Weekend Music Picks: Quit Bitching About How Cold It Is. Go Find A Party.

January 24, 2013

SluteverBed01It’s going to be crazy cold this weekend so you should totally pack yourself into a steamy, crowded music venue and dance your ass off. It’s really the only sane option. Here are a few places you can do such a thing. 

FRIDAY

Slutever, Cold Fronts, Young Rapids and Eastern Midwestern at Sprinkle Kingdom

Sassy Slutever and danceable punk Cold Fronts in a West Philly basement? Sounds like a party.

SATURDAY

The A’s Reunion show at Underground Arts

These guys were one of Philly’s great bands in the 80s, when there were a lot of great rock bands here.

Nightlands (Record Release Show) at Kung Fu Necktie

The War on Drugs’ bassist, Dave Hartley, has a side project, Nightlands, that is generating massive buzz and for good reason. Jon Barthmus from Sun Airway and Scott Churchman from Ape School will also perform.

Catnaps, Roof Doctor and Traffic Nightmare at Kung Fu Necktie

This a big show full of lots of young Philly talent.

Mic Stew and Max Swan at Bourbon Blue

Mic Stew is a crazy talented freestyle rapper. Max Swan is a talented multi-instrumentalist who plays a mean jazz saxophone. This should be an interesting collaboration. Plus, Mic Stew has a full lineup of Philly rappers set to perform.

Tegan and Sara, Walk The Moon, twenty | one | pilots and June Divided at The Piazza (plus DJ sets from Matt and Kim)

Regardless of the weather, this will likely be packed. The Canadian twins Tegan and Sara’s new album drops next week. Hopefully they’ll play some of the new stuff at The Piazza. Dress warm for this outdoor show.

The Adults, Casket, Wise Guys, Get Railed and Binfold at Beaumont Warehouse

The Adults are among our favorite Philly punk bands. And that says a lot. Catch them at this West Philly show before they dash off to New Zealand for a few weeks.

SUNDAY

The xx at The Electric Factory

These indie-pop Brits build every song up to a crescendo that never actually occurs, which could be annoying. But it just seems to make everyone want more.

Mean Streets, Far From Finished and Automotive High School at The Fire
Interesting trio of bands set to perform – pure punk kids from Boston, indie rock Brooklyn band and Mean Streets, a power pop/punk band from Philly. FYI – Automotive High School has that fresh, poppy sound that will likely propel them to much bigger things. This could be an opportunity to party with them.
