The Murder Capital

Posted Oct. 3, 2019, 2:40 p.m.

When Irish five-piece The Murder Capital recently released their debut album When I Have Fears, it was rapturously received by critics and music fans alike, with the band’s post-punk sound viscerally tapping into grief and disillusionment across the album’s ten tracks. The record was inspired by the suicide of a close friend of frontman James McGovern, and its title is aptly taken from a sonnet by the 18th Century Romantic poet John Keats, that centres on a fear of mortality, and not achieving all of the things you want to before your demise. The Murder Capital started attracting attention with a live recording of their seething, bruising song “More Is Less" in May 2018. At this point, as ...

Sean Agnew/R5 Productions

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:05 a.m.

The man Philadelphia Weekly called the city's 'last indie man standing,' Sean Agnew and R5 Productions have been at the forefront of the City of Brotherly Love's adamant opposition to Clear Channel's complete takeover of the city for a number of years now. Remaining staunchly independent in spite of the conglomerate's attempt to usurp his venues, Sean and R5 have slowly but surely become not only the longest running and most influential DIY concert promotion agencies in all of Philadelphia, but also a symbol for not giving in to big business and staying true to one ...
