South Philly’s Point Breeze play Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The punk rock trio released their debut Armchair Activist on cassette this past October, featuring three songs that are powerful enough (and aggressive enough) to knock you out of your chair with spiraling riffs, weighty vocals and crushing drums. The cassette quickly sold-out on Point Breeze’s Bandcamp page, but the three songs are still available as digital name-your-own-price downloads here. Tickets and information for the 21+ show with Mumblr, APE! and Ex-Breathers can be found here. Below, listen to “Saul” from Armchair Activist.
As families continue to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, XPN Welcomes the Red Cross’ benefit concert tonight at World Cafe Live. With sets by The Karmic Repair Company, The Mighty Manatees, Turnips, Miles Thompson Band, Blue Wave Ramblers, Mike Greer and Co. and Whiskeyhickon Boys, the Benefit will raise funds for East Coast residents still feeling the effects of the storm with music provided by local Americana, bluegrass, folk and reggae bands. Tickets and information for the concert can be found here; watch Whiskeyhickon Boys perform “Always Raining” live below.
