Thursday 10/20:

British indie-pop artist Jack Garratt will be at Union Transfer. His recent shows include headlining sets at European festivals and a tour with Mumford and Sons. Don’t miss his Philly headlining show on a big dance floor. Tickets are available here.


Umphrey’s McGee‘s first night at The Fillmore out of the three night ordeal in on Thursday. They are going to be jamming out at the best venue to do so in. Their shows are truly enjoyable and full of life, whether you see them for one night or consecutive shows. Get your tickets for individual nights or for all three nights here.


You can’t talk about influential female rockers without talking about Melissa Etheridge. She will be showing off her smokey vocals and effortless aura at Keswick Theatre. She truly is empowering and an icon since the 80’s. You’ll be sure to hear her greatest hits like “I’m The Only One” and “Come to My Window.” Get tickets here.


Arkells from Canada are performing a sold out show at Underground Arts with Foxtrot & The Getdown. The alt rock band has taken on a busy tour after tour schedule and they have yet to slow down. Catch them full-steam in Philly if you’re lucky enough to have gotten tickets ahead of time!


Friday 10/21:

Australian musical mastermind Sia will be at Wells Fargo Center along with AlunaGeorge and Miguel. If that wasn’t a packed enough lineup, the dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler is also joining Sia on stage. Get there early because Temple University’s football game will be going on across the street and the area will be congested. Tickets are available here.


Catfish and the Bottlemen caught everyone’s attention with “Kathleen” in 2014. Their sound is what you want rock to sound like and they do it well. They are back in Philly at Electric Factory on Friday night with The Worm Flints. You can still buy tickets here.


While Umphrey’s McGee rocks out in The Fillmore, Nothing But Thieves will also be making music upstairs at The Foundry for their sold out set. They performed in May at Festival Pier for a Summer Block Party set with lots of energy despite the cold, rainy weather. Their instrumentals cut through the cold air and electrified the crowd for a heated, good time. Try looking for tickets here.


Saturday 10/22:

Saint Motel from LA will be at Union Transfer. We got to see them at Festival Pier last year during Radio 104.5’s Summer Block Party and the crowd loved them. Their brand new album, saintmotelevision, is going to be released the day before their show in Philly. Get tickets here.


Noise-rock band Daughters sold out the upstairs venue at Johnny Brenda’s for Saturday night. Hailing from Rhode Island, the band is back and creating more music together. They anticipate a new album in the near future, and you’ll probably be able to hear some of the new tracks at the show. Enjoy the show, lucky ticket holders!


Sunday 10/23:

Seattle’s The Head and The Heart are performing at The Fillmore for a sold out night with Declan McKenna. Their most recent album Signs of Light was released in September and the lead single “All We Ever Knew” is a true gem. The album makes you want to cuddle up in their music, which caresses you like a warm, fluffy blanket. Try looking for resale tickets here.


LANY from LA is bringing their dreamy sound to the TLA. They had a busy summer including sets at Firefly and Bonnaroo while releasing new tunes left and right. They will be supported by Transviolet. Get tickets here before they sell out!
