It’s never a good idea to judge a band by its name — except in the case of Free Cake for Every Creature, the rare instance of a band name whose charming and playful name happens to perfectly mirror their music. With lyrics like “For you I’d steal a 50-cent machine / and we won’t need money or anything / cause we’ll have gumballs,” the Philly-via-Upstate New York four-piece emit a delighful lo-fi pop vibe that’s reminiscent of Double Double Whammy label-mate Frankie Cosmos. They’re gearing up to release their newest record Talking Quietly of Anything With You in April, and tonight you can find them at the First Unitarian Church. Grab tickets to the show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Iconic Philly DJ Jerry Blavat (and host of the Geator’s Rock ‘N’ Roll R&B Express on WXPN) will be performing tonight at the Kimmel Center, in a special Salute to Street Corner Harmony. The performance will feature a number of guests, including The Demensions, The Dub, and Eugene Pitt. Don’t miss the man Ed Rendell once called “as ‘Philadelphia’ as the cheesesteak” in concert. Tickets available at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Hip-hop trio Naughty by Nature play the TLA tonight. The New Jersey natives are a throwback to the old-school 1990s, but they’re still going strong over 25 years later — the group released their most recent album, Anthem Inc., in 2011 and now they’re embarking on a 25th anniversary tour. Grab tickets over at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Port Arthur at Bourbon and Branch (8 p.m., 21+. $8-$10)
