Punks meets cabaret tonight at The Trocadero as The World / Inferno Friendship Society takes the stage. The band’s sound is just as huge as its roster, having anywhere from 7 to 13 members playing horns, piano, bass, guitar, drums and more. Their songs are theatrical in nature and it’ll be a treat to see how the band brings them to life in person. For tickets and more info check out the XPN Concert Calendar and listen to the 2014 track “Dolce Far Niente” below.
Philly’s own Nothing is having a record release show for their new album Tired of Tomorrow this evening at Union Transfer. The guys have some heavy ’90s alternative influences and craft really tight downer jams. Tickets and more can be found on the XPN Concert Calendar. Watch the music video for their new song “Vertigo Flowers” below.
Laura Gibson joins David Bazan for a sold out show tonight at Johnny Brenda’s, so kudos to you if you were able to snag a ticket. The songstress came out with a brutally and beautiful personal album this year called Empire Builder. Check out Gibson’s live performance of title track for NPR below.
