Tonight’s Concert Picks: Hayes Carll at Sellerville Theater, He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister at North Star Bar, Telekinesis at Johnny Brenda’s

JRM_Gpub_181891_C16_002_300rgb.jpgCountry music staple Hayes Carll will be passing through Sellerville Theater tonight, along with opening act Warren Hood & the Goods. Carll hasn’t released a new record since 2011’s KMAG YOYO, but that hasn’t stopped him from touring as much as he can. The Texan singer/song-writer will take his rootsy country tunes down the east coast before playing a handful of shows in his home state. You never know when an act like this will be coming back around, so don’t miss your chance to see this award-winning country crooner in the lovely Sellersville Theater.

He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister is an oddball alt-country group from LA, with jovial tunes that can recall classic groups like Creedence Clearwater Revival and the Mamas & the Papas simultaneously. It’s an invigorating blend of many genres, and the group gives it all an undeniable pop gleam that makes their brand of blues stand out from the countless other groups currently interpreting the genre.  The band is apparently taking their act to new places on this tour, with an expanded line-up and a bunch of new tunes ready to be road-tested. Supporting acts are Beach Day and Jeffrey Lewis and the Rain, and this 21+ show is at North Star Bar; tickets are $10.

Michael Lerner’s pop-rock project Telekinesis is an airy bouquet of all things pop circa 2000, 1990, and 1980, all at once. What makes this appreciation for history sound relevant is that it doesn’t try too hard to emulate sounds from the past, but rather does so in an attempt to make music that’s fresh and progressive. The group will play at Johnny Brenda’s tonight, along with SoCal indie-pop act Deep Sea Diver. Tickets are $12.
