Waterfront Wednesdays with Juston Stens & The Get Real Gang Aug. 4

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Here’s some Philly Music 101: Dr. Dog is a doted on local indie outfit that plays a much-loved brand of vintage psychedelic rock. They toured with rock ‘n’ roll sherpas My Morning Jacket. Juston Stens pounded the skins for Dr. Dog from the early-aughts, but has since parted ways to chase his “own musical vision”. Now he’s started his own ensemble, Juston Stens & The Get Real Gang – a scopic collective cavorting quixotic heartfelt alt-pop with a nostalgic rock veneer. The crew just released their self-titled debut EP on Park the Van Records, and recorded a slightly mired version of Tom Petty’s “Don’t Come Around Here No More”, which may be just as neat as the original. Now here’s your homework: Tonight, Stens will make his debut appearance at Penn Treaty Park, headlining the Philebrity Rock ‘N’ Roll BBQ as part of the park’s annual summer series, Waterfront Wednesdays. You’re required to experience it with a large bottle of wine. For extra credit, catch opener local songbird Birdie Busch, and skip work (or school) the next day. Cheers! PennTreaty Park, 1341 N. Delaware Avenue, 7pm, Free, All Ages – Annamarya Scaccia
