LOW CUT CONNIE
Within seconds of arriving at Old Swedes' Church, the collective hum of car engines and faraway voices that formed the familiar, unbroken dialogue of a city street had been replaced with peace, quiet and the black and white keys of a Baldwin piano. Pouring out of the open windows and settling amongst the stone, grass and brick of the historic South Philly churchyard, Adam Weiner’s vocals cut through the sweltering summer air until his own songs had blended in with those of the birds in the trees. Performing “Shake It Little Tina” from Low Cut Connie’s 2015 release Hi Honey and “Dirty Water” off their latest record, 2017’s Dirty Pictures, Pt. 1, the Philadelphia based band’s frontman pounded out notes, hitting his boots to the floor with enough force to occasionally shake the tripods of the very cameras that filmed him.
