Before there was Pure Phase, before there was Screamadelica, there was Loop. The short-lived UK four-piece blended nervy electronic rhythms and towering psychedelic arrangements in a similar manner as Spiritualized and Primal Scream, but disbanded before those artists really took off. Reunited in 2013, Loop is taking a pass through the U.S. this spring and headlining Kung Fu Necktie tonight; get tickets and information on the show at the XPN Concert Calendar, and watch a video for their cover of Suicide’s “Rocket U.S.A” from the 1987 album The World In Your Eyes below.

Philly folk-punk three-piece The Deadeyes aren’t short on inspiration lately – they’ve released three new songs in the past few weeks, with the latest being the upbeat string-laced affair “Why Would She Love Me”. Clocking in at 6 minutes, it’s a bit long for a punk rock song but the violin and the slight melodic shift keep it interesting. Check it out below and catch them live at Kung Fu Necktie this Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Acres of Diamonds’ sound stems from a variety of influences – from Fleetwood Mac to Sonic Youth, the band somehow mixes and mashes different genres into a sound completely their own. Tonight, they’ll be presenting that very sound at Kung Fu Necktie along with bands Elsinore and Vivre Sa Vie. Tonight’s show starts at 8 p.m. and the $8 tickets can be purchased here.

The event costs $15 (that’s not even a buck per band!) and starts at noon and is scheduled to go until midnight at the frat.
