Philly bedroom pop solo musician turned buzz band Alex G wraps up a summer tour tonight at The Fire, celebrating the release of DSU, its acclaimed debut full-length. The project of songwriter Alexander Giannascoli has been praised by Pitchfork and Rolling Stone for its downbeat introspection paired with melancholy but accessible melodies. Take a listen to DSU below, and get more information on tonight’s all-ages show here.

Thirty-one years running, the New Orleans institution Rebirth Brass Band plays a free show tonight in Lancaster’s Long’s Park. Blending funk and hip-hop sensibilities with a traditional brass band flair, these nine musicians are sure-fire crowd pleasers. Get more information at the XPN Concert Calendar.

Toronto punk four-piece Greys has a dense and hammering sound that recalls aggro 90s acts Helmet, Jawbox and Fugazi. Hell, their new album If Anything opens with a song called “Guy Picciotto” and the lyric “my hero lives down the street from me.” So you pretty much know where they’re coming from, but they wear it well: their songs hit hard but draw you in. Catch them tonight at Kung Fu Necktie; tickets and information at the XPN Concert Calendar.
