Girlpool headline Union Transfer tonight with support from friends Ian Sweet and Lexie. The duo of Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad expanded their minimalist sound to include drums on last month’s Powerplant, a move that emphasizes their always-resonant sharing of vulnerability with even more dynamics. Watch “It Gets More Blue” below and pick up tickets for the all-ages show here.
Over at The Fillmore, perennial favorites Dawes return in support of last year’s We’re All Gonna Die, which also got a live release in February. As XPN listeners know, the band always puts on a stand out show filled with Jackson Browne-esque story-songs, lighthearted humor, and big Americana rock band hooks. Tickets and information for An Evening With Dawes can be found here. Watch “Roll With the Punches” below.
Last summer Zeek Burse performed with Ladysmith Black Mambazo at The Mann, wowing the summertime crowd with his warm vocals on a Russian folk song called “The Larch Tree.” Tonight, the Philly native gives a performance at Warmdaddy’s that will likely highlight he recent album XXII.
