Born and bred in the basements of Philadelphia, up and coming Argonautic will be throwing down the jams in celebration of their CD release party this Friday at the Grape Room in Manayunk.

Argonautic is a four-piece jam/rock band comprised of lead vocalist and bassist Ben Abbott, guitarists Thom Horn and John Swift, and drummer Matt Karver. Formerly known as Aquatic Ape Theory, the band has gone through somelineup changes, with the final product being a solidification of sound and change in name. With experience in the local bar and small venue circuit, I recommend catching them sooner rather than later because they’re definitely gaining steam. Their tunes will get you dancin’ around the room one second and rocking out the next. I’m still in disbelief that I just found out about them this month.

This weekend they will be celebrating the release of their self-titled EP with support from fellow local acts The Jawn, Flotel, and DJ ONESON. Come out and support local music!


Their EP is available to listen via their Bandcamp.
