Best Weekend Ever: Live Music Makes Philly Rock!

Oh my Disco Biscuits, this weekend is going to be great! From blues rock to country to ambient jams, Philly has it all. So take one of the next few nights and make the most out of the city – go see some awesome artists!


Friday 2/20:

As Nirvana fans may already know, Kurt Cobain would have turned 48 this Friday. To remember this grunge legend’s impact on music, check out Rock On Philly’s Songwriters in the Round at the Tin Angel, which will be full of Cobain themed sweets and music. Tickets are $10 in advance, or $12 at the door, and performers include Nik Greely, Hayley Jane, Devon, and Rock On Philly’s own Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Logue!


Saturday 2/21:

On Saturday you’ll have to decide if you want Southern vocals or transient synths.

Saturday night, Sturgill Simpson will be playing at the Theatre of the Living Arts, presented by WXPN. Simpson has been gaining attention from his 2014 release Metamodern Sounds in Country Music due to its venture into the ideas of human consciousness and spirituality.

If, however, you’d prefer to have your “meta” experiences come in the form of instrumentals rather than lyrics, check out the Disco Biscuits at the Electric Factory. This Philly band is back in town from Thursday through Saturday, so check out their trance fusion jams!

Sunday 2/22:

But don’t cut your weekend short! Head over to the Theatre of the Living Arts on Sunday night to check out Chris Robinson Brotherhood. Chris Robinson, frontman of The Black Crowes, started Chris Robinson Brotherhood while The Black Crowes were on hiatus, and now Robinson, Neal Casal, Adam MacDougall, Mark Dutton, and Tony Leone are coming to Philly with their blues rock vibes (note: Rich Robinson is not in this band, despite its name).

Or if you’d rather dance along to some indie rock music, check out Paper Route at Johnny Brenda’s. You may know some of their songs from 500 Days of Summer or One Tree Hill, but if you want to hear their electronic jams live, head over to Fishtown on Sunday!

This weekend has everything, from performances in memory of iconic artists to meta-experiences and rock-n-roll. But that’s a typical weekend in Philadelphia. The live shows are just one of the reasons that Philly rocks!
