In case you aren’t from around the area you should know that Philly is much more than a cheese steak cut between football and commercials or a fucking class trip to see the liberty bell. We have a vibrant local music scene that is awesome and it warrants a proper online source that’s as DIY as the scene itself! So, in the summer of 2013 we hosted a BBQ/Benefit show at Jr’s Bar in South Philly and raised over $100 for Operation Ava which is a no kill animal shelter! We didn’t want one particular band to claim that they had put the whole thing together so we formed Radio Static! After the show’s success we figured why not put up a blog that celebrates the music that is indigenous to our city! So here it is.
- Shows (Current acts & locations)
- Artists (A to Z listing of local artists)
- Labels (Philly local recording labels)
