The Scenic

If you've got a hankering for some independent pop music, the Talent Farm has you covered this Friday. Philadelphia natives the Scenic, who recently signed to Victory Records, are currently touring the U.S. promoting their latest album, Find Yourself Here. It's as straightforward as a pop record can get, loaded with catchy hooks and choruses and sugary-sweet lyrics proclaiming just how wonderful life is. It would be too much to take if the songs weren't such well-crafted singalongs, but the Scenic manages to keep the gag reflexes at bay with tight guitar work and earnest lyrics. Joining them is the Sophomore Attempt, an edgier but no less poppy outfit from Jacksonville. If you're feeling too old or embarrassed to hang out with the young folks at the Talent Farm, you can stream the show from your computer at home by visiting
