Tonight, The Fire in Northern Liberties hosts emo-pop outfit Grayling. What started out as the independent project of frontwoman Lexi Campion has now turned into a four-person full time band. Grayling’s recent debut EP, Everything That Burns, dropped back in April. Tonight they play with Honeytiger, Zack Daniel, The Disgruntled Sherpa Project, and Foxster. If your music taste lies anywhere along the super versatile spectrum of indie/alternative music then be sure to get a ticket for this 21+ show that will have something for everyone. Check out Grayling’s studio session with The Key from earlier this week here.
Philly welcomes back Omaha born indie-dance band The Faint tonight at The Trocadero. These punk rockers have been active since 1995, and have been host to an ever-changing roster of band members, with Todd Fink and Clark Baechle consistently at the center. This fall, The Faint released a retrospective collection called CAPSULE:1999-2016 via Saddle Creek Records. Supporting the band will be fellow indie dance bands Gang of Four and Pictureplane.

Tonight at the TLA, experimental electronic outfit Crystal Castles will take the stage for an all ages show. The group, which was formed in Toronto, is known for chaotic live performances fueled by their rave-like energy and frequent use of anxiety-inducing distortion.
