After celebrating the release of his RFM LP with a sold-out crowd at The TLA a couple of months ago, local hip hop artist Chill Moody comes to The Blockley for another celebration – this time a celebration of love.  Moody will team up once again with Beano and Hank McCoy to perform the last installment in their Valentine’s Day mixtape Who Do You Love? in its entirety.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.  Below, watch them perform a track from the mixtape live in Love Park.

Local hardcore punk buddies Pissed Jeans celebrate the release of their third LP Honeys tonight at Underground Arts.  The Key featured the Sub Pop band in this week’s Studio Session and it is quite the nihilistic rager (though the bandmates are extremely friendly people in real life).  With all four Pissed Jeans members holding down full-time jobs and families, Honeys comes four years after their last effort; read more about what went on during those years here.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Leather and Lantern can be found here.  Watch the video for “Bathroom Laughter” below and check out their Key Studio Session here.

Goodnight, Texas play Kung Fu Necktie tonight for The Swollen Fox‘s showcase. Described as a “transcontinental garage Appalachian collaboration,” Goodnight, Texas combines the musical talents of Patrick Dyer Wolf and Avi Vincour (The Stone Foxes).  The two met in San Francisco and started a long distance musical partnership that is geographically marked in the center by a town called Goodnight in Texas.  The band’s sound crosses the vast expanse of the country as well, blending dusty western ballads with southern folk instrumentation.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Toy Soldiers and August John Lutz II (The Levee Drivers) can be found here.  Watch Goodnight, Texas perform “I’m Going to Work on Maggie’s Farm Forever” below and get a free download of “Jesse Got Trapped in a Coal Mine.”
