Philadelphia pop-rock four-piece The Bigness hit the stage at Kung Fu Necktie tonight; their debut LP Time Traveler, released last year, combined loud riffage with infectious hooks in a big (hah) way. Tickets and more information on tonight’s 21+ show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.

Philly singer and songwriter Jesse Hale Moore is gearing up for the April 7th release of his debut LP Green End. It’s the solo outing for the keyboardist and multi-instrumental collaborator with Nightlands, Auctioneer and more, and tonight he wraps up his March residency at Bourbon and Branch with Settled Arrows and Dylan Jane opening the show. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar; watch Moore play “Every Time” for his Key Studio Session below.

Ottawa DJ trio A Tribe Called Red is a unique crew, self-fashioning a style called pow wow step through indigenous rhythms and modern EDM. Add in a charged socially and politically conscious outlook through lyrics and samples, and this is one group that will get you fired up while making you dance. Learn more in an interview with The Key’s Anne Hoffman here, and see the band play The Foundry at The Fillmore Philadelphia tonight. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
