Tonight’s Concert Picks: Tame Impala at The Electric Factory, Catnaps at PhilaMOCA, Peter Yarrow at Haddon Lake Park, Northern Arms at Ortlieb’s Longue


Tame-ImpalaThis Wednesday is chalked full of amazing music.  First up, the Austrian psych-rock group Tame Impala.  Out of the brilliant mind of group leader Kevin Parker, Tame Impala have released two amazing albums, Innerspeaker and Lonerism, both dealing with isolation in a trippy combination of 60s rock and modern electronic music.  Tonight, the band plays Electric Factory with Philly’s own Light Heat as the openers.  Check out the video for Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” below and click here for more concert information.

On Monday, Catnaps released their new EP, Forget About It.  Sadly, it will be their last release, as the group is breaking up.  But you can still catch them tonight for one final high-energy show at PhilaMOCA.  With their infectious mix of pop-punk that could’ve come straight out of the 90s, this is a band you don’t want to miss.

Tonight, if you’re looking to see a legend, Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary is playing Haddon Lake Park.  Though he gained fame in the early 1960s with Peter, Paul and Mary, Yarrow has been an active musician ever since.  Below watch Yarrow perform “The Wedding Song (There Is Love)”.

Northern Arms sound like they’ve come from 1800s America, a chorus of dark harmonies and quietly sounding instruments that at times sound like funeral dirges.  The result is beautiful atmospheric trad-folk that you just can’t get from groups like Mumford & Sons.  Tonight, they play Ortlieb’s Longue.  For more information, click here and check out the video from their performance at Union Transfer below.
