Led by feminist activist and vocalist Emma Goldman, Downtown Boys is a hard-hitting punk-rock group hailing from Providence, Rhode Island. The group controls the stage tonight at Underground Arts for the next stop on tour in support of its 2017 record Cost of Living, released this summer on Sub Pop. Listen to it below and check out the show by picking up tickets here.

Philly DIY collective Grandchildren comes to Boot & Saddle tonight to play a benefit concert for Philly youth arts organizations Big Picture Alliance and Aspiring Young Artists. Grandchildren has its roots but their work reflects all the positive aspects of psychedelic folk, electronica, and care-free indie. Check out this concert for a good cause and purchase tickets here.

Los Angeles via Scotland via the world singer and songwriter Bishop Briggs brings her ethereal electro-rock stylings to The Fillmore tonight, opening for Bleachers. On the strength of the soulful earworm “River” and a self-titled EP on Island Records, Briggs has had a wild ride these past two years.
