Weekend Music Picks: Music To Make You Feel All Warm And Fuzzy.

February 8, 2013

Snow? Really? Don’t let that stop you from going out tonight or anytime this weekend. It will likely keep the chumps out, which means the city will belong to the strong. So go out, play in the snow, follow the trail to the music and enjoy the world while the chumps cuddle up with their Netflix.

FRIDAY

Former Belle (Record Release Show) with Commonwealth Choir, Geology and Market East at Milkboy

Former Belle frontman Bruno Catrambone’s voice wavers, revealing pain and angst, while beautiful, soothing music plays behind him. It is mesmerizing, this combination of suffering and soul-searching. This is a great local lineup, including Geology, which is the solo project of Greg Jehanian from MeWithoutYou.

Philly Bloco at The Blockley

Nothing will make you warmer and happier tonight than seeing Philly’s own Brazilian/Samba troupe. You cannot resist dancing at their shows.

ShortyBoyBoyTOCsmallSATURDAY

Shorty Boy Boy, The Quelle Source and Seamus Browning at Milkboy

Another great all-Philly lineup featuring our pal, Shorty Boy Boy. His quirky music is full of sarcasm, irony and just plain fun stuff.

Ape School with Ramona Falls and The Interest Group at Johnny Brenda’s

Michael Johnson’s Ape School project has grown into a phenomena. Plus Portland’s Ramona Falls? The hipster quotient at the show will almost be as overwhelming as the music.

Vacationer with Robert Delong and Cruiser at Underground Arts

This show will be super chill, with summer sounds and the Sailor Jerry flowing. And the event is actually called NUDE BEACH. That should tell you something. Plus, we’re giving away free tickets!

SUNDAY

Nobody Yet, Ex Friends, Welter, Fever Charm and The Adults at The Fire

This is what the Ex Friends wrote on their facebook wall about the show: “You should go to this please. First of all, shows on Sunday night are extra fun because it feels like cheating a little extra fun out of the week. Second, it’s a bunch of awesome bands, third, it’s at the Fire, which is basically the seitan of Philly punk venues: we complain about it and take it for granted, but if it went away we’d be screwed.”

MONDAY

Toro Y Moi at Union Transfer

Plan ahead! Chazwick Bradley Bundick’s chillwave project, Toro Y Moi, finds that perfect spot between indie, electro, R&B, hip hop and everything else. His new album dropped a few weeks ago and it is smoooooth.
