This past Thursday was the first of many shows at Hard Rock Philly put on by yours truly, That Mag. With a diverse lineup, food and drinks galore, and surprise appearances by some big names, it was not a show to miss.
Seventeen year old suburban-Philly local, Ashley Leone, got the show started with a soulful set. She started off with some original songs, backed by her band the Love, Love, Love’s. The R&B infused pop songs got the crowd interested, and she then got them involved by playing some covers, first Lady GaGa and then Kid Cudi.
Next, South Jersey’s No Risk pumped everyone up. “If we suck, the Eagles are playing on the TV by the bar!” they started off by saying, followed by loud, heavy, fun music. There was no need to watch the Eagles, because No Risk was captivating, especially with the playing of a new song that they worked out well on stage.
Rich Quick was up next, and the crowd had grown and moved up closer with anticipation. Stress the White Boy and Chuck Treece took the stage first, ready to DJ and drum for the set. Rich Quick took the stage with a whirlwind of energy and excitement. He played his full EP Sad Songz, with guest appearances from ASK?, Milton, and local Philadelphia legend Reef the Lost Cauze. After his set, Rich Quick was called back onstage for an encore, leaving the crowd wanting even more. He stuck around after the show, talking to fans and taking photos.
This month’s Third Thursday event with ThatMag was epic, and there is much more where that came from, so keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground!
