And that’s because the programming is top notch, including Friday’s synthy indie show with Marco Benevento. The New York composer plays Philly, too, in a Saturday gig at Underground arts, but Lehigh Valley and North Jersey, it’s on you to get out and take advantage of this beautiful setting. Benevento’s latest is a groovy electronic mix of retro sounds and psychedelia. // 8 p.m., $20, 18+

Friday 3/10: GA-20 at Arden Gild Hall
