Philly duo Pattern is Movement brings their high-pitched vocals and dynamic blend of keyboards, vocals and drums to Union Transfer tonight. Gaining notable recognition for their recent cover of D’Angelo’s “Unititled (How Does it Feel),” the group is getting ready to release its fourth album (and first since 2008). Their single “Suckling” is reminiscent of what James Blake would sound like blended with organ-like keyboard vamps and drums. Their music is like nothing out there, and the show is sure to be a treat. Get tickets here. Below, listen to “Suckling.”

Electronic/ World fusion dance trio Beats Antique will be unleashing their live experience at the TLA tonight. Their sound, a mixture of middle eastern traditional music fused with heavy glitch-dub-edm influence, is meant to take listeners on a “journey,” and if nothing else it makes for quite the dance party. The TLA show promises to be a lively and funky one. Get tickets here.

Indie pop/rock band Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin will be performing at North Star Bar this evening. Driven by intoxicating vocal melodies (sometimes strikingly similar to the likes of Elliot Smith, other times high pitched and digitized similar to the Shins), catchy chords and even catchier hooks, SSLYBY will be a great show at North Star. Get tickets here. (8pm, $12, 21+)
