Tin Bird Choir describes themselves as “organic, free-range, Pennsylvania barn rock.” And quite frankly, that’s pretty spot on. The folky four-piece is performing tonight at Steel City Coffeehouse, but they won’t be alone. Joining the band will be A Fistful of Sugar, Sweetbriar Rose and Kicking Down Doors who are coming together to perform a benefit show for Phoenixville Area Community Services, or PACS. Tonight’s show starts at 7:30 p.m. and the $14 can be purchased here.

First up tonight is the incredible double header of Belle and Sebastian and Yo La Tengo.  The Glasgow band Belle and Sebastian have been making beautiful indie pop since the 90s and they’re releasing an album of rarities and B-sides this August.  But before they do that, they’re going on a huge tour, including a stop at The Mann Center.  And joining them is another legendary group Yo La Tengo.  Bouncing from genre to genre and covering numerous songs along the way, Yo La Tengo have been making music their way since the 80s and just released an incredible new album, Fade, in January.  Tonight you can catch both groups at The Mann Center.
