ABOUT THE BAND
Like a band of misfits heeding the clarion call of Philadelphia's most revered musical ghosts, PJ Brown and Her Resistance assembled for the first time (feat. members of WPJO and the legendary Martha Graham Cracker) for a sold out show at World Café Live! What started as a full steam homage to Miss Sharon Jones took a left turn when the wheels fell off and the ship lifted high above Love Park , clipping the hat off that bird-dropping covered statue of William Penn and straight into the sun.
PJ Brown and Her Resistance continues its mission to spread love and music - To celebrate lost souls, excited shapeshifters, perennial drifters, aspiring troublemakers. and unapologetic agents of change.
It's troubled soul music. It's taped together rock and roll. It's basement party funk. It's dark as night and light as day and all of it is for you!

NICK CAVE & BAD SEED TEEVEE
During the Pandemic, Nick Cave's Bad Seed Teevee YouTube channel hosted a 24hour marathon featuring selected covers of his songs. In response to the selections, Cave wrote: "There have been a lot of cover versions of my songs over the years, but rarely have I heard them played with such honesty, understanding, creativity, conviction and pure heart. This stuff is the real deal and exactly what music should be about." Specifically about PJBHR's cover, he added "someone is finally doing something cool with Red Right Hand."
