Sunday 12/31: Ben Arnold at The Living Room

Philly singer-songwriter royalty Ben Arnold and his celebrated 48-hour-orchestra are always a hit, and ringing in 2024 with them sounds like an incredible prospect. The Living Room with Arnold and longtime singer-songwriter buddy and XPN fave Jim Boggia sounds like a solid foot to start off the new year. // 8 p.m., $40 and up, AA

Ben Arnold - Everywhere You Go

Sunday 12/31: Speedy Ortiz at MilkBoy

UPDATE: The New Year’s Eve concert with Speedy Ortiz and friends at MilkBoy has been cancelled. We hope to see them in action again soon! Recent Free At Noon guests, and Philadelphia-based indie music stars, Speedy Ortiz plays one of the more enticing New Year’s Eve options at MilkBoy in center city. Read a review and browse a photo gallery from their F@N performance here to know just about what you’re getting into. // 9 p.m., $30, 21+

Speedy Ortiz - Ghostwriter

Sunday 12/31: SNACKTIME at Brooklyn Bowl Philly

Philly loves SNACKTIME. The funky ensemble gave a killer performance for XPN’s Home for the Holidays concert earlier this month, and without a doubt, they’ll throw in some of that holiday material (or at least cheer) in this exciting set. // 9 p.m., $50.80, 21+

SNACKTIME - Home For The Holidays (Full Set)

Sunday 12/31: Lotus at Union Transfer

Philly local jam band of national acclaim, Lotus, plays Union Transfer this New Year’s Eve. Get tickets now before a likely sell-out. // 8 p.m., $45, AA

Lotus - Wax (Live At Red Rocks)

Sunday 12/31: Disco Biscuits at Franklin Music Hall

Another local jam band, The Disco Biscuits, are at Franklin Music Hall for New Year’s Eve, only this group is better suited to those who were assigned “Burlington, VT” on their Spotify Wrapped this year, IYKYK.  Basically, they’re more granola and Garcia-influenced. // 9 p.m., $65, AA

"Basis For A Day" - The Disco Biscuits Live From The Capitol Theatre | 3/25/23 | Relix

Sunday 12/31: Low Cut Connie at Ardmore Music Hall

Low Cut Connie made one of our favorite records of the year, so it’s only appropriate we celebrate all that was great about ’23 with them for New Year’s Eve. We know we’ll see a good many of you in the audience. // 9 p.m., $49, 21+

Low Cut Connie - Are You Gonna Run (Live on World Cafe)

Wednesday, 1/3: Steve Gunn at Solar Myth

Steve Gunn and Solar Myth are twin flames. The guitarist and jazz bar have quite a show for you that evening, and even more exciting programming for ’24. // 8 p.m., $30.90, 21+

Steve Gunn - Other You

Friday 1/5: Froggy at Creep Records

Young punk-rockers Froggy are taking a short break while their bassist Brooke spends a semester in Tokyo. Come out to support their last show for a while with Dissidents, At Night, and Billy, three fellow anarcho-punk groups. // 7 p.m., $12.51, AA

Froggy - "Key Your Car / Livvie Folds" (The Key Studio Sessions)

Friday 1/5: Kikashima at The Grape Room

Saturday 1/6: Candy Volcano at Ardmore Music Hall

Part of Philly Loves Bowie week, Candy Volcano (the sparkling Bowie tribute band) plays at Ardmore Music Hall this Saturday. See a preview of the whole set the day before at our own Free At Noon event. // 8 p.m., $15, 21+

Saturday 1/6: Black Opry Revue at Zoetropolis

Lancaster’s premiere cinema hosts Black Opry member King Jester and his band The Mighty Acorns. While we’ve yet to meet King himself, we have the utmost respect for The Black Opry as talent curators; you won’t want to miss this WXPN Welcomes show.  // 7 p.m., $10, AA
