Tonight’s Concert Picks: XPN Welcomes Leagues to MilkBoy, Adam and Dave’s Bloodline at Johnny Brenda’s, XPN Welcomes Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale to World Cafe Live

By

Leagues

Leagues combines the talents of three Nashville rock scene veterans.  The group, comprised of Thad Cockrell, Tyler Burkum and Jeremy Lutito, recently released an EP of jangly pop rock.  They’ve opened for the likes of The Fray and Matt Kearny, but they’re headlining their own shows as they tour the country for the next month.  Tonight’s show at MilkBoy promises to be a dance party.  On the band’s website, it boasts music so joyous, it actually provokes laughter.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show are available here.  Below, watch the music video for their song Spotlight.

Adam & Dave’s Bloodline, the curiously named project of five local Philadelphia musicians (only two of whom are referenced in the band name, and none of whom are related), has a catalogue that suggests a heavy beach rock and shoegaze influence, but possibly also heavy sedatives. Their music is relaxed to a point of sounding like, as is written on the Adam & Dave’s Bloodline Bandcamp page, “bloozy, boozy, guitar-driven psych-washed burners.” Their show tonight centers on the release of a new EP, 2×2.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show are available here. Below, stream two tracks from their upcoming EP.

When Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale came together to write and record Buddy and Jim, the only surprising aspect was that they hadn’t made this album already. They’re two country veterans and good friends who created good, old school country music, and they are now on an album tour. You can catch Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale at the Free at Noon today, or this evening at World Café Live. Tickets and information for the all ages evening show are available here.  Below, watch Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale perform “It Hurts Me” from their album.
