Local indie rockers DRGN King kick-off a nearly two-month long, cross-country tour at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. They also helped to kick-off the 2015 season of Free at Noons, “skipping their day jobs” to rile up the crowd at World Cafe Live back in January. They performed songs from their recent Baltimore Crush LP (which you can learn more about here), as well as tracks taken from their 2013 debut Paragraph Nights. Listen back to the concert here and check out a live-session video for “Undertow” below. Tickets and information for tonight’s show with Field Mouse and Teen Men can be found here.

Seoul Delhi continues a run of shows around town with a support slot at Bourbon & Branch tonight. With five members the band has the ability to cross genres and explore different styles, moving through jazzy rock arrangements and pop-angled songwriting with an ear towards Steely Dan and John Mayer. Check out 2014’s Everything Must Go below and stay tuned for a follow-up record this year. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show can be found here.

Kindred the Family Soul headline World Cafe Live tonight in support of last year’s A Couple Friends record. The Philadelphia-based neo-soul / R&B duo of Fatin Dantzler and Aja Graydon was discovered by Jill Scott in the early 2000s. With five full-lengths under their belt, the pair has earned praise for their acute ability to translate married-with-kids life into poetic and engaging songs. Check out the title track to A Couple Friends below and pick up tickets for tonight’s concert here.
