Weekend Music Picks: Where We’d Be Partying If We Didn’t Have To Work All Weekend.

February 28, 2013

We’ll be super busy this weekend prepping the next print issue of JUMP, which will start hitting the streets in about three weeks. So, we won’t be going too crazy this weekend … but that doesn’t mean you can’t. Here are a few really great things to experience.


Ryan Tennis and the Clubhouse Band, Up the Chain, The Beanstalk Library and Carl Anderson at Milkboy

We recently heard that Ryan Tennis throws music shows at his home in South Philly and in the summertime, they are outside in his courtyard. Dang. Kind of wish it was summer. For now, catch him at Milkboy.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Foxygen and Wampire at The Church

Unknown Mortal Orchestra is the combination of New Zealand indie music and Portland, well, Portlandianess.

Brandy and Gogo Morrow at the TLA

Kobe Bryant’s date to his prom is known for her acting as much as her music but she still has a powerful voice. We caught her at Penn’s Landing last summer and she was fantastic.

Grandchildren, Son Step and Buried Beds

This is a great Philly lineup with orchestral indie pop rockers Grandchildren as the headliner. And it’s only $8. This show makes a great one-two punch with Saturday’s Man Man show at Union Transfer.


Man Man, Murder By Death and Northern Arms at Union Transfer

Philly’s experimental indie rockers always throw an amazing party.

The Orwells, The Kingston Springs and The Districts at North Star Bar

The Orwells rock hard and with soul, and their sound feels so much older than them – they are all 19. Oh, and we’re giving away tickets!

Erykah Badu at the Electric Factory

The Grammy Award winning neo-soul singer recorded some of her greatest stuff in Philly. This would be an amazing show to catch if the tickets weren’t $50 (plus $11 processing fees). Holy cow.

Kensington Royals fundraiser at Everybody Hits Batting Cages

The publisher of JUMP plays baseball with a bunch of artists and musicians, most of whom can barely afford their rent in Fishtown/Kensington. So, they’re having a little dance party with DJ KURTLIFE (formerly of Plastic Little) to raise funds. Come dance, hit baseballs in a brand new batting facility and drink with some really, really awesome people.


Crybaby, Caseracer, Fox Reactions, Warm Needles and Martin at Hausu for a benefit for PAWS

A West Philly house show featuring angst-ridden bands that are mostly local, and it raises money for Philly’s largest no-kill shelter, PAWS? This is a no-brainer. Throw a few extra bucks in the cup for the puppies.
