Tonight, Philly psych rock heroes The War on Drugs will play their first hometown show in two and a half years at the Dell Music Center in support of their fantastic new record, A Deeper Understanding. If that’s not enough reason to get you out to Fairmount Park East on a Thursday night, the concert is a benefit for Connor Barwin’s Make The World Better foundation, which has been rehabbing parks and playground across the city since 2014 — their 2017 project will be announced at the concert tonight — and openers Land of Talk put out a fantastic record this year as well, via Saddle Creek. Tickets to the concert are still available, more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Watch the glorious, Philly-shot video for “Pain” below.

Philly rockers Full Bush were one of our favorites to emerge from this year’s roster of First Time’s The Charm artists; tonight, the gritty garage rockers play at Kung Fu Necktie on a bill with perennial faves The Homophones and more. Tickets and more information can be found here. Listen to them perform “Ray’s” from the No Gatekeepers FTTC comp below.

Speaking of perennial favorites, Graham Nash plays The Sherman Theater in Harrisburg tonight, hot off an appearance at Philadelphia Folk Fest this summer. 50+ years into his career, he still sounds fantastic, as we hear in his recent Tiny Desk Concert below. Tickets for the show are still available; more information here.
