So… yesterday was a pretty weird day in music. What’s usually kind of like Christmas just seemed more like… I don’t know… Memorial Day? But without the BBQ? Senate subcommittee hearings about songwriter royalties, $7.3 million (or $7.4 million, depending on what you read) lawsuits over copyright infringement, not toooooo many great album releases, and a Mysteryland lineup that, though I like it, disappointed many fans of electronic music.

It’s okay though. It’s all in the past. And at least here in Philly, we’ve got a glorious weekend of music to look forward to!

Friday

Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad @ Underground Arts

You have some choices here. But if you’re ready for the warmer weather, for some fun in the sun, some cut off jean shorts, sunglasses, flip flops, and a Corona, check out GPGDS at Underground Arts.

Excision @ The Electric Factory

Or… if you’re on pretty much the exact opposite end of the spectrum and want the most bass in your face experience you can get, Excision is bringing 150,000 watts of sound as Philly gets one last look at his Executioner video and lighting installation which is, in fact, insane. Honestly, if electronic music is your thing and you wanna see some dope production, Electric Factory is the moves.

G. Love & Special Sauce @ TLA *EDITOR’S PICK*

While those are certainly great choices, you’ll see me at the TLA this weekend. Philly boy G. Love and his Special Sauce are hitting up South Street for a two night run at the intimate venue. With his original lineup, and his most refreshing album in years, Sugar, the atmosphere will be nothing short of overwhelming welcoming excitement. Tickets are still available, but will certainly be gone soon so get ’em now by clicking here!

Saturday 

G. Love & Special Sauce @ TLA *EDITOR’S PICK*

Yeah… I’ll be there again. And you should be, too. Trust me. I wouldn’t steer you wrong.

Sunday

Steve Kimock & Friends @ Ardmore Music Hall

A wise man once said, “Never miss a Sunday show.” I’m pretty sure when he said it, he was talking about this coming Sunday night at the Ardmore Music Hall when Steve Kimock brings members of Furthur, ALO, and Jerry Garcia’s band to pay tribute to the man himself, Jerry Garcia. This is going to be one of those nights you don’t forget any time soon.
