MewithoutYou Returns to The Bowery Ballroom

August 10th, 2010

The Philadelphia experimental-rock band mewithoutYou—brothers Aaron (vocals) and Michael Weiss (guitar) and Greg Jehanian (bass) and Rickie Mazzotta (drums)—has released four albums of post-hardcore sounds, spoken-word melodies and religious imagery all rooted in a feisty punk ethos. Although the group’s most recent disc, 2009’s It’s All Crazy! It’s All False! It’s All a Dream!, reveals some of their folk influences. See for yourself when mewithoutYou (above, doing an acoustic “O, Porcupine”) plays The Bowery Ballroom on Thursday.
