Americana indie-folk band New Sweden will be at World Cafe Live tonight at The Queen. The five-piece band, which just played the Firefly Music Festival in its home state of Delaware, has a robust, scratchy sound that makes it a folk powerhouse. New Sweden is set to release its latest album, Fabric Room, in four days, but is available for streaming now. Check out the song, “Burdened Days” off the new album and go to the XPN Concert Calendar for more information and tickets.

Singer-songwriter Natalie Merchant will be at the Keswick Theatre tonight. Merchant recently released her sixth studio album, Natalie Merchant — the first album release from the singer in over 13 years. Watch the hauntingly-beautiful track (yet creepy as hell video) “Giving Up Everything” below. More information and tickets can be found on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Americana band Northern Arms plays at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. Don’t expect bright and cheery from this ten-piece Philly band. Northern Arms definitely leans toward the darker side of Americana with chilling tracks like the one below. You can find more information about the show and tickets on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Twin Forks @ North Star Bar ($15, 7 p.m., all ages)

Psalmships @ Bourbon and Branch ($10, 8 p.m., 21+)
