Sunday 6/16: The Lone Bellow at Upper Merion Township Building Park

Vocal harmonies and rousing roots anthems are the winning formula The Lone Bellow has delivered for the past decade and change. Still on the road in support of 2022’s Love Songs For Losers, the band comes to Upper Merion Township Building Park tonight to play the long-running Concerts Under The Stars series. // 6 p.m., $30, AA – John Vettese

Sunday 6/16: Pink Siifu at MilkBoy

Genre-chameleon Pink Siifu brings a crew of abstract hip-hop upstarts to MilkBoy tonight. Of course, with Pink Siifu, it’s impossible to predict if you’re in for a night of lo-fi soul or blown-out noise-rap, but whatever Siifu serves up this time, it’ll be good. Joining him for a stacked night of experimental music that promises to be loud is Turich Benjy, HiTech, DJ BlacknMyles, and Ted Kamal. // 7:30 p.m., $34.25 – Claire Brown

Pink Siifu - GTA'! (ncomplete) prod. iiye

Sunday 6/16: SNACKTIME at Long’s Park Amphitheater

Philly’s favorite brass band is on tour this summer, with a stop this Sunday, June 16th at Long’s Park Amphitheater in Lancaster. The seven-piece band spans genres, with funk, soul, rock, jazz and hip-hop influences in their music. Regardless of what they play, it’s SNACKTIME’s infectious energy that’s made them skyrocket to success. After an appearance on the Parkway this July 4th for the Welcome America Festival, SNACKTIME will be touring the Western US with Portugal. The Man. // 7:30 p.m., FREE, AA – Maeve Zeleniak

Monday 6/17: Kurt Vile and the Violators at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center

Touring his 2023 EP Back to Moon Beach, Kurt Vile plays tonight at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center. His orbit of Philadelphia continues Tuesday at Wilmington’s The Queen, and Thursday down the shore at Anchor Rock Club. The Philly mainstay likes to keep busy, having released full length (watch my moves) in 2022, this 9-song hour-long “EP” just a year later, and getting out to see as much live music as he can: Vile was spotted at Neil Young’s Freedom Mortgage Pavilion show last month and even joined Modest Mouse on stage at The Mann last Thursday night. It’s a fantastic era to see Kurt Vile do his thing, and you’ll be happy to take part in it. // 7 p.m., $35, AA – Paige Walter

The Church - Under The Milky Way

Tuesday 6/18: Twen at Johnny Brenda’s

In the midst of touring, Nashville duo Twen recently dropped their latest single “Lucky Onze”. They’re truly DIY, van-lifeing, printing their own t-shirts, booking their own tours, even directing their own music videos. Their music, inspired by shoegaze, indie and post-punk, is just as self-defined as they are. Watch the music video for their December single “SeaStar” below and catch them at Johnny Brenda’s this Tuesday. // 8 p.m., $15, 21+ – M.Z.

TWEN - SeaStar [Official Music Video] (2024)

Tuesday 6/18: Kassi Valazza at Eagleview Town Center

Southwestern native Kassi Valazza is bringing good times and a country flare to Exton. With heartfelt lyrics and a soulful voice, Valazza’s music circles a sad country sound, wrapping you up in her beautiful yet melancholic songs. She’s been gaining a steady following since her debut self-released album in 2019. More recently, she released Kassi Valazza Knows Nothing in 2023, and if there’s one thing that Valazza knows, it’s how to explore themes of love and longing through delicately crafted songs. // 7 p.m., FREE, AA – E.Z.P.

Kassi Valazza - Smile

Friday 6/21: Corinne Bailey Rae at Parx Casino

British singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae made her initial splash in 2006 with the massive pop hit “Put Your Records On,” a charming slice of neo-soul. Her career in the years since has both embraced that legacy, and subverted it, as we heard on last year’s Black Rainbows, a genre-defying blend of barreling garage rock, futuristic electronic music, and touches of jazz, celebrating the breadth of Black music while sharing lyrical rage over centuries of oppression and imperialism. Her journey brings her to Bucks County this Friday for a gig at Parx Casino. // 8 p.m., $29 and up, AA – J.V.

Corinne Bailey Rae - He Will Follow You With His Eyes (Official Music Video)

This fall, Mary J. Blige’s second album, the deeply emotive, soul-stirring My Life, turns 30 years old, and Black Canvas will play it in full with support from vocalists Jacqueline Constance, Bekah Elaine, Queen of the Pen, Ashley Howard, Alisa Joe, and more. // 8 p.m., $30, AA – J.V.
