Brooklyn experimental duo Buke and Gase play Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  Evolving out of punk / noise band Hominid, Buke and Gase members Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez make angular, dissonant post-rock with with elements of chamber folk.  The outfit followed up 2010′s debut LP Riposte with General Dome, released this past Tuesday.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Norwegian Arms and Ahleuchatistas can be found here.  Below, stream “Hiccup” from General Dome.

Atmospheric rock outfit Edison will be at Ortlieb’s Lounge tonight.  The local five-piece released their Living Room EP in January.  Creating an aura of a more streamlined Air, Edison utilize spacious, gauzy arrangements and drifting vocals for their soundscapes.  Tonight’s 21+ show with Twister Baby and Lo Rise is free; more information can be found here.  Below stream “Carry On” from the latest EP.

Country singer Lindi Ortega heads to the Tin Angel tonight.  Boasting a Juno nomination for her debut Little Red Boots and an appearance on ABC’s “Nashville“, the Toronto native tethers creative songwriting to fiery live performances that carry over into her recordings.  Little Red Boots was followed up by last year’s Cigarettes & Truckstops, which you can stream in full here.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Dustin Bentall & The Smokes can be found here.  Watch Lindi Ortega’s video for “The Day You Die” below.

Following her Free at Noon performance earlier today, Trixie Whitley performs at World Cafe Live tonight.  Whitley has accomplished a lot in her relatively brief 25 years, beginning by touring Europe with theatre and dance companies, moving on to become a DJ for Belgium’s Museum of Modern Art and finally moving to New York City to pursue a music career.  in 2011 Whitley teamed up with producer Daniel Lanois for his Black Dub project while recording her own material; she released her debut LP Fourth Corner earlier this week.  Tickets and information for tonight’s all-ages show with Dumpster Hunter can be found here.  Below, stream and download the title track to Whitley’s new album from her Folkadelphia session (full session here).

Folk musician Sera Cahoone returns to the area for a show at Burlap and Bean tonight.  The reserved singer and multi-instrumentalist released the achingly stellar Deer Creek Canyon last year, her third studio album.  Singing songs of homesickness, relationships and friendships, Cahoone harkens back to her childhood in the Colorado foothills for inspiration.  Tickets and information for the show in Newtown Square can be found here.  Below, watch her perform the title track to the 2012 LP and download the song here.
