Friday 6/28: Goose at The Mann

Your favorite jam band is coming to Philly! Goose will be playing at The Mann this Friday, and it will be a great chance to see their new line-up live. Earlier this year, Goose released a fully instrumental album called Ted Tapes 2024. It was an unintentional product of the band’s improvisational jams, recorded during the auditions for their new drummer, Cotter Ellis. There is no doubt that they found the right guy, as can be heard throughout the almost 3-hour album. The Connecticut-based quintet are known for their experimental, groovy, and, at times, psychedelic sound, ensuring that their live show will be enthralling and unique. // 7:30 p.m., $38, AA – Emma Zoe Polyak

Friday 6/28: Mdou Moctar at Union Transfer

Get ready everyone, Mdou Moctar is returning to Philly. Blending classic rock with North African rhythms, the four-piece Tuareg band doesn’t shy away from politically charged songs. In fact, they embrace them unflinchingly. Funeral for Justice, released just last month, was written after Mdou Moctar was left stranded indefinitely in the States after their last tour due to unrest back home in Niger. The result is a captivating cry for justice, with songs that will be nothing short of spellbinding when played live. Don’s miss Mdou Moctar at Union Transfer this Friday. // 8 p.m., $25, AA – E.Z.P.

They will be joined by genre-bending duo Mahogany and Bleary Eyed, a four-piece shoegaze band with ties to Philly. // 8 p.m., $21.15, AA – E.Z.P.


Saturday 6/29: Hiatus Kaiyote at Franklin Music Hall

A self-proclaimed genre-fluid band, Hiatus Kaiyote fall into the sweet spot between RnB and a jam band, with lead singer Nai Palm’s smooth vocals and the band’s funky playing. If you haven’t heard their songs directly, you’ve probably heard them sampled by other artists such as Anderson .Paak and The Carters. Their live shows are electrifying, and the Franklin Music Hall is surely in for a treat. // 8:30 p.m. $39.50, AA – E.Z.P.
