Today’s Concert Picks: Chris Harford, Oh! Pears, Toy Soldiers at JB’s; Kevin Killen at North Star; Gemini Wolf at Silk City
Local orchestral rock favorites Oh! Pears will play their last hometown show before frontman Corey Duncan ships on out to the west coast. His band — along with soul rockers Toy Soldiers — will open for Princeton-based singer, songwriter and visual artist Chris Harford and his Band of Changes (which features members of Ween and Dr. Dog). Doors at Johnny Brenda’s open at 8 and the show starts at 9; tickets to the 21+ event are available for $10 here. Below, stream “The Sounding of the Earth” from Oh! Pears European Tour release.
Philly americana artist Kevin Killen will serenade the night away with a free show at the North Star Bar Victorian Dining Room. He’ll be opening for Elkins Park artist Christopher Michael, who has played for a number of Philly area hard-indie bands but has recently taken the folky road himself. The 21+ show is free and starts at 8pm (more information is available on the Facebook event page). Below, stream Christopher Michael’s “Home.”
Finally, glitchy Philly psych-pop duo Gemini Wolf will rock Silk City tonight with local psych-rock team A Study In Terror. Get your fill of psyched-out vibes presented by BITBY, who are also hosting DJs to round out the set. Admission to the 21+ event is $7; show starts at 9. Below, stream Gemini Wolf’s “Thirst” from their album Infinite Sand Dunes.
