Glittery pop outfit Sun Airway play Johnny Brenda’s tonight with Historics and Cruiser.  On last year’s expansive sophomore release Soft Fall, Sun Airway washed their synths and vocals in the waters of some faraway cascade and dried them in the echo-y halls of a sky-high cathedral, creating an all-together other-worldly aura around the project.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.  Below, watch the video for “Close” and dig deeper into Soft Fall with The Key’s Unlocked series here.

Psych-thrashers Ruby the Hatchet headline tonight at MilkBoy Philly with Attic Dancers. Ruby the Hatchet features the heavy rock ‘n’ roll vocals of Asbury Park native Jillian Taylor surrounded by fuzzy riffs and clashing percussion, most recently captured on 2012’s OUROBOROS.  Attic Dancers are a relatively new local trio who released the ear-catching Carrier LP in April of 2012, mixing alt-rock foundations with psych/shoegaze-y layers.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here; below, watch Ruby the Hatchet’s video for “Black Tongue.”

Philly alt-folk five-piece Brethren headlines The Grape Room in Manayunk tonight. The band started out in 2010 making music very much informed by The Avett Brothers, but in the past two years have evolved in more of a refined pop / rock direction. Watch a video of the band recording the new song “Gone A Little Wrong” below, get more information on the show here.
