Showin' Tell's CD Release Party is history in the making. The event will be held at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia on September 17th. Showin' Tell is the only band to ever hold a CD release party at ESP and the first band to

play there since it was a working prison.

Eastern State Penitentiary operated for 142 years and once held such infamous inmates as Al Capone and bank robber Willie Sutton. The Penitentiary closed in 1971 and in 1994 it opened its doors to the public for tours of the old prison. Eastern State is now a National Historic Landmark. The prison's next important date in the history is Showin’ Tell’s CD Release Party for their album Tuesday Afternoon.

Tuesday Afternoon delivers a potent brew of original tunes influenced by a range of artists including Kiss, Janis Joplin, and Lenny Kravitz. Blending heavy drumming, melodic vocals and driving riffs, it is an ambitious first effort from an up-and-coming band. One spin of Tuesday Afternoon will leave listeners with no doubt as to why producer Jason Rubal calls Showin’ Tell “The Next Generation of Rock.”

Showin’ Tell recorded the album with producer Jason Rubal at Seventh Wave Studio, Cue Studio, and at Moontree, the personal studio of Chad Taylor (guitarist of Live).

Playing out several times monthly, Showin’ Tell is a staple in the Philadelphia original music scene. They have several high profile performances on their resume as well, having played the Mazda Rev It Up Tour at the Philadelphia Racetrack, as well as playing at Lincoln Financial Field, for the Temple University Homecoming game. Locally, Showin’ Tell host the weekly Wednesday Original Nite Party at The Five Spot in Philadelphia, which is sponsored by Jagermeister. The tracks “Medicine” and “Better Off” from Tuesday Afternoon are also featured on Jagermusic.com. Showin' Tell is proud to be one of the few female fronted bands sponsored by Jagermeister

With the long awaited release of Tuesday Afternoon, Showin’ Tell steps up to hit one out of the park.
