Tonight’s Concert Picks: Little Big League at Johnny Brenda’s, Asaad at Silk City, Trail of Dead at Underground Arts and more


It was a good 2013 for Philly indie-punk four piece Little Big League. The band released it’s debut full length, toured and garnered attention from national media outlets like Pitchfork. Now they’re playing their first headlining show at Johnny Brenda’s just in time for front woman Michelle Zauner to show off her new strat and the band to hopefully unveil some of the songs they’ve been tracking for album number two. Tickets and info can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.

After three years of free-flowing EPs and mixtapes, it’s been months since we heard the last new track from Philly rapper Assad. Which means he’s planning something big. Catch his headlining show tonight at Silk City and listen to his most recent single, “Block Boy,” below.
