Before there was Pure Phase, before there was Screamadelica, there was Loop. The short-lived UK four-piece blended nervy electronic rhythms and towering psychedelic arrangements in a similar manner as Spiritualized and Primal Scream, but disbanded before those artists really took off. Reunited in 2013, Loop is taking a pass through the U.S. this spring and headlining Kung Fu Necktie tonight; get tickets and information on the show at the XPN Concert Calendar, and watch a video for their cover of Suicide’s “Rocket U.S.A” from the 1987 album The World In Your Eyes below.
Funky New Orleans crew The Revivalists makes their way to World Cafe Live tonight. The band’s sophomore release City of Sound was released in 2012, meaning it’s high time for some new material – maybe we’ll hear some new songs in the mix tonight. Check out a live video of “Criminal” below, and get tickets and more information on the show here.
Jersey native Behn Gillece brings his jazz quartet to Underground Arts for a headlining show tonight. A vibraphonist who’s been performing in the northeast jazz scene since 2006, Gillece has become a staple at legendary Greenwich Village club Small’s as well as Chris’ Jazz Cafe in Philly. Tonight his group performs with The Tim Brey Trio and The Alexa Barchini Duo.
