Here are 12 concerts to see in the next seven days, all around Philly. For tickets and more information, head to WXPN’s Concerts and Events page.

1) Sunday 10/29 Mudhoney at Underground Arts

Grunge originators Mudhoney are celebrating their 35th year and touring their 11th studio album, Plastic Eternity. See them in Philly tonight at Underground Arts. // 8 p.m., $25, 21+

Mudhoney - Move Under

2) Monday 10/30: J. Roddy Walston at City Winery Philadelphia

RVA rocker J. Roddy Walston is known for getting down and dirty with his longtime band The Business. What will his solo piano tour entail? We’re guessing all the volume with even more focus, but go to City Winery Monday to find out. // 7:30 p.m., $25 and up, AA

you know me better (j roddy walston solo)

3) Monday 10/30: S.G. Goodman at Central Market York

The soul-stirring rock of this WXPN Artist to Watch hits the region twice this week. Kentucky’s S.G. Goodman plays Monday night at York Central Market, and if you aren’t local to Central PA — or if you find yourself inspired after seeing her there — you can also see her Wednesday the 1st of November at Underground Arts. // 8 p.m., $17, AA

S.G. Goodman - Tiny Desk Concert

4) Tuesday 10/31: Japanese Breakfast at The Fillmore Philadelphia

The last we saw Philly-rooted pop stars Japanese Breakfast, they were playing a stunning Dell Center Show in support of both 2021’s acclaimed Jubilee album and Connor Barwin’s Make The World Better Foundation. There’s much excitement about their return to Philly at The Fillmore on Halloween — it’s technically sold out, but if you rock with LiveNation’s verified resale, you can probably get in — and even though their originally-announced gig-mates Hop Along had to step off the lineup, buzzing indie duo Crooks And Nannies have a live show that packs a punch, and they’ll leave an impression on you with their opening set. // 8 p.m., $94 and up (verified resale), AA

Japanese Breakfast - Be Sweet

5) Tuesday 10/31: Slow Pulp at The Foundry

Midwestern indie outfit Slow Pulp make contemplative rock in the vein of Indigo De Souza and Snail Mail. It’s catchy but with immense character and if you’re looking for a more low-key way to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve, their gig at The Foundry is your best bet. // 8 p.m., $10, AA

Slow Pulp - Slugs

6) Tuesday 10/31: Kesha at The Met Philly

Conversely, you may wish to celebrate Halloween in the most maximal way possible. Proceed to The Met in that case, where a headlining show from high-octane pop star Kesha is sure to tear the roof off. // 8 p.m., $72 and up (verified resale), AA

Kesha - Only Love Can Save Us Now

7) Friday 11/3: The Paper Kites at World Cafe Live

Melbourne folk rock outfit The Paper Kites just released their sixth studio album At The Roadhouse. It doesn’t directly have anything to do with the Roadhouse of the David Lynch universe, though the band’s music wouldn’t be out of place there. It’ll also sound stellar at World Cafe Live on Friday. // 8 p.m., $30, AA

The Paper Kites - Bloom

8) Friday 11/3: Queen of Jeans at The First Unitarian Church

Philly indie pop-rock four-piece Queen Of Jeans just shared “Karaoke,” a terrific new song and their first in over a year. Hear them play it (and perhaps more new tunes) in their first hometown show in a minute, this Friday at The Church with Into It. Over It. // 7 p.m., $20, AA

Queen of Jeans - Karaoke

9) Friday 11/3: Soraia at MilkBoy

With jet black hair and a generally badass demeanor, Zou Zou Monsiour and her bandmates in Philly band Soraia channel Joan Jett, The Runaways, and primal punk rock and roll. They’ve got a new record on the way and you can get a taste of their new music when they return to MilkBoy this Friday.// 8:30 p.m., $15, 21+

Soraia - Black Magic Woman (Official Music Video)

10) Friday 11/3 and Saturday 11/4: The Hooters at The Keswick

Philly rock faves The Hooters had a new wave / ska underbelly on many of their biggest hits, and they lean into the style big time on their exemplary 2023 album Rocking And Swing. It’s a project that sounds like a band getting loose, having fun, and reconnecting both with one another and with the music that made them want to be a band in the first place. // 8 p.m., $59.50 and up, AA

The Hooters - Why Won't You Call Me Back

11) Saturday 11/4: Carbon Leaf at World Cafe Live

From Celtic rock to rootsy Americana, the two-plus decades running Virginia band Carbon Leaf is still an adventurous and engaging live act. Check out their chips this Saturday at World Cafe Live’s Music Hall. // 8 p.m., $30 and up, AA

Life Less Ordinary (Acoustic) (from Carbon Leaf Cottage - Songs By The Sea)

12) Saturday 11/4: Spelling Reform at Ortlieb’s

Bookish Philly indie rock outfit Spelling Reform are back on the scene and in the process of rolling out a new record, they’re first since the pre-pandemic era. Hear them test out their new songs Saturday at Ortlieb’s.// 8 p.m., $12, 21+
