Tonight’s Concert Picks: Mickey Hart at The Blockley, Slutever at Kung Fu Necktie, Heyward Howkins at InFusion

Boundary-pushing percussionist Mickey Hart – who, along with Bill Kreutzmann, made up the rhythmic core of The Grateful Dead – visits Philadelphia tonight for a show with his seven-piece ensemble. His latest offering, Mysterium Tremendum, is a cosmic record in the literal sense – it’s music based on sounds emitted by stars and planets. Mickey and his band appear tonight at The Blockley, 3801 Chestnut St., tonight at 9 p.m. Tickets are $30 and available here. Below, watch a live performance of their song “Let There Be Light.”

Returned from their August tour, Philly brat-punk duo Slutever makes an appearance tonight at Kung Fu Necktie, supporting like-minded L.A. fuzz-popper Colleen Green. The 21+ show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $8. Below, listen to “R.I.P. Maple” from Slutever’s Pretend to Be Nice 7″.

The new live music series at Mt. Airy’s InFusion Coffee begins tonight with a show featuring Heyward Howkins, Kettle Pot Black, Alec Gross and Jake Hill. The free concert begins at 8 p.m. and will be recorded by Handsome Lady Records. Below, listen to “Spanish Moss” from Howkins’ Key Studio Session.
