Symphony for a Broken Orchestra is a city-wide effort to support music education in Philadelphia’s public schools — tonight, hundreds of musicians will come together at the 23rd Street Armory to perform an original composition on the school district’s broken, battered and worn-out instruments, with goal of getting all fixable instruments repaired and back into the schools, which lack the funds to fix them. You may have caught NPR’s feature on the effort a few days ago — read that here, and find more information on Symphony for a Broken Orchestra on their website.

Philadelphia-born songwriter Todd Rundgren released his first solo album in 1973, and is now on his 27th — White Knight is the newest album from Rundgren, and he’s bringing the tour back to his hometown region with a show at the Keswick Theatre tonight. Listen to “Chance For Us,” which features Bobby Strickland and fellow Philly icon Daryl Hall, below and find tickets and more information on tonight’s show on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Spoon is responsible for The Key’s number 10 album of the year, and tonight you can catch the sounds of Hot Thoughts live at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg. White Reaper also play. If you haven’t heard the new album, the band’s ninth installment in their ever-evolving discography, listen to it here.
