Tonight’s Concert Pick: Allison Weiss at Boot and Saddle
Los Angeles punk rock singer-songwriter Allison Weiss returns east tonight for a headlining gig at South Philly’s Boot & Saddle, and based on her latest, the potential for dancing is high. Weiss released New Love on SideOneDummy in 2015, and it launched her sound into the zone of shimmering power-pop anthems; her latest single, “Runaway,” takes that energy and adds a layer of effervescent synths and electronic production in the mix. It’s undeniably reminiscent of later-era Tegan and Sara, which makes sense as it was a co-write collab with Tegan Quinn; watch the video below, and get info on the show at the XPN Concert Calendar. It’s a strong lineup, too, as Weiss will be joined by Augusta Koch of Cayetana playing a solo set, as well as Anomie, the project of Field Mouse’s Rachel Browne.
