Danish chamber dream-pop outfit Efterklang headline Johnny Brenda’s tonight. Following up their 2010 debut Magic Chairs is 2012′s Piramida, a multi-media artistic endeavor that included a trek to the long-forgotten town of Piramida near the North Pole. Amassing over one-thousand field recordings for use on their latest LP, Efterklang turned their journey into a full-length companion documentary called The Ghost of Piramida. Tickets and information for their 21+ show with Jherek Bishoff can be found here. Watch the video for “The Living Layer” below.
Local roots-rock band The Districts play Fergie’s Pub tonight for the Ron Gallo Revue. Things haven’t slowed down one bit in 2013 for the young band – after a busy 2012 that saw the release of their debut LP Telephone, a win at the Beta Hi-Fi Emerging Artist competition surrounded by a slew of shows, the four-piece took home the Best Central PA Band title at last week’s Tri State Indie Awards. They’ve quickly become one of the city’s most sought-after live acts thanks to their rousing energy on stage. More information for tonight’s free show with People’s Blues of Richmond can be found here. Stream and download “Went to the City” from The Districts’ October 2012 Key Studio Session below.
