Philadelphia-based rock band Low Cut Connie are known by many for their high-intensity shows where the band members don't hold anything back when they perform.

"You have to switch your mentality from it being the thing that you have to do to the thing that you need to do," Adam Weiner, the band's frontman, told The Current's Mary Lucia. "And so the show is my release, it is my healing. It's my way of connecting with people, it's my way of lifting other people up and letting myself be lifted as well. So no matter what's going on in my life, I look forward to it."

Over the years, the band havengained a number of high-profile fans, with even Barack Obama adding the band's music to one of his summer playlists. "That was nuts," recalled Weiner. "The guy at the New York Times tweeted, 'I can't understand we live in a world where the President of the United States listens to Low Cut Connie.'"

Low Cut Connie released their latest album, Dirty Pictures (Part 2), this past spring and are currently on tour around the country.
