Like a punkier Philly version of TV On the Radio, indie-rock quartet DRGN King headlines Johnny Brenda’s tonight. Though the group hasn’t released anything new since 2013′s Paragraph Nights, they’ve been more than active playing at festivals, recording a Daytrotter session, recording videos (i.e. this cover of The Dead Milkmen’s “Punk Rock Girl”) and more. Oh, and they’ve been playing a ton of shows. Come hang out with them tonight at 9:00 along with local rockers Mumblr and New York-based band Porches. Tickets for the 21+ show are $10 and can be purchased here.
They’re a slice of sweet, Americana apple pie. The Whiskey Gentry is bringing their sound tonight to MilkBoy. The seven-piece supergroup is promoting their latest endeavor, Holly Grove, an 11-piece album filled with bluegrass inspirations, vibrant horns, foot stomping instrumentation and honest vocals. Tonight’s show will start at 8:30 and $10 tickets can be purchased here.
Last week, Adrien Reju released her cover of Tom Waits’ “I Hope That I Don’t Fall in Love With You.” A far cry from the icon’s distinctive, gritty voice, Reju’s rendition, recorded on a “vintage camera app” according to her Facebook, sounds like a confectionery masterpiece in comparison. Watch her perform similarly sweet, folky tunes off of her newly released EP Lucky Ones, tonight at 6 at Kennett Flash. Tickets are $19 at the door.
