    Episode 230: Gig Life Balance and Education: A Conversation with Kelsey and Jacinda of Kelsey Cork and the Swigs

    Episode 230: Gig Life Balance and Education: A Conversation with Kelsey and Jacinda of Kelsey Cork and the Swigs

    I spoke with Kelsey Cork and Jacinda of Philly band Kelsey Cork and the Swigs.  As a Philly act, Kelsey Cork, Jacinda Arellano, and Nolee Morris harness their chemistry off-stage to kick ass onstage, acquiring an undeniable reputation for an energetic show you can’t help but dance to. They celebrate discarding pretentious cynicism to rejoice in surviving as a poor and rowdy twenty-something in the city of Philadelphia. The Swigs use Philly as inspiration for their music and their attitude, letting litter and grime seep into their catchy hooks about having a good time living below the poverty line; they make you wonder why you ever cared about the façade of elitism. The band just released a new EP called Weird Bones released by goodhowareyou records and take some time to talk to me about their day to day with being a rock band.  Tune in on this episode of Dreams Not Memes.

    Featured Song : ECRNR (East Coast Rock and Roll)
