With 20 years in the industry under his belt, singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson released his eighth album Last of the Great Pretenders last summer via Vanguard Records. After scoring a platinum hit with 2007′s succulent pop ballad “Come On Get Higher” (and playing the XPoNential Music Festival in 2008), Nathanson’s fanbase expanded greatly. Tonight, the Massachusetts native takes to the World Cafe Live stage for a show benefiting WXPN’s Musicians On Call initiative that brings musicians to the bedsides of hospital patients. Watch “Kinks Shirt” below and get tickets here.
Wilmington psych-pop outfit Teen Men released their single “Hiding Records” late last year and tonight they’re playing Boot and Saddle. Nick Krill and Joe Hobson of The Spinto Band formed Teen Men with an artsy vision which they enlisted photographer Catharine Maloney and filmmaker Albert Birney to help enrich. Watch “Hiding Records” from their upcoming EP and get tickets here.
Still elated from releasing their debut record Curse the Weather in September, Philly alt-rockers Mo Lowda and The Humble will play at the TLA tonight. The band incorporates elements of pop and funk into its unique rock sound. Get tickets here and listen to “I Don’t Know” below.
