Between the ridiculous rain and the Ticketfly “cyber incident” shutdown, it’s been a weird week to be a concertgoing Philadelphian. Don’t let that stop you from getting out and getting to the gig, though. Here are 22 concerts you can see in and around town in the next week, from indie folk true believers The Decemberists to reigning rap king Kendrick Lamar and his Top Dawg Entertainment showcase tour.
Tuesday 6/5: The Regrettes at Everybody Hits
Before they embark on the festival chaos of Firefly later this month, punk rockers The Regrettes will play a smaller gig at the batting cages tonight. A promising new act out of LA, The Regrettes released their debut album Feel Your Feelings Fool! last year and recently made headlines with their cover of “Helpless” from Hamilton. // 9 p.m., $12 – $14, AA // TIX + INFO – Sarah Hojsak
Wednesday 6/6: Manchester Orchestra at The Queen
A trip down to Delaware may be in store Wednesday night to catch a headlining show from Atlanta rockers Manchester Orchestra. The band recently paid tribute to their late collaborator Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit with a cover of “My Backwards Walk.” The show is remarkably not yet sold out, and opening acts Kevin Devine and Half Waif are certainly worth arriving early to see. // 7:30 p.m., $23.50, AA // TIX + INFO – S.H.
