Tonight’s Concert Picks: Autre Ne Veut at Voyeur for Making Time, Divers at The Fire, Janelle Monae at Penn’s Spring Fling, David Bromberg Quartet at Landis Theater, Netherfriends at Church of the Advocate

ANVAutre Ne Veut headlines tonight’s Making Time event at Voyeur Nightclub.  Based in Brooklyn, Autre Ne Veut is the electronic R&B / pop project of former jingle composer Arthur Ashin.  Anxiety, released in February, is Ashin’s second effort under the moniker, which means “I think of none other” in French.  Also performing at tonight’s party are Delorean, Jacques Greene and Doldrums.  Tickets and information can be found here. Below, watch Autre Ne Veut’s video for “Counting.”

Local quartet Divers perform at The Fire tonight.  Comprised of Emily Ana Zeitlyn, Ross Bellenoit, Todd Erk and Thomas Bendel, the young band of seasoned Philly musicians has been steadily packing shows under their belt in recent months.  The three songs posted on Divers’ website offer up some post punk / dark wave sensibilities at certain points and catchy indie pop at other points, with Zeitlyn’s vocal delivery evoking a female Morrissey.  Tickets and information for tonight’s show with Paper Castles, Brad Hinton and Todd Henkin can be found here.  Below, stream “Wild Thing.”

R&B performer Janelle Monae will take part in Penn’s Spring Fling tonight.  The Kansas City native caught the attention of Diddy’s label Bad Boy Records after the independent / self release of The Audition in 2003.  Monae’s breakthrough effort The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III) was released via Bad Boy in 2010 and featured the instant hit and Grammy nominee “Tightrope.”  Monae will be joined by mash-up artist Girl Talk and rapper Tyga at Franklin Field tonight.  Tickets and information can be found here.  Below, watch the video for “Tightrope.”

David Bromberg Quartet performs at the Landis Theater tonight.  Bromberg has been a mainstay of the music scenes in Philadelphia, New York and Wilmington since his days at Columbia University thanks to his skilled guitar playing and humorous lyrics.  Over the  years, the Philadelphia-born multi-instrumentalist has recorded on albums by Jerry Garcia, Bob Dylan, Jorma Kaukonen and more.  Tickets and information for tonight’s show in Vineland, NJ can be found here.  Below, watch the David Bromberg Quartet perform “Fifty Dollar Wig” live at the 2012 Byron Bay Bluesfest.

Netherfriends stops by Church of the Advocate tonight.  Spearheaded by Chicago resident Shawn Rosenblatt, Netherfriends is a melodic indie pop project that embarked on a “50 Songs 50 States” project recently, which will be presented on July 4th as an interactive map.  Last spring, Rosenblatt joined Norwegian Arms and other Philly area bands for a show benefiting Calcutta House, a resource for homeless men and women suffering from AIDS.  Tonight, Netherfriends will be joined by DC’s Drunken Sufis and local bands Rasputin’s Secret Police and MOSS.  Admission is at the door; more information can be found on the Facebook event page here.  Below, watch Rosenblatt perform “St. Louis, MO” from his recent Middle America LP.
