Tonight’s Concert Picks: mewithoutYou at The Depot, Vietnam at Milkboy, Marc Broussard at Sellersville Theater

mwYUpper Darby-bred art-rock five piece mewithoutYou released their latest album, Ten Stories, last year, blending their heavier early sound with the orchestrations of their later albums.  The record features quirky tales of life and death mostly told through tales of anthropomorphic animals surrounding the wreck of a circus train.  The band is still on tour in support of the album, and will play at The Depot in York tonight with Philly’s Auctioneer.  Check out the Space Odyssey-inspired video for their song “All Circles” below and click here for ticket information.

WXPN Welcomes Louisiana-born singer-songwriter Marc Broussard to the Sellersville Theater. Don’t know what “Bayou Soul” music sounds like? Neither do we—but tonight might be a good night to find out. Marc Broussard performs at 8 p.m. at Sellersville Theater; tickets to the show are $29.50.

Meanwhile, a pair of local bands (and one-out-town one) perform over at Kung Fu Necktie. The indie-rock quartet The Mechanicals has been billed as “a mix of Brand New, The Gaslight Anthem and even Explosions In The Sky.” You can judge the accuracy of that statement for yourself here. Chapel Hill, NC, psych-rock outfit Minor Stars and the Philly-based ambient/shoegaze trio Controlled Storms open. The Mechanicals perform with Minor Stars and Controlled Storms at 8 p.m. at Kung Fu Necktie; tickets to the 21+ show are $6.
