Tonight’s Concert Picks: Silencio at World Cafe Live, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo at Union Transfer, Brandi Carlile at the Merriam and Grandchildren at PhilaMOCA


The haunting, surrealist movies by filmmaker David Lynch always have the perfect moody musical accompaniment – and Pittsburgh ensemble Silencio picks up on that big time. The group plays World Cafe Live tonight, performing a selection of musical moments from Erasherhead to Mullholland Drive, from which the group borrowed its name. The giant red curtain at the back up the upstairs stage will probably make more than a few audience members think of Twin Peaks. Tickets to the show are $15 and available here; below, watch Silencio perform Eraserhead‘s “In Heaven.”

XPN Welcomes singer-songwriter Aimee Mann to Union Transfer tonight. She’s on tour in support of her latest release, Charmer, which came out last month. Joining her will be Ted Leo, performing a solo set. Tickets and information on the all-ages show are available here. Below, watch the video for “Charmer.”

XPN Welcomes Brandi Carlile to the Merriam Theater tonight with her new record, Bear Creek, in tow. Tickets and information on the show can be found here; below, watch a solo piano performance of “That Wasn’t Me” at House of Blues in Anaheim last year.

Philly experimental pop band Grandchildren plays PhilaMOCA tonight for The Deli‘s Halloweeniversary Bash. The all-ages show begins at 8, admission is a $10 donation. The band’s next full-length is due out next year, so expect to be treated with plenty of new material, such as this song, “Sunrise,” performed in Orlando, Florida earlier this year.
