Brooklyn rockabilly group The Sweetback Sisters are performing tonight at the PSALM Salon. The group’s 2011 album Looking For A Fight has a classic throwback sound to country legends like Carl Perkins with retro harmonies and lively melodies. Tickets for their all-ages show tonight can be found here. Below, watch the video for their single “Be Back Home Tonight.”

XPN Welcomes Ani Di Franco to the Keswick Theatre tonight. The feminist singer/songwriter is currently on tour supporting her seventeenth studio album, Which Side Are You On?, which was released earlier this year in January. Tickets for tonight’s 7:30 show can be found here.  Below, check out a soulful a cappella version of “Which Side Are You On?” recorded for the Occupy This Album compilation.

New Jersey alt-rock band Aspiga will be playing at The Balcony at The Trocadero tonight.

 Lisa Marie Presley will be playing at the Chameleon Club tonight supporting the May release of Storm and Grace, her first album in seven years.
