This week, our concert agenda includes indie rock institutions as well as left-of-center art popsters, arena shows to DIY shows, rock and roll and folk and Afrobeat and everything in between. Here are 19 concerts you can see in and around Philadelphia over the next seven days.
Monday 10/15: Kali Uchis at TLA
R&B singer Kali Uchis spent six years of building her name through mixtapes, loosie singles, and collabs with names like Tyler, The Creator and Daniel Caesar. This April, her long-awaited debut LP, Isolation, made its way into the world, and it finds her looking back on the toxic relationships and friendships of her teenage years from a older/wiser perspective. On Monday, Kali Uchis headlines the TLA on South Street on her In Your Dreams tour, with groove-minded New York singer-songwriter Gabriel Garzon Montano opening the show. // 8 p.m., $34.50 – $40, AA // TIX + INFO – J.V.
Monday 10/15: Molly Burch at Johnny Brenda’s
Born in Los Angeles, schooled in Asheville, and currently residing in Austin, singer-songwriter Molly Burch makes music infused with the sounds of a half century ago — the Laurel Canyon folk-pop of the 70s, the kitchy bubblegum tunes of the Phil Spector 60s. Her sophomore album, First Flower, was released on Captured Tracks last Friday, and she headlines Johnny Brenda’s on Monday. Olden Yolk opens the show. // 8 p.m., $12, 21+ // TIX + INFO – J.V.
