Philly / Boston punk outfit The Kominas are charged-up social critics wrapped in catchy hooks and high energy. Their most recent full length, 2015’s Stereotype, is essential listening; in the years since, they’ve released a string of thought provoking and funny music videos tackling institutional racism and xenophobia. Tonight, they headline Johnny Brenda’s in Fishtown; watch the “See Something Say Something” video below and get tickets and more info at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Excitement is high for Sorority Noise’s headlining show tonight at Union Transfer; and rightfully so, their new album You’re Not As ____ As You Yhink is stellar. But friends, if you like good music, get there early, since opener Shannen Moser will knock you sideways. Rooted in aching melodies and communal singalongs of folk, her 2017 outing Oh, My Heart (recently rereleased on vinyl via Lame-O Records) comes alive onstage with strings and xylophone, an electric rise and fall and Moser’s powerful voice at the center. Tickets and more info can be found here.
