As main man for EGO ALIEN TED BUNCH is a vicious supporter of the Philadelphia/South Jersey original music scene, and can be found at various area clubs on either side of the Delaware River, on any given night.

The turnout was huge and the love and support was greatly appreciated. It cannot be stated strongly enough how supportive the South Jersey/Philadelphia music scene is. EGO ALIEN and THIRSTY RECORDS thank you.

Ego Alien would like to thank Mati Shernoff and Harper’s Pub & Restaurant for an excellent venue and a warm and friendly environment. The audio was kick ass and Ryan Bleaken did a fantastic job mixing.

A big thanks goes out to JOHN FAYE for hosting and playing numerous classics.

4:44 sounded great and promoted the show like madmen, which had a positive impact on the large turnout.

The surprise acoustic KID FELIX set was a local scene highlight for early 2017.

PRAVDA closed the night with a tight, super heavy, melody-laden darkness which stunned us all

Thanks to Si Marks from for managing merchandising.

Thanks to Rob Sankey, Anthony Friedlander, Jack Friederichsen, Camille Pertuo, Chris Kuzmanick for the photos.

Over the last little period Thirsty’s Lowball Jack had the pleasure of recording KELVYN BELL’s new LP, “ST. LOUIS BLU: KELVYN BELL PLAYS ACOUSTIC GUITAR“. It’s about what one man can do while working alone without a safety net… just the spontaneous sound of wood, wire and dangerous skill.

Some will call it avant garde Jazz, but it’s bigger than that. This very real record will be available everywhere on Monday, 11/16. Get yours!
