Tonight’s Concert Picks: Cub Sport / Communion Philly at Underground Arts, Mobb Deep at TLA, Prism Quartet at World Cafe Live and more


CubSportAustrailian indie-pop outfit Cub Sport will play this month’s Communion Club Night at Underground Arts for their very first show in Philadelphia. This tour is the first US/Canada run for the band who self-released their Paradise EP last year. Their sound is super energetic and poppy at times (see “Paradise”) and more mellow and subdued at others (see “Shuffle”) but it’s all done in a dewy dream pop context that’s pretty hard to resist at both ends of the spectrum. Watch “Paradise” below and get tickets here.

Veteran hip-hop duo Mobb Deep will play the TLA tonight for The Infamous Mobb Deep Tour. Their new album The Infamous Mobb Deep is their first in 8 years and arrived right before the band celebrates the 20th anniversary of their classic 1995 record The Infamous next year. Watch “Taking You Off Here” below and get tickets here.

Chamber ensemble Prism Quartet will rock World Cafe Live tonight in support of their upcoming album People’s Emergency Center (due May 27th). This year, the saxophone quartet also celebrates their 30th anniversary. Get tickets here.
