Many of us on the music scene can relate to a song like The Wayside Shakeup’s “Stay Up.” We’re often out late, doing what we love, meanwhile someone waits patiently (or impatiently) at home for us to finish for the evening. As someone who had a special lady waiting for me as I attended the band’s show at MilkBoy last Friday, this song certainly speaks to me.
Naturally, then, you can imagine my excitement when they transitioned into the new single during their set. I was so taken in by the moment that I just had to hit record!
Consider this just a sample of the band’s great live show, which you need to make sure you see if you haven’t yet. They’re as tight a band as you’ll hear on the indie scene and, as an added bonus, they’re super cool to work with!
It felt great to be back in Philadelphia as The Wayside Shakeup opened up for Animal Years and Wild Adriatic at MilkBoy. The band’s set was tight as the guys played selections from their entire catalog, including their newest single, “Stay Up,” and selections from their funky “Private Party” EP.
Overall, Wayside’s set was a fun beginning to a great night of indie music in the City of Brotherly Love. Enjoy some photos from our night on the town, and be prepared for an extra treat from the show in the coming days.
