Fiona Apple and singer/songwriter Blake Mills bring their collaborative Anything We Want tour to Merriam theater tonight. Apple’s sultry vocals and damaged goods attitude should combine well with the innovative guitar stylings of Mills. The pair will unite on songs as well as perform their own individual music. Get tickets and more information on the show here.

Philly based band Oldermost takes the stage at Boot & Saddle tonight. Their soothing vocals and soft-rock sound will warm the room, but don’t get too comfortable- this is definitely a rock band at heart. Tickets and information on the show can be found here.

Smooth soul legend Lee Fields performs as Lee Fields and the Expressions at Arden Gild Hall this evening. With an incredible career spanning 43 years, Fields combines old-school funk and soul to create truly authentic soul music, often drawing comparisons to James Brown. With the addition of The Expressions – the house band for Brooklyn based record label Truth and Soul – tonight’s performance promises to be rich and full.
