Philly garage rock four-piece The Eeries are back in South Philly after a winter tour, and are part of a big lineup at Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The band released its debut full-length Home Alone on cassette via Burger Records back in September, and you can get a good sense of the ramshackle rock and roll fun in its eleven tracks by listening to “Wait on You.” The Eeries perform with Hellshovel, Acid Baby Jesus, Niche, Devil at My Side and ((TACO)) tonight at Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 North Front Street. Tickets are available at the door, more information on the 21+ show can be found here.
Following a December appearance at World Cafe Live, Benjamin Francis Leftwich returns to the venue for a headlining show tonight. The emerging UK singer-songwriter has a hushed, introspective style akin to Frightened Rabbit, Nick Drake and Jose Gonzales, and has also become renowned for his unique cover versions (not unlike Gonzales). Below, download a free covers EP from Leftwich for the price of your email address. Tickets and more information on the 21+ show can be found here.
