Central PA natives The Districts will celebrate the release of their first EP on Fat Possum Records tonight with a free show at AKA Music in Old City. The Americana-rock band is about to head out on a winter tour with White Denim, with a South By Southwest appearance and spring shows on the horizon. Pre-order the EP here, and watch the band’s HotBox session performance of “Radiator” below.
West Philly’s On the Water will play PhilaMOCA’s Tune-out Tuesday show tonight. The band classifies itself as “oddball folk” which is a fitting description considering their music which is folksy at heart but has its own gritty special sauce. Listen to “Screwtop” below and get more show details here.
Philly five-piece Cheerleader made some waves with a home released string of demos last year, and they’re getting set to release a full EP of their breezy sixties-influenced psych rock. They play Kung Fu Necktie tonight, and more information on the show can be found here. Check out the “New Daze” video below.
