Thursday 10/27:

The folk rock duo Jamestown Revival, made up of Zach Chance and Jonathan Clay, will be at World Cafe Live upstairs on Thursday night. The show is part of The Wandering Man Tour and is sold out. If you were lucky enough to get tickets, enjoy! Listen to The Education of a Wandering Man before you head out to the show!


Friday 10/28:

Powerhouse is back in Philly at Wells Fargo Center. The hottest names in hip hop are coming for one night. The lineup includes Trey Songz, hometown rapper Meek Mill, Wiz Khalifa, and Jeezy. Get tickets here.


Indie rockers The Strumbellas have proven to Philly that they’ve got what it takes, selling out their show at Underground Arts. In July, they impressed us with their energetic performance at Festival Pier during the Summer Block Party. Their latest album Hope features “Spirits,” which have been the track getting the most airplay this summer.


Temples is a psychedelic rock band from England, and they are performing a sold out show at Johnny Brenda’s. They have a huge following despite their low-key social media presence. They’re only playing a few more shows before they head back over to Europe. If you were lucky and got tickets, have fun!


Colbie Caillat churns out feel-good music like McDonald’s churns out burgers. She’s back, this time with her fiance Justin Young for an acoustic session at Keswick Theatre. She just released The Malibu Sessions that’ll make you wish you were hanging out on the beach. Grab your tickets here for a unique experience.


Saturday 10/29:

Moe. is at The Fillmore on Friday and Saturday night. Get down with the jam band for one or both nights! They’ve been active since the 80’s and won’t stop anytime soon. Buy tickets for the second night here.


If you’re in the mood for country, head over to the Trocadero for Cam‘s show. Her talent won her a Grammy nomination for her album Untamed. Her pop-country style is refreshing and catchy. Don’t miss the chance to see her on her first headlining tour. Tickets are still available here.


Sunday 10/30:

The B-52s are playing at The Fillmore on Sunday night. Their hits like “Love Shack” and “Good Stuff” are still party classics. They have been more active touring in the past year and it’ll be their first time playing this venue. Tickets are available here.


Have you checked out the new Milkboy on South Street yet? If you haven’t, Sunday is a perfect time to do it and also get in on a free show performed by Spring Brooks. Spring Brooks is a blues-singing Philadelphia native. She’s based in New York City now, but is home this weekend for a hometown show. It’s a 21+ show, so make sure all your friends are of permitted age.


Will you be attending any of these shows? Take photos of you in your best Halloween getup and tag us on social media @Rockonphilly!
