We’re super thrilled with Sadness is a Gesture, the debut record from Philly electropop artist Aphra, which came out last week via Bay Area upstart label Inherent Sounds. There’s a limited edition clear vinyl version on the way, but tonight Aphra celebrates the moving collection of songs about heartache, addiction and finding inner strength tonight at The Barbary. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.

There’s a stacked International Women’s Day festival going on at Underground Arts tonight, with a solid collection of artists from across the genre spectrum; electronic pop artist Little Strike, rapper Ivy Sole (read our interview with her from yesterday) as well as buzzing emo songwriter Harmony Woods and retro rockers Louie Louie in the headlining slot, alongside Queen of Jeans. Best of all, the gig benefits Crossroads Women’s Center, a community based self-help space in Germantown. Tickets and more information can be found here.

York pop-punk four-piece The Ok-Ok’s caught our attention with their 2015 self-titled LP, a blend of classic rock and roll riffs with a Go Gos / Best Coast sense of humor. Tonight, the band –Sadie Swartz on vocals, Isaac Swartz on guitar, Christopher Ridolfi on drums and Andrew Sterner on bass opens the Turnover show at Lancaster’s Chameleon Club. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
