Tonight’s Concert Pick: NOT The Swellers at The Barbary (because it is cancelled)

Paper Masques
Paper Masques perform tonight at Johnny Brenda's

We’d be lying if we said that we didn’t have tonight’s The Swellers, Everyone Everywhere, Bright And Early, and Still Rings True show at The Barbary circled on our calendar as our pick for today. Unfortunately, R5 Productions tweeted the bad news last night: “Tomorrow’s show with THE SWELLERS has been canceled. They apparently can not get out. Now you can all watch The Eagles game.” So, what else is on the calendar? Philadelphia-based “punk-drenched chamber-folk” collective Paper Masques—which will go into the studio early next year to record its second album—performs with former Philly residents Homesick Elephant and NJ natives Attic Dancers at Johnny Brenda’s (9 p.m., 21+, $10); meanwhile, over at The Fire, Grey Sky Turn performs with Something Black, Tim Malley, and Chris Munden (9 p.m., 21+, 7 p.m.)
