It’s almost time! Are you excited? Cause I sure as hell am! We’re just three measly days away from the 1st Annual Brick City Sound Riot, and Killing Horse is so deep into this thing that, well… I’m just gonna stop there, because that analogy was about to take a real awkward turn. Anyway, things are gonna kick off at 8PM on Friday with our own Cicada Radio, who I hear are going to be opening the festival with a benediction – of ass-kicking power rock that is. Then, as if that wasn’t enough to get your butts out to the show, Secret Country is gonna be bringing things home with their signature alcohol-drenched, yet utterly delightful, hooks and harmonies as Friday night’s headliner.
UPDATE #5: Brick City Bio for Cicada Radio has been added – we’ve finally caught ‘em all. Hooray! Text and links after the jump. Do it now! And don’t forget to head out to the 1st Annual Brick City Sound Riot, kicking off THIS FRIDAY!!!!! over at Kilkenny’s in Newark, NJ, this Friday. Get your tickets right here

Here’s some words from our favorite blogger Zac Clark:
Alright, so the word has been out on this already, and I’ve been posting the Brick City Bios as quickly as Rockertycoon can churn them out, but it is now official. The full lineup and set times have been announced for the inaugural Brick City Sound Riot, featuring all five Killing Horse Records bands – Secret Country, Invisible Lines, Ben Franklin, ¡No Pasaran!, and Cicada Radio!
A few words about ¡No Pasaran!’s latest, Porter In The Making from Pops Gustav over at 50 Words or Less:
¡No Pararan!, PORTER IN THE MAKING ep (Killing Horse Records)
I’ve always been impressed by this Jersey trio’s highly intelligent art rock, but often felt like I didn’t get it. Until now. This new ep is a revelatory, perfect mesh of brain and brawn, a refreshing slap of righteous post-punk directly to the head, and the gut as well.
UPDATE: Tickets are available for sale on Ticketfly
