XPN welcomes The Dismemberment Plan to Union Transfer tonight. The D.C. indie rock band’s latest record Uncanney Valley dropped in October, ending a twelve year recording break that allowed band members to explore other interests. The broadened horizons are audible on the record, which stretches it’s influences from Jackson Browne to R&B. Tickets and information for tonight’s show with Yellow Ostrich can be found here. Below, watch The Dismemberment Plan perform “The City” live in D.C.
XPN welcomes Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside to the North Star Bar. Ford and her band of retro rockers have been in town a few times lately, performing a late night set at May’s Non-COMMvention and making a stop at Milkboy in July. During her last stay in Philly, Ford recorded a video of “Roll Around” with Out of Town Films on Quince Street. Watch the video below. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Mount Moriah and Pine Barons can be found here.
