Philly Song of the Week: “Rio” by Low Cut Connie

Low Cut Connie is a veteran of the Philly music scene, holding a loaded discography dating back to 2011 with their debut album, Get out the Lotion. The Philadelphia-based group is known for their high-energy live shows led by their pianist, and theatrical frontman Adam Weiner. In 2015, the group was even featured in President Barack Obama’s Summer Playlist.

“Rio” is the perfect song to listen to when you’re driving down the highway with the windows down in the middle of July. With a quick beat, the guitar clanging, and lyrics that scream debauchery, “Rio” is fun, contagious, and a great gateway to get into the band’s other tracks.
