Tonight’s Concert Pick: Lily Mae at World Cafe Live
Philadelphia singer-songwriter Lily Mae is bringing her acoustic stylings to World Cafe Live tonight opening for Yael Naim. She released her sophomore record, Closer, on November 11th and its acoustic ballads you fall in love with this folk-pop all over again. If you’re a frequent reader of The Key you’ll know where to go for tickets and show info, but if you’re not just click here. You can also check out the title track for her new LP below.
Local experimental pop outfit Son Step is playing at Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The four-piece draws comparisons to Animal Collective, and that isn’t entirely inaccurate: they produce music that’s ambient in nature, but there’s something distinct about Son Step that you really can’t get a grasp on until you see them live. Lucky for you, they’ll be in Fishtown tonight. Go to the WXPN Concert Calendar to find more information and tickets for the show. Have a listen to their latest record natural majique below. (UPDATE: This show has been cancelled. But you can still listen to the album below anyway.)
