Emily Robb is a Philadelphia based musician most known for her solo guitar works as well as her contributions to bands such as Astute Palate, Louie Louie and Lantern. Fall of 2023 saw her second solo release, If I Am Misery Then Give Me Company, a follow up to 2021’s How To Moonwalk, both on the Petty Bunco label and both beloved in the underground. Emily’s playing is rooted in rock ‘n’ roll but flies freely into perpetually uncharted territories. It surges within its own stratosphere, expressing a range of emotions occurring simultaneously or by taking abrupt turns. She utilizes distortion, warmth, tension and familiarity. Her playing is a ride - a sermon in the House of Guitar - with brief evocations of The Velvet Underground, Henry Flynt, and Tetuzi Akiyama’s Don’t Forget To Boogie. Emily records in her own Suddenly Studio and has recently been working on film scores. Stay tuned for her forthcoming split LP with Bill Nace (Body/Head) on Open Mouth Records and catch her on tour this fall and winter.

With local support from the ever evolving experimental music collective Winter Band. Bar opens at 6pm, for Tacos. Music starts after 8pm. 21+
