Joseph Arthur is a musician unlike most. In addition to his songwriting, Arthur is also a well-established visual artist, designing the cover-art for almost his entire discography. Perhaps it’s this kind of multi-media tendency that gives Arthur’s songwriting such complexity, and gives Arthur himself a unique range of sound and style. His latest, The Ballad of Boogie Christ, is out now via Lonely Astronaut Records. The singer/songwriter will be stopping in Philly tonight for a show at World Cafe Live. Check out the video for his song “Saint of Impossible Causes” from The Ballad of Boogie Christ, below. Find tickets and information here.
California-based alt-rockers The Neighborhood will be in town tonight to play Union Transfer, with the 1975 supporting. The band’s full-length debut, I Love You, came out earlier this year via Columbia, featuring the infectious single, “Sweater Weather” (watch the video below). Find tickets and more information on their Union Transfer show here.
This month marks the one year anniversary of PhilaMOCA‘s Tuesday Tune-Out film-and-music showcase. Tonight lo-fi punk rockers NONA will be there to celebrate. Certainly a band not to miss, the local trio recently released debut full-length Through The Head, in April. The album is currently available on their Bandcamp page. Find tickets and info here.
Light Heat will celebrate the release of its debut full-length album tonight with a performance at AKA Music in Old City. The band, recently profiled in Interview Magazine, is fronted by Quentin Stoltzfus (formerly of Mazarin) and recorded a Key Studio Session you can download here.
