TJ KongPhiladelphia’s TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb have been described as a rare blend of Whiskey Blues, Mournful Balladry, Bootstomp Folk, Punk and Gypsy Rock similar in sound almost to a contemporary-ancient brand of Americana similar to The Band or, at its crankiest extreme, Captain Beefheart with a dirty Mersey Beat that’d shame the Animals. Having opened for top acts such as Here We Go Magic and the White Rabbits, and having played festivals such as POP Montreal, SXSW, and the CMJ Music Marathon, this “post-apocalyptic fall-out shelter house band” (Philadelphia Weekly) is gearing up to tear down BDP!
