P.S. Eliot

P.S. Eliot Wrap Up Reunion Tour at PhilaMOCA Sept. 19 & 20

Katie and Allison Crutchfield received their inaugural taste of musical success in Birmingham, AL with the first band that they formed in high school called The Ackleys; however, after its members went off to different colleges, the group eventually disbanded, leading the twin sisters to their next musical endeavor, P.S. Eliot. The feminist pop-punk quartet, which also included Will Granger and Katherine Simonetti, prolifically wrote and recorded music before calling it quits in 2011. Of course, you most likely already know that Katie Crutchfield has gone to gain fame recording under the moniker Waxahatchee, and Allison has too with her band Swearin’. Earlier this year, P.S. Eliot announced that they would be reuniting to tour and release a 50-track compilation album, 2007-2011, via Don Giovanni Records, which features remasters of 2009’s Introverted Romance In Our Troubled Minds and 2011’s Sadie, as well as their 2010 Living In Squalor EP, demos, and home recordings. Well, they have been on tour for the past week or so in support of their latest release, and will be wrapping it up with an exciting two-night run of sold-out shows at PhilaMOCA, starting this evening with labelmate Moor Mother and Boston’s Fleabite and concluding the following evening with Philly friends Radiator Hospital and Pouty. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12 (Sold Out), All Ages - Alexis V.
