I’m pretty psyched that my favorite band, Marah, will be back in town this Friday at Jammin Java (VA) for a full band performance. They put on one kick-ass rock show, along the lines of Bruce and the E Streeters. I especially love their energy, and the raspy, straight-outta-Philly accented vocals of lead singer Dave Bielanko. Marah has recently expanded their lineup to six members, adding Christine Smith on keyboards and vocals. Check them rocking out on “It’s Only Money, Tyrone” here.
There’s also a lot of new Marah music on the way. The band’s got a couple of EPs coming out before the end of 2007, with Can’t Take It With You dropping around Halloween and then the holiday-flavored Counting the Days coming out around November. Those will serve as nice appetizers for the new full-length album, Angels of Destruction, that will be landing in January 2008.
