Free Friday Show @ The Knitting Factory March 14th!

Super excited to play Free Fridays at the Knitting Factory on March 14th with Blackfoot Gypsies!  The free festivities start at midnight so get your rest, kiddies!  But first tell Facebook you’re coming.  They like to keep track of these things.

Indie Shuffle Premieres “Pretty Pretty” Video!

To brighten your Valentine’s Day, the folks at IndieShuffle.com (who premiered our video for 17 a while back) were kind enough to premiere our newest video, Pretty Pretty.  They think our “sense of humor can make anything bearable…even Valentine’s Day” and that if you don’t have a date, the Kennedy James directed video,  is like “your own personal one-on-one” with me.  I’d have to agree.  Lots of blank stares and furtive glances.  See for yourself!

 

 

Video Session with Out of Town Films!

Philly’s finest filmmaker collective, Out of Town Films, let us come to their awesome Berks Warehouse location and play a couple songs.  Thanks to Michael,  Paul and Sam for making the video look and sound great.

 

Check out the video for the first song we did, “Cool Joe,” off our latest Paper Garden Records release, Strange Range.

And thanks for our local Philly Deli Magazine for giving the video and Out of Town Films a nice plug!

Kate Bracaglia, Philly’s premiere purveyor of indie-pop, was kind enough to choose our Kung Fu Necktie show with ARMS and Attic Dancers as a Philly.com Concert Pick of the Week.

 

the band headlines Kung Fu Necktie, where their sparkling melodies and brass and woodwind-tinged arrangements are sure to brighten your Monday night.

 

Our Paper Garden Record label mates ARMS are actually headlining but who’s counting?  Thanks, Kate!

Tubefilter Digs Our Disco!

Tubefilter, an aggregator of online awesomeness, and INDMUSIC, the peeps who monetize Youtube plays, have teamed up to make weekly Must Watch Music Video selections.  And wouldn’t you know it?  They selected our video for 17 as their first Must Watch pick!  

 

Check it out! 

 
Nostalgia is common during the holidays, and it’s a welcome feeling. With that in mind, The City and Horses have rolled out ‘17‘, a disco-themed rock tune that arrives just in time for your latest New Year’s playlist and is sure to leave you yearning for a roller disco to pop up in your neighborhood.
Local Love from The Key and Deli Mag!

Not only were we honored to be asked to play the Work Drugs Christmas Spectacle and share the Johnny Brenda’s stage with two of our favorite Philly bands (Work Drugs and Teen Men), but we were honored to get some local love from the Philly press.  

 

First, previewing the night the Deli said that the show was,

 

a rare opportunity to catch the delightfully eccentric open-book, pop stylings of The City and Horses.

 

“Delightfully eccentric” is a polite description of me.

 

Then, following the show, The Key’s own Kate Bracaglia was kind enough to say some nice things about our set.

 

Philly symphonic pop fivesome The City and Horses took the stage next, filling the air with lush, multi-part harmonies, live saxophone and flute, and front man Marc Cantone’s blissful melodies.
