Sunday 3/24: Nickel Creek at American Music Theatre

A night of more-than-just-bluegrass seems like an ideal way to start your week. If that’s a statement you agree with, proceed to Lancaster’s American Music Theatre tonight, where folk scene vets Nickel Creek headline, with support from singer-songwriter Monica Martin. Time it correctly and you can warm up for the show by listening to The Folk Show with Ian Zolitor on your drive in.// 7 p.m., $59 and up, AA

Nickel Creek - Strangers

Tuesday 3/26: Ana Tijoux at World Cafe Live

Eclectic Chilean artist Ana Tijoux first caught our attention as a participant in World Cafe Live’s Latin Roots concert series. This week, she returns to the venue with a new album in tow. Vida is an effervescent mix of Latin pop and hip-hop stylings, with guest appearances from De La Soul’s Posdnuos and Argentinian human rights activist Estela de Carlotto. Opening the show is former Philadelphian Laura Lizcano, a jazz-tinged singer-songwriter who has been living and working in New York City for the past four years // 8 p.m., $20 and up, AA

Ana Tijoux - Millonaria (Videoclip Oficial)

Wednesday 3/27: Cosette Gobat at PhilaMOCA

An artist with roots in Philly and London, Cosette Gobat offers a blend of DIY grit and ambitious vision in their work. A singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Gobat just released their latest single, “Shank,” an experimental take on fuzzed-out indie rock that’s not quite grunge, not quite shoegaze, but vibes with both. Arrive early to their PhilaMOCA headliner this Wednesday for a set from ambient artist Donnie Coco. // 8 p.m., $15, AA

Cosette Gobat - Shank

Wednesday 3/27: Raul Malo at Newton Theatre

If you missed out on tickets to his sold-out Sellersville Theater show later this week, head to the Newton Theatre this Wednesday where you can see Mavericks founder Raul Malo headline. As a solo artist, he last released music with last year’s solo instrumental album Say Less; with The Mavericks, he most recently put out the record En Español in 2020. In either case, has catalog stretches back two to three decades and should make for an invigorating show. // 8 p.m., $39 and up, AA

Raul Malo - Solitary Blues (Official Music Video)

Friday 3/29: Arlo Parks at Union Transfer

London singer-songwriter Arlo Parks’ music finds that sweet spot between bedroom pop and stadium-ready pop, allowing her to be vulnerable and commanding in equal measure. Her latest album, My Soft Machine, came out last spring, and landed at number 20 on WXPN’s Best of 2023 MEGA-LIST. She returns to Philly this Friday for her latest headlining gig at Union Transfer. // 8 p.m., $27.50 and up, AA

Arlo Parks - Purple Phase & Devotion (live at NON-COMM 2023)

Friday 3/29: Buzz Zeemer at Ardmore Music Hall

The reunion of Philly power poppers Buzz Zeemer is the comeback nobody really saw coming. But here we are, it’s 2024, and this band that was a staple of the Manayunk rock scene of the 90s and early 00s, is back with a new record called Lost AndFound. The band’s Ardmore show on Friday is on the heels of their Free at Noon appearance earlier in the day. // 8 p.m., $30, 21+

Buzz Zeemer - Break My Heart

Saturday 3/30: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at World Cafe Live

Philly’s Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is a singular band that has essentially been several bands over its career, with several degrees of accessibility. But it’s always been frontperson Alec Ounsworth’s voice at the center, and on 2021’s New Fragility, he’s open and vulnerable more than ever before. The band headlines World Cafe Live’s Music Hall on Saturday, and local faves (and recent Key Studio Session stars) Pine Barons open the show. // 8 p.m., $20 and up, AA
