Friday 7/21: Dave Matthews Band at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion

Legendary folk rock outfit Dave Matthews Band released their 10th studio album, Walk Around the Moon, back in May. The record focused on themes of impermanence, liberation, and the gentler side of rock music, taking the band ever further away from the desire-filled college rock of Crash. With Dave’s ever evolving perspective on songwriting and a number of lineup changes since 2008, including Jeff Coffin, Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds, walking around the moon is a fitting analogy, as both Dave and the band are worlds away from their former selves. The 56 year old is spry as ever however, still touring and selling out shows around the globe with his captivating blend of jazz and rock and roll. Dave Matthews Band performs at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion this Friday (and returns on Saturday). // 7:30 p.m., $49.50 and up, AA

Dave Matthews Band - Walk Around The Moon

Friday 7/21: Nanna at Union Transfer

Atmospheric folk artist, and lead singer of Of Monsters And Men, Nanna comes to Union Transfer on Friday as part of her “Disaster Master” tour. Her debut album, How To Start A Garden came from a desire to branch out and experiment with her own style and voice, separate from her lead role in the “Little Talks” group. Sitting down with Consequence, Nanna  explained the thought process behind the record, saying that she was inspired by old Godzilla movies, being a hermit kid who loved poetry, and how meaningful it was to release a song in her native Icelandic language. The former culminated in the hit single “Godzilla” which encapsulates the entire range of emotions throughout How To Start A Garden, and is sure to be a standout moment during her performance in Philly. // 8 p.m., $31, AA


NANNA - Full Set (NON-COMM 2023)

Friday 7/21: Killer Mike at Franklin Music Hall

Rapper, actor, and social justice activist Killer Mike dropped his first solo record in 11 years, Michael, this June. While it’s flown a bit under the radar, the project was a catharsis of sorts for the hip-hop star, deeply personal and relatable, touching on topics of parenthood and religion while still doubling down on bars about social reform. Mike was awarded Billboard’s first-ever Change Maker Award in 2020, and has continued to champion the ideas from his ceremonial speech, “You are artists and your goal should be to express the very reality around you in the very most beautiful or ugliest of ways you see fit.” Killer Mike promises to shake the room at Franklin Music Hall on Friday. // 8:30 p.m., $35, AA


Killer Mike - Don't Let The Devil (ft. El-P)

Saturday 7/22: Velvet Rouge at Johnny Brenda’s

If you don’t already know, Velvet Rouge, led by The Voice alum Gina Zo, is an indie quartet whose words and sounds rival that of Stevie Nicks and Florence + The Machine, two of Zo’s biggest influences. Not to mention her voice, which brings a unique energy to the group’s sound all on its own. Embracing her newly disclosed queer identity, Zo shares a new side of herself in the band’s latest track “Faking It”, in which she discusses taking on the challenge of being oneself to the fullest extent. Catch Velvet Rouge at Johnny Brenda’s this week, as well as at this year’s XPoNential Fest on Sunday, September 24th. // 9 p.m., $12, 21+

Since then, he’s maintained a consistent position in the country music world, releasing his latest album The Misfit in 2022.
