Last Wednesday night, the intimate upper room of 1100 Chestnut featured a talented trio of lesser known acts hosted by Equal Vision Records: indie rock outfit Northern Faces. Albany NY’s most talented up-and-comers have begun to make a second home in Philly, having played the TLA, Electric Factory, XFINITY Live!, Boot and Saddle, and Union Transfer in less than 3 years. This is due in most part to the warm embrace of their Philadelphia fans, though the stellar vegan cuisine is probably a close second.

MilkBoy
is one of the best small rooms in the Philly rock scene, so it was a natural fit for a band who puts their fans and music well ahead of any attempts for fame and fortune. Besides their strong live set, the most amazing thing about the band is how much they value meeting people and making friends. For hours before the doors opened, they hung around the bar at MilkBoy with their new and old friends, including Philly indie rockers Luke Eccles of Awaking Mercury and Kat Stein of Sonnder. Beer was flowing, dinner was shared, and great conversations were had. Once the doors opened, the fellowship moved upstairs to continue talking over drinks while everyone anxiously awaited the first act of the night.
