start making plans because this weekend TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb will be letting loose their twisted concoction of blues, Bob Dylan and whiskey on our inebriated eardrums. Caught somewhere between rickety small town saloon and laying on your couch hungover the next day, Kong and the Bomb bring together everything we love and hate about drunken nights spent drifting between the barroom floor and your bedroom pillow. They’ll be joined on this alcohol-soaked evening by The Great Unknown, who won’t remain that way for long. Their lyrics are wound so tightly around soulful guitar melodies that bring up images of oh so familiar settings and experiences. This fearsome foursome who began as a duo in a quiet, dark basement have emerged to the surface and are ready to show what they have to offer. Looks like they’ll be pulling double duty this weekend at The Spinning Leaves‘ Vinyl Release Party! Capping off the bill will be the strange and wildly entertaining army of Toy Soldiers. All three of these bands are unique, different and ready to rock your winter socks right off your chilly feet. So get your skinny jean wearing asses out to Johnny Brenda’s tonight for a show that will timewarp you to a rollicking partay! Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+Meaghan McCafferty
