Satellite Hearts Baring Their Soul at The Troc May 18

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Trying to pinpoint Satellite Hearts‘ sound is like running a marathon without any training – it’s simply foolish. You can say the Philly three-piece exudes the heart and soul of classic rock, but that doesn’t give props to the strands of clap-along sing-song acousto-punk strewn throughout. You can say that they’re pure rock ‘n’ roll, but that doesn’t do justice to the rough-hewn climb of ’80s indie underground raggedly sewn into their sonic fabric. You can make up another rock-based genre to label Satellite Hearts, but maybe you’d do better describing them after you check them out tonight in the Balcony Bar at the Trocadero. Local raspy, wise-beyond-her-years folk fantasinator Spirit & Dust (a.k.a. Kristen Sylvester) will provide support tonight alongside spunky indie-rock outfits A Little Affair and Adams Wilson, both hauling their way in from dirty Jerz. Looks like your Hump Day just got booked. Balcony Bar at the Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 9pm, $8, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
