Weekend Shots!

Neil Young, R. Kelly, and Passion Pit all played last night. Didn’t make it out to any of them? That’s okay, it’s the weekend and there are a ton of great shows to make up for it! 

It might not be the busiest weekend concert-wise, but there are still a number of artists coming through the city that are definitely worth checking out. On top of that, the shows cover a wide spectrum of genres, ranging from punk, to comedy, to rap. Highlighting the weekend are local-ish boys Title Fight ending their tour at Union Transfer.

Friday, November 30th | Earlier this year, Kingston, PA’s pop punk meets post-hardcore heavyweights Title Fight released their excellent sophomore album Floral Green in September. After playing a few one off shows they embarked on a massive country wide tour celebrating it. Tonight they bring everything to a close when they stop by Union Transfer. Joining them will be Pianos Become The Grave, Tigers Jaw, and Single Mothers for one amazing line up.

Meanwhile on the other side of the musical spectrum, Public Enemy stop my the Liacouras Center on Temple’s campus with Whodini, YoYo, and Biz Markie for a 100.3 The Beat event.

Saturday, December 1st | As the NFL playoff races start heating up, it’s only fitting that The League’s Nick Kroll goes on a string of stand up dates. On Saturday he stops in a city that has absolutely no chance of getting into the playoffs thanks to an extremely disappointing season, Philly! He makes his way to the historic Trocadero Theatre along side Jessi Klein.

Back over at Union Transfer, Tanlines and their infectious tropical dance pop tunes can help you forget that it’s slowly getting colder and colder. They will be teaming up with rising producers Supreme Cuts. If you’re looking to still rage after seeing Title Fight, there’s a huge hardcore matinee show over at The Barbary with nine (!) bands playing. Topping the gigantic list are Strife, Down To Nothing, and Mother Of Mercy.

Sunday, December 2nd | The weekend comes to a laid-back close when Delicate Steve stops by PhilaMOCA with a trio of great up-and-coming bands made up of Banned Books, Bad Braids, and Arc In Round. It’s a great show with some upcoming talent that will be capped off with Delicate Steve’s epic, sprawling instrumental tunes.
