British punk rock band Palma Violets stage a return to Philadelphia tonight with a show at Johnny Brenda’s.  The South London-bred four-piece is touring in support of their debut album 180, named for a venue in Lambeth, London where the band got its start.  To get a sense of their raucously wild live show, check out a recap of Palma Violet’s SXSW house party here.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with The Orwells can be found here.  Watch their Beatles-esque video for “Last of the Summer Wine” below.

Tonight’s Concert Picks: Hayes Carll at Sellerville Theater, He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister at North Star Bar, Telekinesis at Johnny Brenda’s

JRM_Gpub_181891_C16_002_300rgb.jpgCountry music staple Hayes Carll will be passing through Sellerville Theater tonight, along with opening act Warren Hood & the Goods. Carll hasn’t released a new record since 2011’s KMAG YOYO, but that hasn’t stopped him from touring as much as he can. The Texan singer/song-writer will take his rootsy country tunes down the east coast before playing a handful of shows in his home state. You never know when an act like this will be coming back around, so don’t miss your chance to see this award-winning country crooner in the lovely Sellersville Theater.
