London’s Palma Violets will play Boot and Saddle tonight. The band released its debut album 180 earlier this year on Rough Trade Records, and their first single “Best of Friends” (which you can stream below) was voted NME’s 2012 Song of the Year. With nods to ’80s punk and modern rock, Palma Violets have crafted a sound that translates well on record but blossoms in a live setting. Details on the 21+ show can be found here.
Folk-pop goddess Vienna Teng celebrates her new album Aims tonight at World Café Live. In her recent interview with Chicago Sun-Times, Teng describes how her approach to her new record differed from past albums. With her piano prowess and personal lyrics, Teng reels you in before you even realize it. Get tickets to the show here.
PhilaMOCA welcomes local favorites Modern Baseball back home tonight. The band released their Sports EP last fall on Lame-O Records. Brendan Luken’s vocals and catchy laments are a flashback to Violent Femmes classics and contemporaries, The Front Bottoms. More details on tonight’s show can be found on our concert calendar.
