XPN welcomes Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds to The Keswick Theatre tonight with Sharon Van Etten. The Australian band released their fifteenth studio album called Push the Sky Away in February following a five-year hiatus. Tonight’s show is a rare appearance for the band, as The Seeds have only played Philadelphia a handful of times during their 30+ year career. Opening up the evening is Brooklyn singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten, touring in support of her stand-out 2012 LP Tramp. Tickets and information for tonight’s all-ages show can be found here. Below, watch the video for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ “We No Who U R” and listen back to Sharon Van Etten’s Free at Noon performance from 2012 here.
Canadian electronic outfit Shout Out Out Out Out play Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The six-piece crafts lighthearted synth, drum, bass and vocal compositions that blend disco melodies with math / chiptune sensibilities resulting in music that instantly makes you want to dance. Shout Out Out Out Out have released three full-lengths over their near ten year career, most recently putting forth Spanish Moss and Total Loss in 2012. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Funeral Flowers can be found here. Watch Shout Out Out Out Out’s video for “Coming Home” from last year’s Spanish Moss and Total Loss below.
