Five Upcoming Music Events You Won’t See Lumped Together Anywhere Else.

June 15, 2012

Seriously … what a great town. Massive diversity in terms of musical offerings. Here are five shows that Intern Bree did not mention yesterday:

1. Eat the Turnbuckle (above) is a collection of Philly hardcore veterans who perform a wrestling-themed show. The loud, aggressive music will make your heart race but even if hardcore isn’t your thing, their live show is the definition of spectacle. Tonight, they’ll bring down the M Room. It’s something to see. Details are here.

2. Kyo Daiko (right), a Japanese-style taiko drumming crew, will perform for free today at the Settlement Music School on Wynnefield Avenue. Taiko drummers perform in unison, with intricate choreography and ear-piercing yelps. The fast paced shows are a mixture of tribal rhythms and pure showmanship. Details are here (the show begins at 6:30).

3. The Jeffrey Palace will hold a block party Saturday in South Kensington, with a stellar lineup:

11-11:30: Los Ombres
11:45-12:15: The Lawsuits
12:30-1:00: Cherokee Red
1:15-1:45: Sun Cinema
2:00-2:30: Soldiers of Soul
2:45-3:15: Gold Crowns
3:30-4:00: Lesbians
4:15- 4:45: Shorty Boy Boy
5:00- 5:30: Fishdoctor(NYC)
5:45-6:15: Night Panther
6:30-7:00 Mountjoy

See here for details about the free show.

4. Sol Village is a New York-based neo-soul/R&B singer/songwriter showcase but they’re bringing the show to Philly this Saturday. Nikki Jean, Yummy Bingham, The Kitchen, Lolah Brown, U City, Ryan Corbin and Bunji are scheduled to perform at The Blockley. Details are here.

5. Honestly, we just enjoy running the above photo of Creepoid. But they’re also playing a great psych-rock show on Monday at the Level Room with Bardo Pond and Japanese  band Suishou No Fune. Details are here.
