Bakithi Kumalo's Graceland Experience

Tuesday 7/12: Sixteen Jackies at Liberty Point

Local gigs at Philly’s newest outdoor concert venue continue Tuesday when Sixteen Jackies play Liberty Point on the Delaware River. The band has one foot in glam, one foot in a vintage horror aesthetic, and their live shows are always a blast. They’ll be joined by post-Vernes indie project Number One Lovers, and 20% of proceeds will go towards reproductive rights efforts through the National Network of Abortion Funds. // 7 p.m., $15, AA

Sixteen Jackies - Just Kids

Wednesday 7/13: Foxing at World Cafe Live

Impressionistic post-emo outfit Foxing is bringing their fourth LP Draw Down the Moon to Philly this Wednesday at World Cafe Live. Having explored more experimental avenues on previous releases, the St. Louis band recentered on Moon, pursuing a bolder and broadly accessible modern rock sound that will doubtless shake the walls of an intimate space like World Cafe Live’s music hall. // $18, 8 p.m., AA

Foxing - Draw Down The Moon

Wednesday 7/13: CJ Mills and Sophie Coran at City Winery

It’s a double-header of top-notch Philly singer-songwriters at City Winery’s Loft this Wednesday. Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and loop artist CJ Mills released her latest textured bop “Try” last year, and it compliments her previous cuts like the groove-oriented “Focused” terrifically; Sophie Coran’s 2021 album Space strikes a balance between classic jazz-informed songwriting and shimmering future pop. // 8 p.m., $15, 21+

CJ Mills - Live at Sunflower Philly
Sophie Coran - Space

Wednesday 7/13: Anika Pyle at Johnny Brenda’s

Punk-rooted singer-songwriter Anika Pyle is leaving her beloved South Philadelphia this summer to head out west and resettle in her native Denver, but she’s playing one last show as a Philadelphian and east coast resident this Wednesday, when she opens for Kevin Devine at Johnny Brenda’s. Pyle released the terrific songs-and-poetry collection Wild River last year, and her warmth, compassion, and positive outlook will be missed in the local music community. // 8 p.m., $22, 21+

Anika Pyle - Prayer for Lonely People

Wednesday 7/13: Bikini Kill at Franklin Music Hall

(UPDATE: Bikini Kill’s Philadelphia concert has been postponed due to a positive COVID test in the band’s camp. Information on a rescheduled date will be coming soon.) Riot grrrl originators Bikini Kill bring their long-awaited reunion tour to Philadelphia this Wednesday for a headlining show at Franklin Music Hall. Frontperson Kathleen Hanna has been a force on the indie music scene for three decades — she’s also led Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin, and brought insightful takes to countless music documentaries — but seeing her return to the propulsive feminist punk band that started it all is a rare treat. // 8 p.m., $45, AA

Bikini Kill - Rebel Girl (live)

Thursday 7/14: Death Cab for Cutie at Riverfront Park

Long-running modern rock outfit Death Cab For Cutie is releasing its latest album, Asphalt Meadows, in September, and though the official tour in support of it doesn’t begin until fall, they’re warming up fans with a summer run that comes to Central PA this week. Seeing Ben Gibbard and co at Harrisburg University’s stellar concert series at Riverfront Park sounds good; getting an early taste of new material sounds better. // 8 p.m., $50, AA

Death Cab for Cutie - Here to Forever (live)

Thursday 7/14: The Warhawks and The Mary Veils at The Oval XP

There are ample arguments for catching a free concert on the Ben Franklin Parkway this week, beginning with this double shot of trippy hard rock on Thursday.

The Mary Veils - Bone Blossom Green

Friday 7/15: LEV at The Royal

In the early 20-teens, singer-songwriter Josh Levandoski and his band The New Motels brought spirited, Squeeze-inspired indie rock to venues all around Philly. The recent batch of singles under the name LEV is the first music the songwriter has released since that time, and their heady and introspective tones give the project a mature feeling in the line of mid-period Wilco and Radiohead. But don’t get too cozy; driving rhythms and catchy riffs of a song like “Napalm of Late 95” will bring on your feet if you let them. LEV plays new-ish Glenside venue The Royal on Friday night. // 8 p.m., $12, AA

LEV - Napalm of Late 95

Friday 7/15: Femi Kuti and The Positive Force at The Queen

Festival favorite Femi Kuti and The Positive Force makes a couple regional stops this week.

Cosmic Guilt - Live at NONCOMM 2022

Saturday 7/16: The Bouncing Souls at The Stone Pony

Jersey’s own punk rock true believers The Bouncing Souls have two regional gigs this week, and Millersville’s Phantom Power will be a terrifically hot and sweaty place to catch their live energy — still strong after 30 years — on Thursday night. But there’s something uniquely special about the prospect of seeing a beloved Jersey band on the Jersey shore on a Saturday night in July, so if The Stone Pony summer stage sounds right to you, go with the flow and get ready to scream along to “The Ballad of Johnny X” and beyond with a couple thousand of your new best friends. // 4 p.m., $45, AA

Saturday 7/16: Queen of Jeans at The Oval XP

Philly indie pop crew Queen of Jeans emerged from lockdown with a batch of remarkable new songs recorded with Will Yip and released on his Memory Music label as the Hiding In Place EP. Cuts like “Why Hide” go hard and mix wonderfully with the band’s back-catalog, so much so that another trip to The Oval XP is in order this week. // 8 p.m., free, AA

Queen of Jeans - Why Hide
