Indie electro pop band Skyes play North Star Bar tonight. The band got its start in Philadelphia before moving to Brooklyn, where they released a debut self-titled EP in 2013. The record jumps from MGMT-esque synth pop with 90s alt singer-songwriter vocals to a blend of industrial rock and pop, keeping listeners on their toes. Check out EP opener “Secondhander” below and pick up tickets for the 21+ show here.

Denison Witmer opens for William Fitzsimmons at World Cafe Live. The Lancaster, PA native released his latest, self-titled record in 2013, which featured guest appearances by his current tourmate and Sufjan Stevens. Witmer is beloved for his introspective and moving compositions, knowing the perfect equation of simplicity and earworm hooks.

The Sundrop Music Festival continues at The Fire tonight, with a line-up that includes Little Strike. It’s the project of Philadelphia artist Tamar Dart, who collages electronic samples, live guitar playing and visual displays for an immersive experience.
