First, let me start by saying that this category, like all of them, could have gone a number of ways. For example, I could have chosen a song with the grit of Roi & the Secret People’s “Hungry.” Just as tempting was the prospect of choosing VoirVoir’s youthful anthem, “I Wanna,” or virtually any track from Rofo Audio. In the end, however, I went a bit south to Philly, where The Wayside Shakeup released their single, “Stay Up,” earlier this year.
Allentown seems to rule the week, both in terms of variety and number of shows on this week’s list.

Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!
Many of us on the music scene can relate to a song like The Wayside Shakeup’s “Stay Up.” We’re often out late, doing what we love, meanwhile someone waits patiently (or impatiently) at home for us to finish for the evening. As someone who had a special lady waiting for me as I attended the band’s show at MilkBoy last Friday, this song certainly speaks to me.
Naturally, then, you can imagine my excitement when they transitioned into the new single during their set. I was so taken in by the moment that I just had to hit record!
Consider this just a sample of the band’s great live show, which you need to make sure you see if you haven’t yet. They’re as tight a band as you’ll hear on the indie scene and, as an added bonus, they’re super cool to work with!
It felt great to be back in Philadelphia as The Wayside Shakeup opened up for Animal Years and Wild Adriatic at MilkBoy. The band’s set was tight as the guys played selections from their entire catalog, including their newest single, “Stay Up,” and selections from their funky “Private Party” EP.
Overall, Wayside’s set was a fun beginning to a great night of indie music in the City of Brotherly Love. Enjoy some photos from our night on the town, and be prepared for an extra treat from the show in the coming days.
The Wayside Shakeup has been a longtime mainstay on the Philly scene. Rob Volansky from the band joins us to talk about their projects, past and present. Also, we have a brief preview of some of the things to come on the scene in the next few months.
