Pop punks Joyce Manor are returning to Philly tonight at the First Unitarian Church.

The show has a stacked lineup with Glocca Morra, Radiator Hospital, and Holy Death. More information and tickets are available here.
Anti-folk singer-songwriter and artist Jeffrey Lewis is bringing his versatile tunes, social commentary, and sometimes comedic vibes to the West Kensington Ministry tonight.

Lewis is touring with author/editor Jaimee Garbacik to promote their new book, Gender and Sexuality for Beginners; the multimedia performance will also include readings from the book.
