Local indie rockers Spelling Reform continue a month-long residency at Ortlieb’s tonight with help from Ashley Cubbler and Luke Pigott.  Stylizing each show as a tribute to a different band, tonight’s event will honor the songs of Wilco.  Spelling Reform sprung up earlier this year out of several other Philadelphia bands, including The Quelle Source and Monday Appreciation Society.  You can listen to their debut single “Together Apart” below.  More information for the free 21+ show can be found here.

Montreal buzz band Ought return to Philadelphia for a show at Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  After releasing its debut LP More Than Any Other Day in April of this year, the indie rockers won over fans and critics with a stylistic blend of David Byrne, Craig Finn and  Jonathan Richman backed with dynamic instrumentals. Stream and download former XPN Gotta Hear Song of the Week “Habit” below and pick up tickets to the 21+ show here.

Synth-pop artist Com Truise will perform at the First Unitarian Church tonight.  The upstate-New York native released his Wave 1 EP earlier this year, following up his successful 2012 sophomore effort In Decay.  Truise (real name Seth Haley), has said the EP is the first in a series that chronicles “the world’s first Synthetic Astronaut on this journey to a planet—each release represents the next stage in his journey.”  Tickets and information for the show can be found here.  Watch the video for “Subsonic” below.
