Featuring members from The Weeds, Birdie Busch’s band and Buried Beds, Divers are about as local as a group of musicians can get. Their music falls somewhere in between folk, rock and a little country and can go from ambient tones to straight up rock in a heartbeat. They’re playing at Johnny Brenda’s tonight; for more information on the 21+ show, click here. Below, watch Divers perform “Take Me Back” for Kettle Pot Tracks’ studio’s On the Hill series.

The Tressels are an great local rock band playing at The Note. Along with Low Cut Connie, who did an amazing Free at Noon at World Cafe Live last week, it’s sure to be a great show. Falling somewhere in between 80s rock and country, The Tressels released their second album, American Midnight, last fall. Check out “Rock & Roll Dreams Come True” below and click here for more information about the show.

Hailing from Lancaster PA, Douglas Thomas creates his own unique brand of folk, that seem equal parts The Shins and Sea Wolf. Tonight, you can catch him in Philadelphia playing at World Cafe Live a long with a few other artists. Check out “Paulownia” from his debut EP Trimmings below.
