Local instrumental rock outfit Mohican will play Kung Fu Necktie tonight.  Having released the single “Self-Propelled Organism” in July on a new label run by Parts Philly, Mohican’s newest EP The Abuse is Character will be available next week.  A quick listen to a couple of the songs on the EP uncovers an expansive and lush record that moves from Sigur Ros-like ambience to Circa Survive-esque melodic rock.  Watch the promo video for the EP below.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.

XPN welcomes Bettye LaVette to World Cafe Live.  The R&B / soul singer has been nominated for a Grammy twice during her five-decade-long career, most recently for her 2010 Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook release, on which she covered a number of classic hits by The Who, The Beatles and others.  Tonight, LaVette will be joined by St. Paul and the Broken Bones.  Tickets and information for the all-ages show can be found here.  Watch her perform The Who’s “Love Reign o’er Me” at the Kennedy Center below.

DIY PHL kicks-off their month of Tuesday Tune-Out curating with sets by EZ Discount and Teenage Bigfoot at PhilaMOCA.  Both bands played their first shows at DIY PHL’s November installment of First Time’s the Charm, a showcase of brand new bands playing live for the first time.  Tonight’s sets from the pop/punk and grunge/punk outfits will be followed by a screening of a surprise movie.  More information for the all-ages event can be found here.  Listen to “So Long Suckaz (It’s Been Real)” by Teenage Bigfoot below.
