Weathervane hosts intimate studio concerts at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia that feature past and future Shaking Through artists and other local musicians.
These shows are an opportunity for us to highlight artists we think have an important message to share through their music, and to get people together in the same room who think supporting, engaging with, and creating music is an invaluable part of our culture.
Event Access Members get admission to both of our Private Studio Concerts each year.

What started as the solo project of Ellen Tiberio-Shultz in 2009, Ellen Siberian Tiger has taken on many forms since Tiberio-Shultz moved to Boston in 2011; from the folky duos featured on the Skeleton EP and Red Blooded Woman EP to the orchestrated 7 piece band recorded on the full length album entitled I Can't Help It, Ellen Siberian Tiger now embodies a unique and powerful indie rock band.
After Tiberio-Shultz relocated to Philadelphia in 2016, they recorded their newest single, “When Men Explain Things To Me,” with the bands current line up: Collin Dennen on bass and Adam Shumski on drums. This single earned them the title of "furiously feminist" by The Grey Estates. They've been growing steadily as a 3 piece, playing alongside Philly bands such as Vita and the Wolf and Son Step. Their WXPN Key Session featured a video of their song "Cinderblock Cindy" and was listed as the #4 on The Key’s list of top ten best Key Sessions of 2017, right behind Philadelphia favorite and up-and-coming artist Palm. Ellen Siberian Tiger’s music, with a mix of indie rock, orchestral and punk influences, creates space for healthy catharsis and healing, a space that is important and needed.
Julia Rainer has been making original music in Philadelphia since 2004. As a kid, her dad took her to see Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers—and her education progressed from there. Influenced by artists like Hank Williams (the original), Neil Young, Sam Cooke, Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Nico, Television, Cat Power, and Aimee Mann, Rainer writes folk songs—that sometimes creep into other genres—about love, loss, depression, addiction, salvation, and the common difficulties of humanity. Her vocals, which have been described as powerful, sultry, smoky, and aching, along with her bare-bones melodic guitar playing are an honest depiction of her personal experience, that any feeling person can surely relate to.
