Self-proclaimed “acid gospel power trio” St. James and the Apostles continue their residency (which takes place every Wednesday of this month) at Ortlieb’s tonight. The band plans to release the follow-up to 2012’s Baphomet in September. With religious undertones, the band’s garage rock sound takes the listener to church and back. Listen to “Kiss & Tell” below, hear frontman Jamie Mahon’s appearance on the Going to Hell podcast here and come out to see the band for free.

New Orleans-based psych rockers Bipolaroid headline Milkboy tonight in support of their latest record Twin Language. For some, the new album may sound like a set of interludes as none of the songs clock in over 3 minutes in length which differs from 2010’s Illusion Fields but as far as quality the band doesn’t disappoint. They maintain their signature psych-pop sound but at a faster pace. Listen to “Get Off My Fence” below and get tickets here.

Grammy Award-winning old-time string band Carolina Chocolate Drops will play at Sellersville Theater tonight. Their latest record Leaving Eden was released back in 2012 and last year they announced the departure of multi-instrumentalist Dom Flemons and introduced two new musicians to the lineup. Watch their cover of Blu Cantrell’s “Hit ‘Em Up Style” below.
