Indie singer-songwriter/guitar virtuoso Steve Gunn is playing a record release show at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The New York musician and his band are releasing Time Off on June 25th, not long after finishing up a tour with Kurt Vile. Gunn has a classic, old-soul sound to his music, along with a lot of solo acoustic jamming out – all of which you can hear in his recent studio session with The Key. Below, check out Gunn performing in Philly earlier this year. Tonight’s show will also include performances by Endless Boogie and Psalmships. Tickets and information can be found here.
Americana/Folk-rock outfit The Felice Brothers will be performing at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe. Their last album, God Bless You Amigo, is available only online. It is an effort to raise some money after the band’s home and equipment were almost destroyed in a hurricane, among other unfortunate events you can read about on the album page. Below, you can listen to a song off of the new album called “Lincoln Continental.” Tickets and information can be found here.
Another album release party – local poppy fuzz rock outfit Cough Cool is dropping their album 29 this weekend and is celebrating with a show at the Kung Fu Necktie! The album is already streaming on soundcloud, which you can check out below. Tickets are to be purchased at the door, but you can find some more information here.Cough Cool, Johnny Brenda's, Kung Fu Necktie, Mauch Chunk Opera House, Steve Gunn, The Felice Brothers
