Combine Raising Your Pulse at KFN March 13

Though you just lost an hour from your weekend, you can still make the most of it by coming out tonight to Kung Fu Necktie. Genre-splicing art-punks Combine provide unrelenting, spastic yet calculated drum bursts that grab hold of you, while guitars slash and stab in an unforgiving nature. The result are tunes that have a ominous presence, raising your pulse with each measure. Laying the groundwork for the evening, Combine will also be joined by shoegaze-y alt rockers Blacksalt, slow-burning LA psych-rock duo Jerkagram, and headliners Throbbing Chakra, which features Lantern's Zachary Fairbrother. All is not lost yet. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ (Photo by Diego Muya) - H.M. Kauffman





Addie Pray Not Leaving the Door Open at All Night Diner March 12

Addie Pray, a.k.a. Carmen Perry, of Ohio’s Sports catches listeners on her narrative line, with songs that provide an intimate fly on the wall perspective - not leaving the door open, rather transplanting you into her line of sight. Capturing intimacy in a realistic, relatable scale, she adapts it to life’s expected adventures and setbacks. What initially appears to be a simple picture gathers deeper meaning through binding details, à la Waxahatchee and Free Cake For Every Creature. Brandon Can’t Dance develop a twisting experimental pop paradigm. It's one with a constantly shifting position, engaging with it’s uprooted tones that range from fireside acoustics to eerie wave-rockers. The captivating lo-fi of Emily Yacina (who has collaborated with Alex G) is a sound you’ll feel instantly close to. The lineup is rounded into form by the hushed poetic folk of Yours Are The Only Ears.

Weekend Warrior, March 11 - March 13

Thin Lips are heading off on tour in support of their 7-inch EP release, Divorce Year (Seagreen Records), and will be hosting a hometown send-off show this Saturday night at Everybody Hits. The album showcases the band’s spry, hooky tunes that seem to indulge in equal parts Aughts pop-punk anthems and heavy Jawbreaker-style 90’s riff punk, which doesn’t make the naming of their forthcoming LP, Riff Hard (due out May 20 via Lame-O Records), that surprising. (You can check out the new music video for their latest single "Never Again" below.) Fellow slaves to the riff The Max Levine Ensemble will also be performing on the bill tomorrow, flaunting their lively, inexhaustible, sometimes political pop punk that tips the cap to turn of the millennium bands like Rise Against. Worriers will be on hand with a more subdued, pensive approach to the genre. And don’t miss Bellows, who will start the night on an intimate tone with delicately composed bedroom jams. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $8-$10, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

New Track: "Longer Now" - PINKWASH

The noise-rattling punk tandem of Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine, otherwise known as PINKWASH, has just shared “Longer Now,” the first single off their debut LP. The much-anticipated Collective Sigh is scheduled for release on May 13 via Don Giovanni Records. “Longer Now” utilizes Doubek's emotively-charged howling vocals, combing forces with the heavy riff/percussion scenario, keeping you on alert while embracing a strong, smashing wave.

OhBree Berning Down the House at Lavender Town March 11

This evening at Lavender Town, a smattering of Philly acts, who have all been feeling the Bern, are converging for a night of music, with all funds going to the Bernie Sanders campaign. Tonight is highlighted by OhBree, who will also be celebrating the release of their new EP Feed Me Poison (which you can now stream HERE). The quirk-pop orchestrations that Oh Bree have been not-so-quietly-crafting come to a zany, precise, and satisfying head on their latest album. Similar to Philly’s Man Man, the eccentric and lighthearted music is often a sugar coating for the more sinister stories below. The band plays around with what sounds like every noise-making object that they can find in the studio, but the innovative songwriting by Andrew Scott grounds every tune, allowing their playfulness to be highlighted without distracting too much from the music. Also playing tonight are Mumblr, who just had a fundraiser of their own for a new van last week at Lavender Town. I haven’t heard anything about a sweet new ride yet so don’t be shy about passing some cash their way as well. The bill is filled out by Howlish, Fidel SUN, Dead and Birthday Ponies. There is also Day 2 happening on Saturday at Girard Hall. Show your support, and get some serious Bern for your buck! Lavender Town, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 6pm, $10, All Ages (Photo by Emily Dubin) - Adam G.
