Dublin native / Philadelphia transplant John Byrne will take part in the North Star Bar‘s Victorian Dining Room Series tonight.  Byrne was formally the front-man for Irish folk band Patrick’s Head.  Following the release of his debut solo record After the Wake in 2010, the singer-songwriter sold out World Cafe Live multiple times and opened for a number of well-known acts including Enter the Haggis and The Hothouse Flowers.  Tonight’s 21+ show with Spoken Life is free; for more information, go here.  Below, watch John Byrne perform at World Cafe Live.

American rock band Little Feat come to the Philadelphia area tonight for a show at Musikfest Cafe.  Formed in 1969, Little Feat have a built a strong legacy over their decades-long career, blending many traditional styles of American music (including bluegrass, southern folk and rock ‘n’ roll) to make a sound dubbed “as American as apple pie.”  Tonight’s show in Bethlehem follows the band’s 2012 release Rooster Rag, their fifteenth studio album.  Tickets and information can be found here.  Below, watch Little Feat perform “Truck Stop Girl” live.
