You can’t tell us that there’s nothing going on this week — even if you don’t count the Firefly Music Festival (which you should totally count), there are more artists moving through the Philly region that we can pin down. Massive arena shows like U2 and Harry Styles to modest DIY gigs like Cold Fronts and Eternal Summers, the spectrum is huge. Here are 27 concerts you can see in and around Philly this week.
Thursday 6/14: Eternal Summers at Boot & Saddle
Virginia dream pop trio Eternal Summers returns to town Thursday night following the release of their new album Every Day It Feels Like I’m Dying… last month. It’s the band’s fifth full-length, and steps away from their previous, more abstract work by grounding their songs in real-world issues. // 8 p.m., $12 – $15, 21+ // TIX + INFO – Sarah Hojsak
Thursday 6/14: Cold Fronts at Everybody Hits
After a steady stream of singles and the release of their new record Fantasy Du Jour, Philly’s Cold Fronts return to play the kind of DIY space they’ve been inhabiting throughout the project’s eight year span. Hockey Dad headlines the gig and Mt. Eddy is also on the bill. // 9 p.m., $13 – $15, AA // TIX + INFO – S.H.
Thursday 6/14: Los Lonely Boys at Sellersville Theater

Friday 6/15: M. Ward at Musikfest Café
There’s no better combo than M. Ward and his acoustic guitar. The She & Him guitarist can truly create such emotionally raw records and with more than nine full-length solo albums under his belt, he is no stranger to the industry or the stage. This Friday M.Ward will be performing in Bethlehem at Musikfest Café with opening acts Kat Wright and Maggie Clifford // 7p.m., $28, AA // TIX + INFO – S.V.
Friday 6/15: Harry Styles at Wells Fargo Center
Former member of British boyband One Direction Harry Style has stolen the hearts of many throughout the years with his exceptional voice and …..well his good looks. In 2017, he released his solo debut album titled Harry Style, showcasing a new side of the English artist apart from the group. Currently on tour, Styles will be hitting Wells Fargo Center this Friday with special guest Kacey Musgraves. Go snag some tix before they’re all gone. // 8 p.m., $29.50 – $99.50, AA // TIX + INFO – S.V.
Friday 6/15: Beth Orton at World Café Live
English singer-songwriter Beth Orton has been turning heads with his signature “folktronica” style since 1999. Her music utilizes various electronic elements, acoustic guitar and her beautiful vocals to create a unique twist to folk music. What I love most about Orton is her sensual voice that brings out such raw emotions. That’s why she is at the top of the list of XPN favorites and not to mention, she’ll be performing at World Café Live this Friday! // 8 p.m., $25 – $ 37, AA // TIX + INFO – S.V.
Friday 6/15: Grizzly Bear at Wellmont Theater
Emerging in 2004, the Brooklyn indie band Grizzly Bear’s music is a fusion of rock, pop and psychedelic electronica. Their fifth album Painted Ruins brought a collection of songs that stimulated the mind with its twirling synth lines and memorizing melodies. The band will be performing at Wellmont Theater in Jersey this friday with the support of electronic artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith // 8 p.m., $35, AA // TIX + INFO – S.V.
Friday 6/15: Dave Matthews Band at BB&T Pavilion
The best part about summer time is outdoor concerts at the BB&T Pavillion and this friday, XPN’s longtime favorites Dave Matthews Band will be performing at the Camden venue. This is the band that gave us the heart-hitting track “Crash Into Me”’ and the feel-good anthem “Ants March”. The Charlottesville-bred group has been around since 1991 and has given so many amazing performances. So grab your friends and family and head over to Jersey to see these living legends live. // 8 p.m., $45 – $115, AA // TIX + INFO – S.V.
