Edit: Article has been updated to reflect change in band name.
Bleeding Rainbow is the Philly band formally known as Reading Rainbow from Fishtown. The three piece has been making quite a name for themselves with their own brand of indie/punk/beach/garage/psychedelic music – a complex one with loud drums and killer guitar solos like Best Coast with more pronounced electric guitars and one girl & two dudes.
For their first Union Transfer performance on November 17th the band opened up for Los Campesinos! and delivered a solid performance in spite of questionable sound maintenance (also noted by The Swollen Fox in their piece). We would love to see these guys in a smaller venue to really feed off the vibe, and since they are local we know this will be possible!
With multiple 7″ers out of solid singles adorned with magical artwork in addition to two Long Plays, there is plenty of music of theirs to jam to.
If you wanted to hear about a few local bands to get behind, this is definitely one. Check out some video from their performance below and be sure to catch them at Johnny Brenda’s November 25th!:
