Rock On Philly’s Your Perfect Weekend

This is a big weekend for the music scene here in Philadelphia. Groups like Pentatonix, Childish Gambino, and Rob Delany are all making appearances at major Philadelphia venues like the Electric Factory and the Trocadero. Unfortunately, if you have yet to purchase ticket to these events, you’re out of luck. On a positive note, this weekend is a great chance to visit lesser-known venues throughout the city, so get out there and explore.

South Street Headhouse District is set to kick off their Fourth Friday parties once again beginning at 5pm and ending at 9pm. Local restaurants, bars and businesses will be hosting special deals during their extended hours. Enjoy beer specials at Southwark, or hang out with the guys from Community Bikes and Boards while listening to live music and dining on free burgers and dogs.

Local musicians and graduates of Temple University Mo Lowda and the Humble will be performing at Milkboy Philly tonight. Their light, melodic sound is relaxing with flowing guitar riffs and detailed bass lines, but still has the ability to pack a punch when need be. The show begins at 8:30 with opening band SpareChange.

Saturday-

Your afternoon will commence at Yards Brewing Company at 12 o’clock. If you’ve never visited the Yards’ facilities in Northern Liberties, it’s a great experience. Once finished with the tour, you can relax in their tasting room and sample any one of their 5 craft brews on tap.

 The Fire will be your hub for the evening’s entertain as you unwind to the soulful voice of Jesse Dee. Combining influences from classic soul musicians like Sam Cooke with modern artists such as Amos Lee, Dee’s jazzy guitar chords provide the perfect background for his emotion-filled vocals.

Sunday-

Today marks the end of Philly Wine Week, and throughout city restaurants are offering wine specials beginning at 12pm. Experiment with new tastes or stick to old favorites at eateries like Tria Rittenhouse and Jamonera.

Creep Records will join forces Ortieb’s Lounge tonight to showcase musicians hand-chosen by Creep. Opening up the show will be local folk, indie group Maitland. Toy Soldiers lead singer Ron Gallo will be closing the act with backed Philadelphia-based Satellite Hearts. If you’ve listen to the Toy Soldiers in the past you are probably very pumped for this show. Don’t miss out on either of these talented acts.
