Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green headlines a show for the hometown crowd in Doylestown Tonight, performing at Siren Records with Commonwealth Choir. Green’s 2013 album Young Legs mixed in space rock tones with piano ballads, showing a mature and yearning side to the punk songwriter. Meanwhile, up-and-coming rockers Commonwealth Choir oughta have some new material on hand from the new EP they’ll release next month. Tickets and information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Watch Green’s video for “Young Legs” below.

Like Elvis Costello, Philly’s Mike Bell and the Movies have one leg in the grit of punk rock and the other in the hooks of timeless pop songwriting. The new Nothing Works was released digitally earlier this month, with vinyl and cassette editions on the way; its catchy and fun songs will have you pumping your fist and tapping your feet. Give a listen to the album below and get information on the show here.

Austin psych powerhouse The Black Angels are ready to get weird tonight at Union Transfer. Still on tour in support of their 2013 release Indigo Meadow, the band offsets its heavy heady noise with accessible melodies or, depending on how you look at it, writes pop songs that travel to imaginative sonic spaces. Tickets and info on the 21+ show here.

Also tonight:

The Tri-State Indie Awards at World Cafe Live featuring the following artists (6 p.m., $20-$50 21+)
