MAD Music at the Mandell
March 6, 2010
MAD Dragon Records and MadKo Concerts rocked the Mandell Theater on March 6th at 7 PM when they presented headliner Good Old War in concert with special guests Liam & Me, and MAD Dragon recording artists Matt Duke, The Swimmers and Andrew Lipke. As always, the concert was organized and promoted by students in the Music Industry program.
Headliner Good Old War is a Pennsylvania trio that plays country and folk music creating an emotional and lyrical experience devoid of musical gimmicks. Representing the pop/rock genre will be Philly-based rock band Liam & Me, a band that favors songs with great hooks. Singer/songwriter Matt Duke is known for acoustic melodies and his gentle voice. Matt’s albums are released by MAD Dragon’s partner RykoDisc, a subsidiary of Warner Bros Music. Electro-pop band The Swimmers is MAD Dragon Records’ most recent release and their album, People Are Soft, received terrific critical acclaim. Rounding out the bill was the wonderful Andrew Lipke and his distinct brand of guitar-driven acoustic rock.
