Tonight’s Concert Picks: Hospitality at Johnny Brenda’s, Heavy Medical at The First Unitarian Church, Vintage Kicks at Kung Fu Necktie


Brooklyn’s Hospitality perform at Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  Led by Amber Papini, Hospitality are pure indie fun with math-rock subtleties.  Their head-bop-worthy major label debut came out on Merge Records at the start of 2012 and received praise from notable resources ranging from Pitchfork to The Deli NYC. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Conversations With Enemies and Tinmouth can be found here; below, watch Hospitality’s video for “Friends of Friends.”

Local rockers Heavy Medical play tonight at The First Unitarian Church.  In a classic case of “which came first?” it’s easy to speculate on whether the relentless thrashing of the duo’s sound was inspired by the band name or if it was the other way around.  Regardless, Heavy Medical will bring the heavy vibes of their pair of releases to the Church tonight alongside Ghostlimb, Plague Dogs and Xanax.  Tickets and information can be found here.  Below, watch Heavy Medical perform “Do Over” from Modern Drill live.

Philly-area outfit Vintage Kicks will be at Kung Fu Necktie tonight, opening up for Glitter Freeze alongside Ang & the Damn Band.  Vintage Kicks are the surf rockers who were named The Deli Philly’s Best New Artist of 2011 and things have only gone up from there – last month the Kicks were featured on The Bloomsbury Coalition‘s first split Copycats b/w New Jersey indie band SCOOBA.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show can be found here; below, listen Vintage Kicks’ contribution to the split and download it here.
