Weathervane Studio Concert: Ellen Siberian Tiger // Julia Rainer

Weathervane Studio Concert - Ellen Siberian Tiger // Julia Rainer

Julia Rainer has been making original music in Philadelphia since 2004. As a kid, her dad took her to see Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers—and her education progressed from there. Influenced by artists like Hank Williams (the original), Neil Young, Sam Cooke, Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Nico, Television, Cat Power, and Aimee Mann, Rainer writes folk songs—that sometimes creep into other genres—about love, loss, depression, addiction, salvation, and the common difficulties of humanity. Her vocals, which have been described as powerful, sultry, smoky, and aching, along with her bare-bones melodic guitar playing are an honest depiction of her personal experience, that any feeling person can surely relate to.

First Time's a Charm

First Time's the Charm is back! What started in 2013 and happened again in 2016 will be held for a third time this summer. (COME OUT TO SUPPORT SEVERAL GRP SUPERSTARS!!!) 

The idea is simple: as members of the DIY music community we need to do everything we can to make our scenes less homogeneously white, straight, and male. To that end we are holding a two day concert made up of entirely new bands that must include women, people of color, queer, trans and gender non-conforming people, and those with disabilities.

While events like this are always important, we feel that within the current political climate they are even more necessary in order to provide a space for those who are most often pushed to the margins.
