Conversations with artists of all kinds, intimate musical performances, in-depth discussions on performing, touring, recording, and just generally being. Based in Philadelphia, new episode every two weeks, with your host Dan Drago.
One of the bands Dan heard a lot about this summer was Riverby. He finally got a chance to talk with Sophie Greenberg, front-person and songwriter of the band. The two talk about how the band came together, getting tricked into living in Manayunk (where they still live), their new video that features smashed cake and a lot of fake blood, and Sophie's love of antagonizing her bandmate, Tyler (who has nothing but nice things to say about anyone).
Fall 2020 Music Playlist #2
Dan got so much great music for last week's episode, he decided to do a second Fall 2020 Music Playlist. Featuring Ellen Siberian tiger, Ali Awan, Caiola, Riverby and more. Go to 25oclockpod.com for a clickable playlist and support the artists.
175. Fall 2020 Music Playlist
Welcome to fall! Dan highlights 11 tracks from Philly and Philly-related artists on the show, including Ross Bellenoit, King Pine, Dear Forbidden, La Palma, Wicket, and more.
Nearly four years in the making, Tyler and Dan finally get to talk. Tyler fronts The Tisburys, plays in Riverby, and writes for Philly music outlets like The Key and the Philadelphia Globe. Tyler and Dan talk about how The Tisburys came together, "purposeful songwriting", their forthcoming LP 'Sun Goes Down' and how it changed over the course of the pandemic, and the Manayunk music community.
Greg Seltzer (Philly Music Fest)
Dan talks to Greg Seltzer, founder and organizer of the Philly Music Fest, now in it's 4th year. 2020 obviously dealt the fest some blows, but they've pivoted to offer a fully digital fest, and Greg talks about how that got put together, the slow-grow of the fest over the years, his ideas on how bands can operate better business-wise as live music reemerges, and he and Dan celebrate their favorite parts of the Philly music community.
Paul Marchesani #2
Paul makes electronic music under man, many monikers, and they all live together as the Forest Kids Collective. Dan talks with Paul (who was originally on back in 2017 on #88) about a few of his newer releases, including a solo piano album and two slushwave EPs (Dan did not know what slushwave was, and needed guidance). The two discuss what they've been doing to occupy themselves, their various production approaches, and reminisce on those moments in college when someone drops some major knowledge on you.
Customer ReviewsSee All
The opening theme, the interviews, and the host Dan Drago, make this podcast Great! Even not being from Philadelphia, Dan does a fantastic job creating an interest in the music scene, and art world, around the Philadelphia area. It has helped me find some great local music acts to listen to. In the sad continental desert that the commercial music scene has become, Dan marks the small pockets of oasis that is being born in the Philli area. Check it out, and find some new things you might otherwise not find without the Drago compass that is, 25 O’clock.
Excellent peak into the Philly music scene. Great interviewer, great guests, great pod.
25 O'Clock is right on time...
25 O'Clock is a great primer/window into the world of local (Philly) indie music. Great sounds, great conversation (Dan is an excellent interviewer) - highly recommended!
