Flannel shirts and ripped jeans are making a comeback tonight at Boot & Saddle’s 90s tribute with Philly folk artists Ali Wadsworth, Hezekiah Jones and Foxhound. Wadsworth, who released her soulful, twangy 10-piece self-debuted album in October, will tap into her inner-90s child to perform her renditions off of Pearl Jam’s Ten. Jones, who’s self-described as sounding like “post-apocalyptic White Album, as covered by Sufjan Stevens” will put his folky spin on Lemonhead’s It’s a Shame About Ray, while Foxhound will transition their usual Americana-folk sound into songs from Nirvana’s Unplugged, two days after Kurt Cobain’s birthday. Tonight’s homage starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here; check out some vintage recordings of each of these artists performing locally in the 90s below.
Singer/songwriter Amy Correia will fill Steel City Coffee House in Phoenixville, Pa. tonight with her raw, honest and foot-stomping sound. Though it’s been about three years since the release of her latest album, You Go Your Way, which won Best Folk Singer-Songwriter Album 2011 Independent Music, the 45-year-old songstress explores dapples in different creative mediums as well, including writing. Read about how she fell in love with one of her inspirations Jeff Buckley, and buy tickets for tonight’s show, which starts at 7:00 p.m. here.
It’s an indie/punk rocker’s dream come true. Tonight, Chicago-based band Into It. Over It. will headline and play alongside openers A Great Big Pile of Leaves, The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, and Philly favorites Hurry and Glocca Morra. Evan Weiss, who goes under the moniker of Into It. Over It., released his latest album, Intersections, in October of last year. The 12-piece album is full of math-rockey, sporadic guitar lines and overly pronounced lyrics, in typical indie/emo fashion. Newly added tickets to the near sold-out show are $13 in advance and can be purchased here.
