Tonight’s Concert Picks: Pissed Jeans/Hot Snakes at Underground Arts, Pet Milk at Kung Fu Necktie, DIIV and Wild Nothing at Union Transfer

By

Allentown-bred, Philly-based thrash punks Pissed Jeans open for Hot Snakes tonight at Underground Arts. Known for their raw adolescent Sub Pop Records sound, Pissed Jeans released their third album, King of Jeans, in 2009, surprising fans with a more mature direction. Doors open at 7:30. Tickets to the 21+ show start at $18, more information can be found here. Below, watch their video for “False Jessi Part II.”

Pet Milk are opening for The Native Cats at Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The 21+ show starts at 9 p.m., admission is $10 and more information can be found here. The local pop-rock group performed songs from their 2011 EP Philadelphia Punk Life, and a few extras, for a Key Studio Session Key Studio Session in June. Below, download a performance from that session, “The Dream Has Turned.”

Indie pop bands DIIV and Wild Nothing are playing tonight at Union Transfer as they continue their 2012 tour. DIIV, who performed at North Star Bar in April, released their debut album Oshin in June to great reception from critics; Pitchfork claimed “How Long Have You Known?” as one of their Best New Tracks. Wild Nothing frontman Jack Tatum says Nocturne, the band’s sophomore album which dropped in August, was crafted more for fans than 2010′s Gemini.  The all ages show starts at 8 p.m.; more details can be found here.
