Weekend Music Picks: Lots Of Philly Talent (And The Most Popular DJ In The World).

February 21, 2013

Some of these shows are pricey and we’re betting they will still sell out, or come close to it. Who know what that means? But there is something for everyone this weekend, from old school punk and good old Philly hip-hop to rockabilly sounds and the most popular DJ in the world.


Reagan Youth, Dust Angel, Taco Joint and Wayward Ones at Kung Fu Necktie

Punk legends Reagan Youth at tiny little Kung Fu Necktie? This will be loud, aggressive and massively fun (even without Dave Insurgent, RIP).

Adam & Dave’s Bloodline, St. James and The Apostles, Sleeping Bag, Arrah and the Ferns at Johnny Brenda’s

This is the record release show for Adam & Dave’s Bloodline, and there are a pair of great Philly acts in support (and another band from Bloomington).

Wale, Mont Brown, Pace-O Beats, Black Cobain and Freeway at the TLA

Here’s the thing: whenever there is a big Philly hip-hop show, loads of Philly talent show up and perform, even if they aren’t on the lineup. So go to this show.


Tiesto at the Liacouras Center

Attend this show and then close your eyes for a moment … you’ll feel like your in Ibiza surrounded by swaying Europeans. Er, yeah. Honestly, we’re not sure who would pay $49 to see this dude but that video right there? Yeah, 47 million people have viewed it. Anyway.

Willy Moon, TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb and Lily & the Parlour Tricks at Underground Arts

Willy Moon has slicked back hair, snazzy suits, a rockabilly attitude and a song on an iPod commercial. TJ Kong and The Atomic Bomb make you feel like you should be drinking bourbon. Straight. And we’re giving away tickets to the show.

SGT SASS record release show at Kung Fu Necktie

This edition of the Sugar Town series celebrates the release of SGT Sass’ solo EPs. Labeled as queer-rap, to us, it just sounds like goodtime music with a killer beat.


Bridge and Tunnel, Kite Party, Ma Jolie and Address at The Fire

Kind of excited to see Kite Party. Their last album was called Baseball Season. Love that name. And the sounds are smooth.
