The British electro influenced R&B band Jungle, make their Philadelphia debut tonight at the Union Transfer. Listen below to “The Heat” a track layered with swooning and swelling tech sounds, R&B grooves, all mirrored by soothing vocals. Get tickets and more information about the show at the XPN Concert Calendar here.

Playing tonight at the Junction Center in Manheim, is Jake Shimabukuro, the Hawaiian ukulele genius. His shows are nothing short of breathtaking and he is indeed a master at his instrument. In “143 Kellys Song” from Peace Love Ukelele, as in all of his music, Shimabukuro pours his heart into acoustic melodies that roll and tumble through him. Tickets and more information about the show here.

Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, an infectiously fun Zydeco band, are playing tonight at Building 24. Chubby Carrier fuses 70’s funk, blues, rock and roll and Zydeco sounds into high energy dance songs. Carrier can liven up even a standstill crowd and often pulls audience members onstage as he jams out on his accordion. Below is audio for “Shake it” one of Chubby’s funkiest dance tunes. Tickets and more information about the show here.

Moosh & Twist, a hip hop Philly duo, is playing tonight at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster. Hands down, they’re one of Philly best live hip-hop groups and the duo have an exorbitant amount of energy on stage and are out on tour in support of their new Living Out Loud album. Tickets and more information about the show here.
