The Juliana Hatfield Three headline the first of two nights at Boot & Saddle tonight. Returning to the original line-up from the early nineties, the band released its first record in over two decades with this year’s Whatever, My Love. The current tour, though, is billed as a celebration of the 21st anniversary of Become What You Are and has the group performing their seminal debut in its entirety. Pick up tickets for tonight’s 21+ show here (tomorrow night is already sold-out) and watch their video for the classic “Spin the Bottle” below.

Justin Townes Earle brings his new record Absent Fathers to the Sellersville Theater tonight. The record followed very quickly on the heels of last year’s Single Mothers, an LP that was stalled for several months over label disputes. Both of the resulting efforts honor Earle’s father Steve and idol Van Zandt, while cementing Justin as a modern-day songwriter that knows the ins and outs of perseverance. Tickets and information for the concert with Gil Landry can be found here; watch him perform “My Baby Drives” for World Cafe below.

Mitski opens for Hundred Waters tonight at Union Transfer. The solo project of Brooklynite Mitski Miyawaki released its latest record last November, the Simpsons– referencing Bury Me at Makeout Creek. It’s an indie-rock gem stacked with songs about lacking funds, missing mouths and struggling to do the things you want to do. Watch her perform “First Love / Late Spring” below and pick up tickets for the show here.
