Indie rock goddess Mitski returns to Philadelphia tonight in another round of touring to support her latest album Puberty 2The singer-songwriter has made her way through several local venues from our own World Cafe to First Unitarian Church to PhilaMOCA and more, and this time around she has graduated to headlining Union Transfer. Mitski’s cutting lyrics and powerful voice driven by electric guitar makes for an intimate live performance in both the quiet moments and in the loud no matter the size of the venue. The night will also be a hometown show for Philly-based opener Half Waif who will be on the road with Mitski for the duration of the tour. For more information on the sold out show, click here.

With a lineup like this, a quick trip to York is definitely worth it. Cayetana, Camp Cope, Worriers, and Sleepy Limbs will be taking over Skid Row Garage (moved from the originally-scheduled venue Chameleon Club) tonight on the second stop of this crew’s quick joint tour. Cayetana will be also touring as Waxahatchee‘s opening act this summer, beginning in Philadelphia on July 14th. For more information on this night of endless punk and rock, check out the XPN Concert Calendar.

Psychedelic rock outfit Boogarins performs tonight at Boot & Saddle, and this is your chance to hear the Brazilian group’s newest record Lá Vem a Morte, a surprise release in June with no lead singles or teasers hinting at an upcoming record. The band described the direction they take in their third album as “noise-brasil, shitty jazz, progressist rock.” For more information on the 21+ show, see the XPN Concert Calendar.
