Touring in support of their most recent release, an EP titled Pioneer of Nothing, You Blew It! (above) brought Tiny Moving Parts, Sorority Noise and Rozwell Kid to The Barbary on Thursday night.

Rozwell Kid kicked off the sold-out show with a set featuring tracks from 2014’s Too Shabby and their signature theatrical stage antics. The band recently announced that their 2013 LP, Unmacho, will be released on vinyl through Broken World Media for the first time.

Sorority Noise, who signed to Topshelf Records at the end of January, hit the stage and got the crowd moving quickly. The group joined the tour for a short run of East Coast dates starting Thursday night.

“We’re skipping school for this,” said Cameron Boucher, guitarist and vocalist of Sorority Noise.

Boucher and his bandmates drew heavily from 2014’s Forgettable, but also shared new songs from their upcoming LP. The new tracks hinted at a change from the sound found on Forgettable.

Tiny Moving Parts matched the energy of Rozwell Kid and Sorority Noise and treated the energized crowd to cuts from 2014’s Pleasant Living and 2013’s This Couch is Long & Full of Friendship. The band even included a track off of its split with Old Gray, Cameron Boucher’s other band. The set was capped by a performance of “Dakota” as frontman Dylan Mattheisen left the stage to crowd surf, sing, and play guitar without missing a beat.

Judging by the reaction of the crowd as the band took the sage, You Blew It! needed no introduction, but frontman Tanner Jones gave one anyway, noting the stark contrast in weather between the band’s home state of Florida and here, in Philadelphia.

The band highlighted tracks from 2014’s Keep Doing What You’re Doing and 2012’s Grow Up, Dude, as well as new tracks from Pioneer of Nothing.

Although the band is accustomed to warmer weather, Jones said Philadelphia is like a second home to the group and expressed his thanks to those who braved the cold to come to the show.
