Don’t miss out on an entire concert of gorgeous, effervescent jams and the chance to make out with your latest crush with a soundtrack Zach Braff would be jealous of.

This week is a great week to see live music in Philly! Start your week off right and see Courtney Barnett at Union Transfer on Monday, Bombay Bicycle Club at Union Transfer on Tuesday, and The Kills rock The Troc on Wednesday!!!
If you haven’t had the chance to see Courtney Barnett live yet, this Monday is going to be a wild ride for you. The songstress has been touring non-stop after releasing her A Sea of Split Peas EP and rightfully so- her and her band deliver live. Between her storytelling lyrics, explosive guitar playing, and the radiating energy exchange between her and her bandmates, your Monday night will come alive. Her show will give you the energy to get through your Monday and leave you inspired to see the other incredible shows happening this week. Tickets are only $20 and you can get yours now here or at the box office. The show starts at 8PM so make sure you get there on time to see San Fermin supporting. I recently caught up with Courtney Barnett about this US tour, her label Milk! Records, and new music you should listen to! Read it on blahblahblahscience here.
I’ve loved Bombay Bicycle Club for some time now and have actually lost track of how many times I have seen them live. But one thing is always certain, I will never miss one of their shows in my town…ever. These boys make such incredible music and are constantly stepping up their live shows. The band is currently touring their new album So Long, See You Tomorrow which has yet to leave my record player this year. Bombay Bicycle will play the perfect mixture of your favorite new tracks along with your favorites from their other brilliant albums. The band will have the whole room moving, smiling and forgetting that it’s only Tuesday, so make sure you are there. The show starts at 8PM with Milo Greene and Luxley supporting. Tickets are $25 and you can get them now here or at the door. Until then, read my interview from the last time they were in town on The Waster here!
What better to get you through your mid-week blues than some badass rock’n’roll? The Trocadero has you covered as The Kills are scheduled to blow your eardrums and your mind with their addictive and seductive songs live. The energy transferred between the duo live is so electric and raw you will find yourself moving, sweating and mesmerized. The show starts at 7:30pm with Moon Duo and Nuns opening, you can get your tickets now here!
NYC rockers Drowners are also in town Wednesday to play Boot & Saddle on their Dr. Martens Stand For Something tour. The band will also be stopping at the Dr. Martens store on Walnut St. for a meet and greet with their fans at 6pm. You can get tickets for their show after here!
If you’ve read this blog before you know that I’m completely obsessed with everything Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs…the man is my everything and I don’t care who knows it. After touring the world djing some incredible parties (including The Dolphin in Philly), TEED is back with a new jam and record label Nice Age.
“Feels Like” is the newest single from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and the label, and features the gorgeous vocals of Anna Lunoe. This is the perfect jam to start off your Friday and your weekend, and is certain to give you a dance workout of epic proportions as TEED is known to do. I could not be more excited for Orlando in this new venture. I can’t even comprehend how epic future releases on Nice Age will be. That man has taste when it comes to music and I am so stoked he is going to deliver us these hand-picked new jams on the silver platter that is his new label.
“Feels Like” ft. Anna Lunoe is out now! Get your copy now here.
Do I need to marry into this family to join the band? If so, I’m okay with that. Lucy and Thom Southern are the brother-sister duo that make this incredible Belfast-born, Liverpool-based bluesy, rock’n’roll powerhouse.
Southern released another electric single “Where I Want To Be” due out August 18th! The track has the brother-sister vocal harmonies you know and love with seductive, body-moving instrumentals, and lyrics to sing at the top of your lungs. Southern have stayed true to releasing singles to soundtrack your summer and “Where I Want To Be” is a great addition. To buy Southern’s self-titled EP click here. Follow Southern on Facebook, Twitter and Songkick for tour dates.
Interpol have been all the rage in my heart for years now. I recently became fixated on listening to their albums on repeat, so they could not have picked a better time to release new music into my life. “All The Rage Back Home” picks up right where Interpol left off, by delivering us mesmerizing instrumentals, infectious lyrics, and sing-a-long chorus’ that stay in your head for days. “All The Rage Back Home” is a strong first single from what should be an epic new album from the band. Interpol’s new album El Pintor is available now for pre-order here!
Interpol have announced a North American and European tour. Sadly, Philadelphia’s show at Union Transfer has sold out so hopefully you got your tickets! If not, Interpol just announced additional dates for NYC, London, and Dublin. For more information about when Interpol is coming to your town and to get your tickets click here.
I am loving this super smooth jam from London’s Memory Maze.
“Like A Mirage” has soft, seductive vocals and bass with instrumentals that will keep your hips moving and heart breaking. Memory Maze are due to release an album later this year!
You can keep track of when Memory Maze will tour in a city near you by following them here.
I’m going to come right out and say it. I love Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Their new album, Only Run, reminds us of their unique sound that only gets better with age.
Let’s face it, the guys are indie rock legends and they are playing at Johnny Brenda’s, one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful and intimate clubs, TONIGHT. How lucky are we?! Of course the show is sold out, and I am anticipating dancing and getting sweaty on this magical summer night with all of you. The show starts at 9:30PM with Stagnant Pools opening, so don’t be late. Get there, pay attention, and stand post where you want to be for your glorious reunion with one of your favorite bands.
