XPN welcomes Ingrid Michaelson’s continuing tour in support of Human Again, released back in January, to World Cafe Live at The Queen. The New York singer-songwriter will be performing acoustic on this leg of the tour, tickets to the all-ages show range from $31 to $41 and are available here. Below, watch a live video of the song “Ghosts” from Human Again, recorded in Laurel Canyon earlier this year.
Tonight we celebrate the variety of music that is being held in Philadelphia, both by genre and locale. The Fishtown indie / chamber fivesome, Turning Violet Violet released their record Double Cure in May and we were lucky enough to do a Key Studio Session with them around the same time. The album was recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Jon Low and Brian McTear at Miner Street Recording. John Vettese, writing about the record, said: “The album’s thundering percussion and thrilling crescendos create a immediate sense of urgency, heightened by lyrics that long for simpler times in the face of an uncertain future. Meanwhile, the playing and arrangements sound like exactly what they are: the work of five skilled and studied musicians who are just as epic performing live as they are on record.” They play tonight with The Deer Tracks and Nouela at 9:15 PM at Johnny Brenda’s, tickets are $10 and the show is 21+.
Singer-songwriter Greg Laswell plays with Elizabeth & The Catapult at World Cafe Live Upstairs at 8PM. His new compilation of songs is entitled Landline. Go here to purchase tickets to the all ages show. Below, listen to the song “Landline” that he did with Ingrid Michaelson for the album
