To celebrate his new album, A Miner’s Town, Philly-based folksy singer-songwriter Marc Silver is playing a record release show at Johnny Brenda’s with his band The Stonethrowers. He’ll be playing along with Pete Donnelly & the Wise Easy and Ross Bellenoit. Below, take a listen to a track off his new record, All We Are,” which Silver says may be his favorite song on the album. Tickets and information can be found here.

Former members of Jefferson Airplane make up the core of bluesy classic rock band Hot Tuna, and their acoustic tour brings them to the Keswick Theater tonight. Their last album, Steady As She Goes, was released in 2011 – listen to Jorma Kaukonen and Barry  Mitterhoff perform “Things that Might Have Been” at Red House Records. Tickets and information can be found here.

Philly-via-Boston indie folk outfit The Gallerist play The Fire tonight, along with Gatherings, The People, and Hani Zahra. The Gallerist’s chillingly awesome guitar and banjo melodies mixed with lush, warm vocals makes for a great overall sound. Stream their album A Falling Waltz below, and find tickets and information here.
