Philly via Doylestown golden age indie rockers Commonwealth Choir hit up the batting cages at Everybody Hits tonight for their final Philly show of 2015. Word is the guys will preview a bunch of songs from the new record they’re about to start recording and will have some other surprises in the mix. Local dudes Roof Doctor and Night Windows open; more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.

Philly rock four-piece Arc Divers headline Johnny Brenda’s tonight. Formerly known simply as Divers, the band released its record Floating Bodies earlier this year and promptly had to change its name – presumably because of a Portland indie rock band with the same name. Awkwardness aside, the record rocks, powered by Emily Zeitlyn’s charging vocals and the raw playing of Ross Bellenoit, Tom Bendel and Todd Erk. More info on tonight’s show can be found here.

Guiding lights of Philly’s underground metal scene, Crypt Sermon plays Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The band released its epic LP Out of the Garden earlier this year, and it’s progressive psychedelic tones won acclaim from NPR Music. More information on my the show can be found here.
