New Zealand indie pop cult faves The Bats play Johnny Brenda’s tonight. Going strong for over 30 years, the band is making a somewhat rare Philly appearance tonight to showcase songs from its most recent release, 2011′s Free All The Monsters, the band’s eighth LP. Opening are Philly indie troopers Royal Shoals; the 21+ begins at 8 p.m., tickets and information can be found here. Also be on the lookout for a free afterparty at R.U.B.A. featuring live appearances from Catnaps, Rugburn and DJ sets from members of Literature and A Sunny Day in Glasgow. Below, watch the music video for “Simpletons” from The Bats’ Free All the Monsters.
