JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound along with Escort made a stop at the TLA in Philly on Wednesday. Despite a less than stellar turnout (it was a Wednesday night), both bands put on incredible performances. Escort, a contemporary disco band out of Brooklyn, played a cover of RAC’s Hollywood that I found to be the highlight of their set. JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound’s set featured songs off their new album Howl, as well as highlights from their previous 2 studio efforts. Along with their performance of their single “Rouse Yourself” my favorite part of JC’s set was their cover of fellow Chicago band, Wilco’s, “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart”. JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound put on a great show. I highly recommend checking out their new album and catching them live if they play in your city. Dates are here.
