After a full year of festival performances and a nationwide tour with White Denim, there’s still no stopping The Districts. Yesterday, they performed at WXPN’s NonCOMM, and tonight, they’ll headline an all ages show in the First Unitarian Church basement along with Clear Plastic Masks, Pine Barons and Fly Golden Eagle. The show starts at 8 p.m. and the $12 tickets can be purchased here or at the door.

Post punk band Swans have been around for quite some time. Founded in 1982 by musician Michael Gira, the experimental outfit produced stunning work consistantly until its hiatus in 1997. But since reemerging in 2010, they’re stronger than ever. Their rekindling has resulted in three expansive experimental albums with their newest, To Be Kind, released just this year. Catch them tonight as they play Union Transfer; the show starts at 8:30 p.m. and the $10 tickets can be purchased here.

Hoodie Allen may be gaining popularity because of his boy-next-door persona. The rapper, a 2010 Wharton School of Business graduate, decided to pursue his passion of rapping upon graduation instead of marketing and finance – his field of study. Since then, he’s gained three EP’s and four mixtapes to his name. Check him out tonight at Underground Arts. The show starts at 630 p.m. and the $30 tickets can be purchased here.
