Tonight’s Concert Picks: Neil Finn at Keswick Theater, Work Drugs at Boot & Saddle, Meet the Loopers at The M Room and more

New Zealand-based musical mainstay Neil Finn has gone more experimental than ever before. The singer/songwriter (and Crowded House co-founder) released his latest album, Dizzy Heights in February, and the album features just a little bit of everything. Sounds of airplanes flying overhead, whistling, synthesizers and groovy guitar lines are interwoven in a somehow cohesive 11-song LP. Though the musician’s known for his unique sound, his latest takes it to a new level. Finn plays tonight at Keswick Theater with openers Midlake who performed a Free at Noon today. Tonight’s show starts at 7 p.m. and the $35 tickets can be purchased here.

The Quarterly Project releases fall charity compilation (listening party & concert at The Fire 11/21)

The Quarterly Project recently released their Fall compilation, featuring local artists like Pocket, Cruiser, These Polar Opposites, and Molly Rhythm. The bands cover every spectrum of the Philly music scene, from rock n roll to emo, and you can’t help but be impressed. Not only does this project support the diversity of Philly’s music scene, but it works to help young Philadelphians develop the skills to be musicians. The proceeds from this compilation album (and the concert) go to local nonprofit Rock to the Future, which provides free music education to Philadelphia youth.

On Thursday November 21, The Quarterly will hold their fall listening party and concert at The Fire. The eclectic mix of Philadelphia musicians is sure to put on a good show, with music ranging from Family Vacation‘s nostalgic indie rock to Brian Fitzy‘s improvisational electronic funk. Also expect raw sets from the ambient yet powerful Last Full Measure and emo rockers When Ships Collide. Each of these bands have released killer new material in the past year, so make sure to check them out even if you cannot make it to the show.

Find tickets and information to the listening party and concert here. Stream the fall compilation below and pick it up on Bandcamp.
