Is it an album or a collection of short stories? It’s hard to say, but Andy Shauf‘s 2016 album The Party captured the imagination of listeners last year. Lyrically, each song is a vignette of a different guest at a house party, and musically it collects lush orchestrations in the vein of Jon Brion, Elliott Smith and, naturally, The Beatles. After packing the house at Boot and Saddle in the fall, Shauf headlines Union Transfer tonight. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, watch his appearance on NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series.

Philly rockers Ill Fated Natives headline a gig tonight at The Fire. Rooted in blues rock revival, the power trio is also dappled in expansive psychedelia, as our John Morrison pointed out last week, reminiscent of Blur Cheer, Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Get a taste in their “2 + 2” video below, and find tickets and more information on the show here.

Also tonight, Harmony Woods celebrates their debut LP at JJs Diner in West Philly. We’re kind of excited about this record, if you haven’t gathered, and you can learn more about the band in our extensive interview that ran yesterday. More information on the show can be found here.
