Philadelphia hip-hop collective Hardwork Movement is playing a record release show at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The group’s music boasts intricate jazz-tinged instrumental arrangements and a fierce pride of their deep roots in The City of Brotherly Love. 2016 was a fantastic year for the nine-member group: earlier this year they released their debut LP Good Problems, and a few months later they signed to Chill Moody’s #nicethingsMUSIC imprint. Come help Hardwork Movement celebrate and get a taste of their mixtape Draft Night at their last show of 2016 in Fishtown. Brooklyn-bred Tacuma Bradley’s Unity Band and Philadelphia singer-songwriter Julia Rainer are also on tonight’s bill. Check out the WXPN Concert Calendar for more information on this 21+ show, and check out Hardwork Movement’s performance of “City Bars” during a session with Philadelphia-collective Out of Town Films.


Connecticut emo quartet Sorority Noise headlines tonight at First Unitarian Church. These punk scene faves are playing with fellow out-of-towners Free Throw and Ratboys, with Philadelphia-quartet Clique topping off the bill for the night. Check out lead singer Cameron Boucher performing an acoustic version of “Either Way.” Click here for tickets and more information on this all ages show.

Don’t miss your chance to see the UK-based indie-folk rockers of Daughter perform tonight at the Electric Factory. Their brand of atmospheric alternative rock catapulted them into the public eye with the release of their debut EP His Young Heart in 2011. Vancouver Sleep Clinic is also bringing his vibey electro-rock songs to Philly tonight to open for Daughter. More information can be found at the WXPN Concert Calendar. Below, you can check out the video for Daughter’s “How” off their latest release Not to Disappear.
