Last weekend just kicked off a pretty nice stretched of about two months with tons of good musicians playing in Philadelphia. This weekend is no exception.
First up, although it’s not the weekend, Particle has chosen Philadelphia as the perfect launchpad for their Spring tour and it all goes down Wednesday night at Underground Arts – one of the coolest music venues in the entire city. Check out a little preview we’ve got goin’ on here. And don’t forget to read the interview Anna did with Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz.
Bluegrass more your thing? Perfect. Thursday night, Ardmore Music Hall brings to you The Travelin’ McCourys featuring Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident. Bluegrass maybe not your thing but you’re still thinking about it? Welp, the Travelin’ McCourys version of “Price Tag” may help change your mind. This is going be a super cool night out in the ‘burbs.
Might as well find a place to stay out in Ardmore because you’ll wanna head back out to AMH for Friday night as the brand new DRKWAV stops by. John Medeski (The Word, Medeski Martin & Wood, and like everything), Adam Deitch (Lettuce, Break Science, Pretty Lights Live Band, and pretty much everything) and Skerik team up to bring you some jazz funk like you’ve never heard before.
After DRKWAV wraps up, head into the city and on over to Penn’s Landing where Soundgarden Hall is hosting electronic powerhouse Adventure Club. If you have any interest in electronic music and haven’t seen Adventure Club live yet, you’re truly missing out. If you haven’t grabbed tickets yet, do it now because I promise you there will not be any available at the door.
You have two options Saturday night. First up, is Chill Moody’s birthday party at the TLA. I’m not sure what else I really need to say about this. If you like hip hop and/or you like supporting local musicians and/or you like birthdays and/or parties… this is your go-to.
Or, if you’ve been swooning over the Irish crooning of Hozier for the last few months, you’ll want to be at the Electric Factory. Although, if this is your first time learning that Hozier will be in town, you’re probably shit out of luck because tickets have been sold out for months.
