Tonight’s Concert Picks: Brandywine Folk Fest, Busses at Johnny Brenda’s, K-OS at Union Transfer

By

good-old-warThis weekend marks the second year of the Brandywine Folk Festival.  From Friday through Sunday, you can enjoy the warm weather and music with the many many incredible bands, many of which hail from Philadelphia.  To name just a few (and I mean a few) out of this fantastic lineup, you can catch Good Old War, Mean Lady, The Districts, The Lawsuits and Cheers Elephant.  So if you’re looking for the best way to spend the final days of summer, the Brandywine Folk Fest is an incredible way to go.  What’s not to love about great music, food and frisbee golf?  Click here for ticket information. Below, watch the video for Good Old War’s “Calling Me Names.”

And if festivals aren’t your thing, Philadelphia indie rock group Busses headline Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  The group really traverses the cusp of rock n’ roll, bouncing from lighthearted psych-pop, to high-octane rock and all of the beautiful inbetweens.  If you’re a rock fan in general, this is a show you definitely will not want to miss.  Click here for ticket information and check out the live and hazy video for their new song, “Never Anywhere” below.

A skilled MC from Canada, K-OS has been rapping since the 90s.  Although he hasn’t been as popular here in the US, K-OS has incredible flow and a positive message to his music that really makes him stand out in the rap game.  Back in April he released his fifth LP, the double disc Black on Blonde.  For his new album, K-OS decided to divide the album in two, half of the album being hip-hop and the other half rock.  Now he’s on a tour in support of the album and he’ll be stopping by Union Transfer tonight.  If you’re a rap or rock fan, this is definitely the show to see.  Click here for ticket information and check out a sample tune below.
