Recent Philly-via-Vegas transplant Shamir closes out a busy year of touring with a hometown show at the Church tonight, following the release of their new album Revelations last month. Shamir’s vibrant and introspective pop songs touch on everything from queer identity to being a millennial, all with a blunt and witty honesty. Read The Key’s interview with Shamir here, watch the video for “90’s Kids” below and find more information on tonight’s show on the XPN Concert Calendar.

In the mood for a festive show this holiday season? Philly indie pop collective Work Drugs are staging their 7th annual Holiday Spectacle tonight at Boot & Saddle. The band released their latest album Flaunt The Imperfection in August and were last seen at Philly Music Fest in September. The City And Horses and The Chairman Dances also play tonight’s show. Listen to “Magic In The Night” below and find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.


Montreal singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk has made a few stops at World Cafe Live this year — he played a Free at Noon before the release of his latest album Twin Solitude in the winter, came back in the spring to headline, and wraps up a busy year with another headlining show tonight. Little Scream also plays. Revisit Vollebekk’s Free at Noon performance here, watch the video for “Elegy” below and find tickets and more information on tonight’s show on the XPN Concert Calendar.
