Widowspeak bring their dreamy, 90’s inspired, self-described “cowboy grunge” to Boot & Saddle tonight. Touring behind their recent LP Expect The Best, Widowspeak are known for their nostalgic, narrative-driven tunes which will thrive in the intimate Boot & Saddle setting. Chicago indie rockers Clearance and Philly bedroom grunge outfit Sun Hat also perform. Watch Widowspeak’s video for the shoegazey “Dog” below, and find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews & Orleans Avenue take the jazz tradition to new levels in their funk- and hip-hop-inspired touring act. Touring in support of recent album Parking Lot Symphony, they’ll bring their unique combination of sounds to The Fillmore tonight for what’s sure to be a vibrant and energetic show — get a taste of the group’s upbeat sound in the audio below. Vintage Trouble also plays. Find tickets and more info on the XPN Concert Calendar.

The Wood Brothers — the soulful folk duo of siblings Chris and Oliver if you’re on a first-name basis — are in the middle of a lengthy national tour following the release of Live at the Barn earlier this year. Tonight’s stop at Wilmington’s Grand Opera House also features a special appearance by Cicada Rhythm. The Wood Brothers take influences from blues, folk and roots music and throw in their signature sibling harmonies for a timeless sound — listen below, and find tickets and more info on the XPN Concert Calendar.
