Little Big League celebrates the release of Tropical Jinx at Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  The record marks a difficult several months for the band, and tonight’s show will be the last for a while as front-woman Michelle Zauner moves to the west coast.  The record, though, is Little Big League’s second overall and first for its new label Run For Cover Records.  The collection of cathartic personal songs explore themes of love, loss and growing-up over catchy, edgy indie rock.  Tickets and information for the 21+ release party can be found here.  Listen to the title track below.

Laura Stevenson headlines Milkboy tonight, as she warms up for a tour with Kevin Devine happening early next year.  The former Bomb the Music Industry! singer released her third full-length Wheel, which brought her into the Folkadelphia studio to record a live session.  You can listen back to that appearance below and pick up tickets here.

Sister duo Lily and Madeleine perform upstairs at World Cafe Live.  The Indianapolis-born pair began writing music together just a few years go, shortly before recording and releasing their debut EP in 2013.  Just a year later, they’ve put out a sophomore full-length, Fumes, on Asthmatic Kitty.  Listen back to their Folkadelphia Session below. Tickets and information can be found here.
