On the heels of her iconic 1998 album The Mis-Education of Lauryn Hill being inducted into Library of Congress this week, the singer / songwriter takes the stage at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside tonight. Unlike last fall’s show at the Electric Factory, which was full band and freewheeling, tonight finds Lauryn in acoustic mode, reminiscent of her Unplugged 2.0 album. Get tickets and information about the show at the XPN Concert Calendar, and watch a performance of “Turn Your Lights Down Low” from last fall below.

DRGN King wraps up it’s month-long winter tour tonight at the Everybody Hits batting cages on Girard Avenue. Last fall, Dom Angelella and the band debuted a new lineup and dropped their sophomore album Paragraph Nights, which showed them taking a big step forward in sound and songwriting. Check out the video for Undertow below, and get info on the show here – it’s guitarist / bassist Lucy Stone’s birthday, so if you go, bring cake.

Bluesy Philly rockers Big Terrible bring their story to a close tonight with a farewell show at MilkBoy. With some of the band moving across country, they released their album Monument – their final batch of recordings – as a free download this week. Listen to it below, read Dylan Otero’s review here and get tickets and info for the show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
