February 18, 2014

DerrickKromWho said there was ever anything wrong with a little girl power? Our great city of Philadelphia will be playing host to a number of talented female vocalists and singer-songwriters this upcoming weekend. From bluesy soul singing trio No Good Sister to the relentless and rocking outfit Lantern, some of the city’s most talented women will be performing throughout the weekend. Ladies, this one is for you. – Derrick Krom

FRIDAY

Katie Frank and The Pheromones, The Lawsuits and Kevin Killen at MilkBoy

We Are The In Crowd, William Beckett, Set It Off, State Champs and Candy Hearts at First Unitarian Church

We Are The In Crowd—fronted by vocalist Taylor Jardine—will kick-off the weekend by headlining a packed lineup at First Unitarian Church.

SATURDAY

Ali Wadsworth, Hezekiah Jones and Foxhound Play 90’s Albums at Boot & Saddle

No Good Sister, The Donuts and Louis Gribaudo at Ortlieb’s Lounge

A local female trio of self-proclaimed “vocal sass,” No Good Sister (made up of Meaghan Kyle, Jess McDowell and Maren Coleman Sharrow) blend old school rock ‘n’ roll, blues and honky tonk to create their own unique sound. Backed by a white-hot five-piece band, the ladies of No Good Sister will fill your night with tunes both old and new.

SUNDAY

DIIV, Drone Ranger and Lantern at Boot & Saddle

Acclaimed Brooklyn indie rockers DIIV will pay Philly a visit this Sunday night for a special $3 show. Joining DIIV are the psychedelic and trance-inducing outfit Drone Ranger and the powerfully fuzzed-out Philadelphia rock ‘n’ rollers Lantern, centered around the duo of Zachary Devereux Fairbrother and Emily Robb.

Lily Kershaw at Ortlieb’s Lounge

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Lily Kershaw will help bring your weekend to a close with melodic and thoughtful material from her debut album Midnight In The Garden. While exploring a range of emotions through her personal folk-centered songs, Kershaw explores the dark in the light while continually remaining true to herself.
