Tonight, M.I.A. graces the Tower Theater stage and fans (old and new) should, as always, expect a little bit of everything from the singer-songwriter’s genre-bending music. On her latest album Matangi, it’s clear that her sound is still a hybrid of electronic, pop, hip-hop and world music. Best known for her 2007 platinum hit “Paper Planes”, M.I.A. isn’t a traditional singer or rapper; she’s crafted a style that’s somewhere in between and it’s infectious. Watch “Y.A.L.A.” below and get tickets here

Philly rapper Gliss is headlining an all-local hip-hop bill on the Kung Fu Necktie stage tonight. Joining him are Taylor Dunn, Kylledge and Lil’ Ram. More info here.

Folk-rockers Woods will celebrate the release of their brand new record With Light And With Love tonight at Boot and Saddle. Their Beatles-esque approach to folk music is rich in melody and lyricism as it wins over listeners. Check out lead single “Leaves Like Glass” below and get tickets here.
