Check out the exclusive premiere of a performance by the politically-minded indie band Little Comets at the intimate Sofar venue in Philadelphia, with the song "The Blur, The Line and The Thickest of Onions".
 

Sofar Sounds describes itself as “the world’s largest music discovery community; curating secret, intimate gigs in unique spaces all around the world. Bringing the magic back to live music.” PopMatters recently premiered a performance at Sofar’s London venue; this week, we present a song performed by the indie group Little Comets filmed at Sofar’s Philadelphia location.
  
Little Comets give an impassioned performance at the intimate venue, playing the politically charged “The Blur, The Line and The Thickest of Onions”. The song tackles the continual problem of systemic misogyny in modern society, addressing the way in which power structures limit the freedom of women.

 

We all know how critical it is to keep independent voices alive and strong on the Internet. Your donation will help PopMatters stay viable through these changing and challenging times.
