Hazy midwestern rockers Bonny Dune just released Let There Be Music, their third LP and first for heavy hitting national label ANTI- Records.

Bonny Doon - San Francisco

Sunday 6/18: Melody Gardot at Musikfest Cafe

World class jazz vocalist Melody Gardot got her start in the Philadelphia singer-songwriter scene 15 years ago; now she travels the globe singing Bossa-inspired pop melodies in English, French and Portuguese for captive crowds.

Culture, liberation, history, and celebration are the themes of the African American Museum’s Junteenth Block Party on Monday.

The free event begins at 11 a.m. with the legendary DJ Spinderella on the 1s and 2s, and performances by Sa-Roc and Mister Mann’s Jam Band. // 11 a.m., free, AA

Tuesday 6/20: Robert Glasper at Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia

Pianist, composer, and band leader Robert Glasper has collaborated with a spectrum of folks from Questlove to Yasiin Bey to Herbie Hancock to Jill Scott and Bilal. He’s scored films (including Ava DuVernay’s impactful doc 13th), and he’s released a robust discography under his own name, most recently the third chapter of his ongoing Black Radio series. It’s difficult to pin what Glasper does down to a genre, per se – and would be a disservice to do so – but if you’re into exemplary instrumentation, shimmering melodies and sweet grooves, head to Brooklyn Bowl this Tuesday where Glasper and his band headline. // 8 p.m., $37.50, AA

Robert Glasper - Black Superhero

Tuesday 6/20: Souls of Mischief at World Cafe Live

Souls of Mischief’s iconic song and album 93 ’til Infinity has the year built into the title, meaning that an anniversary run is inevitable every five or ten years. Still, how often to you get to see masters of pre-millennial underground rap in their element? Proceed to World Cafe Live this Tuesday to catch Souls’ 30th anniversary show, with Grand Mantis providing support. // 8 p.m., $25 and up, AA

We recommend this one for anyone interested in the past and future of blues music, OR, for anyone trying to get to know XPoNential Festival ‘23 artists ahead of the festival, as Pratt will join us at Wiggins Park on Saturday, September 23rd. // 7:30 p.m., free, AA

Friday 6/23: Brandee Younger at Solar Myth

It’s possible every show at Solar Myth, the relatively new wine and jazz bar that took the place of Boot & Saddle, is worth seeing. But we feel especially compelled to recommend harpist Brandee Younger, whose latest album Brand New Life is an expansive collection of instrumental sonic-scapes. Younger is also the first black woman to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition as of last year. // 8 p.m., $38, 21+

Mondo Cozmo - "Electrify My Love"

Saturday 6/24: Madison Cunningham at Upper Merion Township – XPN Welcomes

This surprising underplay of a show for Madison Cunningham is not to be missed. The singer-songwriter’s young career is off to a roaring start with acclaimed albums, opening dates for Harry Styles, late night performances, and a Grammy win. 2022’s Revealer is a rebellious and gleeful outlier in the folk music genre, and pure joy to listen to. // 7 p.m., $27, AA

Madison Cunningham: Tiny Desk Concert

Saturday 6/24: No Sailor at Ortlieb’s

The project of Philadelphia’s Kieran Garvey, No Sailor is getting ready to make its full length debut this year with Anchor Broken Free, an album that features collaborations with members of Mo Lowda And The Humble, Ali Awan’s band, and more. It’s nuanced and reflective, in the spirit of Bright Eyes and Peasant, and Garvey brings the band to Ortlieb’s the Saturday to celebrate the release of his debut single “Rock Paper Scissors,” dropping the day before. Arrive early for a set from Dirty Dollhouse, the project of Newtown singer-songwriter Chelsea Mitchell, who just got a label reissue of her most recent two albums on Renaissance Records. (UPDATE: The band informs us that information on the venue website when the concert picks was published was incorrect; Dan The Movie is opening this concert, not Dirty Dollhouse. Additionally, ticket prices are $10, not $13.) // 8:30 p.m., $13, 21+
