#Tweetcore Radio Hour, Episode 9

In the latest episode of the #Tweetcore Radio Hour, I chat with Brian Lambert about two of his favorite Tweetcore acts, Matt Moran and Matt Derda & the High Watts. I also play music by 18 Seconds (feat. Bruno Sevigny), Skyjelly & Solilians, Skytone, Malibu Hot Flush, Bill Fever, Emilie Lierre, Gozer Goodspeed, and the LaLaLettes.

Live at the Nail: A Great Night for #Tweetcore!

Just a quick post to share some cool music and say thanks to Scoopski for inviting me and a few other #Tweetcore favorites (and soon-to-be favorites!) to perform at The Nail with him in Ardmore, Pennsylvania last night! The Nail (also known as the Rusty Nail) is a great venue that champions indie music from local and touring and bands. It’s where I saw Scoopski for the first time, along with Phil Yates and BEES! at the show that started me thinking about the larger Tweetcore scene.

The whole show was pretty awesome, with Greg Gallagher, Timothy Simmons, Scoopski, Jackson Vincent, and myself (performing as The Star Crumble!) on the bill. Also pretty cool is that fact that Mike Huff from BEES! took two trains to get to the show. If anyone is #Tweetcoretothemax, it’s Mike! Check out everyone’s music here, then check out the photos from the show below…

Thanks to the Nail for hosting us!
Greg Gallagher kicked off the show with a goth set that included a searing rendition of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game.” Look for an interview with Greg on this blog sometime in the next month or so. In the meantime, check out his music on your favorite streaming platform: Greg Gallagher on Songwhip
Timothy Simmons kept things going with a prog-influenced set of instrumental tunes that he describes as the soundtrack for a movie that hasn’t been made yet. Check out my interview with him from a few months back, and also visit his website, timothysimmons.net, to learn all about his music and new book!
Timothy Simmons joined me for my set. We’ve been friends since high school and have been making music together for almost as long. We’ve recorded together as Simmons and Schuster, and we’ve often played on each other’s recordings.
Performing as The Star Crumble, my set included songs from the debut album from The Star Crumbles, The Ghost of Dancing Slow, as well as a couple of covers and songs from my solo outings.
Needless to say, Scoopski — along with Mrs. Scoopski — brought the house down with #Tweetcore favorites like “Dad Bod,” “Steve and Nancy,” and “Handshake.” Also, a fun coincidence: The “fins up” sign behind him was the perfect complement to “Mermaid Girl.”
Jackson Vincent closed out the night with a haunting set — and some fun back-and-forth with the audience — that included songs from his albums Foxtrot and Normal Tension. Look for an interview with Jackson on this blog in the near future. The guy is #Tweetcore through and through!
Thanks again, Scoopski, for inviting us all out to play… And thanks to the Nail for having us!
