Alex G brings a spring tour home to Union Transfer tonight. The Havertown native has been supporting last year’s Domino Records debut Beach Music in a big way, criss-crossing the country, booking international festivals and now headlining his largest Philly show to date. Pretty cool stuff for a band that got its start in the Temple house show scene. Watch the video for “Mud” below and pick up tickets to the all-ages show with Porches and Your Friend here.

LA punk band Bleached bring their new Welcome the Worms LP to Johnny Brenda’s. It’s the trio’s second full-length, following up 2013’s Ride Your Heart with their sunny take on Joan Jett rock. Watch the video for “Wednesday Night Melody” below and pick up tickets for the 21+ show here.

Open Mike Eagle headlines Kung Fu Necktie. The Chicago native has been rap battling and freestyling since his college days, honing in on a style that has been dubbed “art rap.” Hella Personal Film Festival is Eagle’s latest release, a collaboration with UK producer Paul White. Check out a behind-the-scenes documentary about the album below and pick up tickets for the 21+ show here.
