Divers open for Auctioneer at Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The brainchild of local musicians Emily Ann Zeitlyn and Ross Bellenoit, Divers are a new quartet filled out by Tom Bendel (Buried Beds) and Todd Erk (The Weeds). Alternating between wailing, dynamic flourishes and upbeat rock-outs, the Philly band’s still-growing discography of three tracks is an enticing preview of what’s to come. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Auctioneer and Anna Vogelzang can be found at the WXPN Concert Calendar. Stream “Wild Things” below and right-click here to download it for free.
Chipocrite is the performer for tonight’s Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA, curated by 8static. An exuberant fan of The Big Lebowski, Chipocrite will be performing a Dude-themed set of electronic, video game-based tracks followed by a screening of the movie. Admission for the all-ages show is a suggested $5 donation at the door. More information can be found here. Below, watch Chipocrite perform at MAG Fest 11.
