If you’re still catching up to the week with the holiday weekend behind us, here’s a list of shows this weekend to make it easier for you.


Thursday 7/6:

Come out to The Mann to see John Mellencamp perform your favorite folk rock tunes. Sad Clowns & Hillbillies released in April contains many duets with Carlene Carter that are perfectly listened to around a bonfire. Tickets are available here.


Friday 7/7:

The coolest indie rocker Mitski is perfroming at Union Transfer. Her albums received continuous praise and she sells out pretty much every time she comes to Philly, and this time is no different. If you don’t have tickets for the show yet, look for resale tickets here.



Saturday 7/8:

Alex G from Philly at Union Transfer with Japanese Breakfast. After catching the eyes of the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine, Alex G became known quickly across the country. Japanese Breakfast aka Michelle Zauner’s solo act is also a Philly musician. Tickets can be purchased here.


Wolf Alice from London is back in Philly for another packed show, this time at the sold out Foundry. Wolf Alice is going strong since their 2016 Grammy nomination. They released “Don’t Delete The Kisses” yesterday and it is the bomb diggity. Look for resale tickets here.


If you want to see rappers, go see Rakim and Ghostface Killah at Electric Factory. These legendary rappers from legendary groups are touring together and their Philly stop will no doubt be one of the highly anticipated ones. Tickets are still available here.



Sunday 7/9:

Indie rockers Mother Mother from Canada is performing at the Foundry. They released No Culture in February, and it has pop influences in their rock sound that are appealing. This is their 6th album in their 10 years of being active and the amount of music they put out is impressive. Tickets can be purchased here or at the door.


One of America’s favorite singer-songwriter/guitarist James Taylor is coming back to Wells Fargo Center. If you’ve got a friend, bring them with you for a night of classics. His music never gets old and are played and covered eternally. Tickets are available here.
