University of Pennsylvania’s punk rock frat, Pi Lam, is ringing in spring the right way: by way of 18 local acts paired with a “face-melting” BBQ (with vegan-friendly items) they call “Human BBQ XXXIV.” On the bill, we’ve got bands like Roof Doctor, Mumblr, Cold Fronts, Secret Plot to Destroy the Universe and Slingshot Dakota with plenty, plenty more. The event costs $15 (that’s not even a buck per band!) and starts at noon and is scheduled to go until midnight at the frat.
Amy Ray, who some might know as a member of folk-duo The Indigo Girls, is coming tonight to World Cafe Live. With four solo albums to her name, Ray just released her fifth released this past January, which hardly strays from her previous work. Her country, raspy voice soaks the album with familiarity and comfort. Tonight’s show starts at 8 p.m. and the $15 tickets can be purchased here.
Three-piece, all female punk band No Other released their newest EP, I Believe in Werner Herzog, in October, but it’s still sounding fresh months later. Oozing 80s punk influences (with a hint of contemporaries like Screaming Females), the three-piece has their sound down to a science. Check them out tonight at Kung Fu Necktie joined by Radical Dads (featuring members from Clap Your Hand Say Yeah!). The show starts at 8 p.m. and the $8 tickets can be purchased here.
