New Zealand’s The Ruby Suns play Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The psych / pop band is touring in support of their dreamy Christopher LP, which they released earlier this year on Sub Pop. Using his world travels as inspiration for all three Ruby Suns full lengths, Ryan McPhun drew inspiration from a trip to Scandinavia for this most recent effort. Lyrically, Christopher is a breakup album but sonically it’s an adventure into both the musical and natural landscapes of the north. Tickets and information for theie 21+ show with Painted Palms can be found here. Watch the video for “Kingfisher Call Me” below and download the song here.
Electronic artist Daedelus will be at Underground Arts tonight. The Los Angeles producer’s early childhood dream of becoming an inventor is evident throughout his discography, as he patches, constructs and fuses seemingly disparate samples together to form his unique narrative arc. His most recent full-length, Bespoke, was released in 2011 through Ninjatune Records and traces his infatuation with Victorian-era fashion. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Ryan Hemsworth, Salva and Samo Sound Boy can be found here. Stream “Suit Yourself” from the LP below.
Bucks County jam band Hiding from Andy play World Cafe Live upstairs tonight. The band is celebrating the release of You Can Go Home Tomorrow, their third studio album and a record dedicated to their fans, friends and family. Drawing influences from Phish and Umphrey’s McGee, the local quartet create upbeat and joyful groove music with funky lyrics. Tickets and information for the all-ages show with Wesley Cook can be found here. Stream You Can Go Home Tomorrow below and grab a free download from Hiding from Andy’s Bandcamp here.
