The weather may suck but your Thursday night doesn’t have to. Blink-182 is back in action in Bethlehem for a sold out show with Hawthorne Heights. Their new album drops July 1st, and you’ll most likely hear their latest tracks early at the show, including “Bored To Death.” If you weren’t lucky enough to grab tickets before they quickly sold out, they’ll be back in the area at Camden later this summer.

Joywave rocked out several times in Philly before, and they’re back this time at Union Transfer. Lead singer Daniel Armbruster is entertaining and humorous. They will be joined by Transviolet and Kopps. Tickets here.

Friday 6/24:

Austalian indie band Boy & Bear is at Underground Arts with Hannah Georgas. Boy & Bear’s latest album Limit of Love was released in October of 2015, and it’s simplicity and authentic musicianship speak highly of themselves. Hannah Georgas’ was in Philly last time with Sara Bareilles on her Little Black Dress Tour. Get tickets here.

Johnny Lang will be bringing his bluesy tunes to Sugarhouse Casino. 2 decades into his career and he’s still hitting it high on the charts, with his 2013 album charting number one on Billboard Blues. Bring your gospel loving friends and enjoy the night! Tickets are for sale here.

Musical mastermind Paul Simon will be at the Mann Center. His lifetime of success means a lifetime’s archive of good music. The man is humble and adorable and you’ll definitely want to catch him while he’s here. Tickets are available from the Mann here.
