Tuesday 3/13: No Thank You at The Barbary

No Thank You is playing a hometown show Tuesday night with Beasthead and Bronco at the Barbary. The band is poetically intimate and honest with their music which allows their listeners to connect on a deeper level. The punk trio has been hard at work with their current tour and upcoming sophomore album titled All It Takes To Ruin It All, which is set to drop April 6th. The LP is a raw collection of tracks that centers around the ideas of healing from past personal wounds, relief from the pain, and looking forward to the future.  // 8:00 p.m., $10, 21+ // TIX + INFOShannon Vo

Tuesday 3/13: Hello Shark at World Cafe Live

From Vermont to Philadelphia, Lincoln Halloran, known as Hello Shark, can do no wrong with its simple-yet-poetic storylines and melodic innocences. When you listen to his 2016 LP Delicate or 2017’s LP Break Arms, you can feel and hear the emotional rawness that is projecting from his voice. Hello Shark is set to perform Tuesday at World Cafe Live, sharing the stage with Fred Bean and Soft Idiot.  // 8:00 p.m., Free, AA // TIX + INFOS.V.

Wednesday 3/14: Kristin Hersh at Boot and Saddle

Kristin Hersh has been in the the game since she was only fourteen, from being the frontwoman for Throwing Muses to a solo artist. Just over a year ago, she released a double album titled Wyatt at the Coyote Palace and recently, a music video titled “Wonderland”. The mother of four is obviously not resting anytime soon. She is currently on tour, and you can spend an evening with Kristin Hersh as well as Nashville’s Grant Lee Phillips at Boot and Saddle this Wednesday, March 14.  // 8:30 p.m., $22, 21+ // TIX + INFOS.V.

Wednesday 3/14: The Menzingers at The Queen

East Coast faves The Menzingers keep it real. The shaggy punk band has already released five full length albums with the most recent one being After The Party in 2017. The LP is filled with head banging jams, and which bring you back to the good ole’ Warped Tour days. See The Menzingers wreck the stage this Wednesday at The Queen in Wilmington, Delaware.  // 8:00 p.m., $22, 21+ // TIX + INFOS.V.

Wednesday 3/14: Abi Reimold at Space 1026

Philly artist Abi Reimold’s music is dark yet so pure. With her angelic vocals, you can hear every bit of raw emotion that comes from her pipes. She doesn’t just perform her music; she lives every bit of it. Abi Reimold is coming to Space 1026 this Wednesday, March 14th. The show will be headlined by Jack, who is touring to support his album Alchemical Rounds, along with Abi Reimold, Kenny 3, and indie-rockers dreambeaches.  // 7:00 p.m., $5, AA // TIX + INFOS.V.

Wednesday 3/14: Godspeed You! Black Emperor at Union Transfer

Post-rock legends Godspeed You! Black Emperor hit town this Wednesday, touring behind their 2017 LP Luciferian Towers. The Canadian group garnered a cult-like following throughout the 2000’s with the likes of their massive instrumentation and stunning live shows. Performing with a throng of members on stage and casting visuals to accompany the wall of sound, GY!BE’s live show is an all-immersive experience. // 8:00 p.m., $25, AA // TIX + INFOJack Madden
