Tonight’s Concert Picks: Divine Fits at Union Transfer, Franz Nicolay and Erik Petersen of Mischief Brew at First Unitarian, King Tuff and Poor Moon at Johnny Brenda’s

By

Divine Fits are playing tonight at Union Transfer in support of their debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, which was released in August. An indie supergroup of sorts, Divine FIts is spearheaded by Spoon‘s Britt Daniel, New Bomb Turks’ Sam Brow, and Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs. Tickets for the all-ages show are available here. Below, check out the video for “Would That Not Be Nice.”

The multi-talented Franz Nicolay will be playing with Erik Petersen of Mischief Brew at First Unitarian Church tonight. Even though Nicolay’s sophomore album, Do The Struggle, just came out in August, the singer announced plans to release a 7″ split with English singer/songwriter Frank Turner entitled Double Exposure. Punk-folk frontman Petersen cites Mischief Brew’s 2005 album Smash the Windows as the beginning of his collaboration with Nicolay’s band Guignol, which led to the 2009 release of their collaboration Fight Dirty. Their show tonight starts at 8; ticket information is available here. Check out Nicolay’s new video for “Did Your Broken Heart Make You Who Are?” from Do The Struggle. 

Vibraphone master Kyle Thomas, who goes by the stage moniker King Tuff, will be peforming with Poor Moon tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. King Tuff’s eponymous sophomore album, which came out last May, is all glorified garage rock with tracks like “Bad Thing” and “Alone’n'Stoned.” Poor Moon, the independent project of Fleet Foxes members Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott with brothers Ian and Peter Murray, released their self-titled debut album in August. The 21+ show tonight starts at 9; further details can be found here. Check out the video for “Bad Thing” from King Tuff below.
