Sturgill Simpson follows up a performance at the Philadelphia Folk Festival yesterday with a set at the Ardmore Music Hall tonight. The Kentucky country singer has been finding himself in the Philly area pretty frequently lately – he also played at the Communion Showcase this past April. As John Vettese writes, Simpson “does honest American music with heartfelt depth and a touch of psychedelic orchestrations,” comparing him to Gram Parsons rather than Johnny Cash. Tickets and information for the show at the Ardmore Music Hall can be found here. Watch the video for “Turtles All the Way Down” below.
BITBY celebrates the season with a stocked line-up at The TLA tonight for its Summer Sounds Showcase. The all-locals evening will feature performances by 2014 XPoNential Music Festival performers Commonwealth Choir along with Air is Human, Pine Barons, Shorty Boy Boy, Weekender and Mark Lanky. It’ll be a sampling of the city’s newer bands, crossing genres from ambient to indie rock to psych pop and many more. Tickets and information can be found here.
