HOTBED MAKES ITS RETURN WITH SPECIAL GUEST Z BY Z
HOTBED is a Philadelphia-based psych-rock group that met while attending the University of Delaware. Seen to many as a breath of fresh air, the group portrays a familiar yet newborn form of psychedelic rock. HOTBED's debut LP “Florence” represents their sinuous sound devising elements of rock, pop, and dance. Hear their turbulent guitar riffs, electronic echoes and syncopated rhythms evolve through nine tracks full of invigoration and sincerity. Bold yet vulnerable, gritty yet lustrous; the band plans to take their sound to the next level. Through exuberant live performances the music embodies a way of hedonism exceeding expectations.
Z BY Z - With moves like Jagger, hypnotic hooks, and a robust, contagious energy, Z by Z has been turning heads with their cutting-edge brand of pop music that mixes elements of rock and soul. “Philly pop outfit Z by Z is dialed in and ready for commercial radio rotation...This band has hooks, hooks, and more hooks,” said WXPN The Key editor John Vettese. Formed by singer/songwriter and American Idol season XV contestant Harrison Cohen, the band is comprised of Chris Baglivo, Braxton Carter, Harrison Brietling, and Instagram influencer Dan Silver, @thedrummingbeat. Their sound can be described as a mix between Arctic Monkeys, Phoenix, Maroon 5, and Rex Orange County with influences ranging from Daniel Caesar to Paul Simon.
