Jazz legend Herbie Hancock takes the stage at the Kimmel Center tonight for what’s sure to be a sweeping musical journey — the pianist and composer has 41 studio albums to pull from, after all. The groundbreaking musician got his start back in the 50s and 60s and is known for his ever-changing innovative style. Hancock is currently in the midst of an extensive world tour and reportedly prepping for a new album. Get a taste of Hancock’s current touring tunes via the NPR video below, and find tickets and more information on tonight’s show on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Following a move across the country and the release of visual EP Saint Mary of the MoodsPouty returns to Philly for a co-headlining slot at Everybody Hits alongside Idle Bloom. Rachel Gagliardi’s West Coast influences are certainly welcome on the aesthetically stunning EP, filled with soft and dreamy punk rock. Ursula and Amanda X will also play. Watch and listen below, and find tickets and more information via R5.

Influential songwriter Daniel Johnston makes a stop at the Tower Theater tonight as part of the Hi, How Are You tour, and the show couldn’t be more stacked if it tried. The evening kicks off with a special pre-show screening of Sundance award-winning documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston, and features local favorites The Districts and Modern Baseball acting as Johnston’s backing band.
