Psychedelic Philly doomsayers Creepoid celebrate the release of their new LP Cemetery Highrise Slum tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. The album is heavy and expansive, the strongest distillation to date of the hard-touring band’s live energy. Tickets and more information on the show can be foudn at the XPN Concert Calendar.

Local hip-hop faves Ground Up bring the party to Underground Arts tonight. The trio’s latest project, 1711, is named for the street address of the Temple University house they lived in when the band formed in the mid-aughts. The mixtape is due to drop in the fall, and we’re expecting to hear a few goodies from it tonight. Tickets and info for the show can be found here.

Olds Sleeper is the evocative lo-fi folk project of Lancaster’s Heath Harden. Its latest LP, Cowgirl, blends rustic Americana with a gruff Tom Waitsy delivery and raw, Lou Barlow-esque recording. It’s kind of in the same vein Daughn Gibson, except recorded on an 8-track. (Check out “Sunset on You” below to see what I mean.) Tonight Old Sleeper plays the Re:Create Arts Initiative in Lebanon; tickets and more information can be found at the show’s Facebook event page.
