New Track: "One Day, My Friend" - Camp Candle

Slinky, seductive vocals and a sneaky electro-dance beat characterize “One Day, My Friend,” the new single from Camp Candle. It hits on a subconscious level, as that funky bass line mingles with synth, and the percussion gradually turns up the heat while maintaining a cool sense of calm. The duo will be performing at Boot & Saddle on Wednesday, October 19 with Mars Parker. (Photo by Joe del Tufo)

Needle Points Record Release Show at JB's Sept. 18

Celebrating the release of their latest effort, Feel Young (which officially comes out September 23), at Johnny Brenda's tonight, Needle Points fuses modern grit with nostalgic production, which was helmed this time around by Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog). Reminiscent of a drive down some forgotten, dusty road and suddenly discovering something new and rejuvenated in rock 'n' roll, the group has a sound that you'll gladly want to crank up while rolling the windows down. Step back in time this evening, where you'll also be joined by LA's Mystic Braves and The Dream Ride. Needle Points is heading out in October/November for a nearly month-long tour with mewithoutYou, Into It. Over It., and Yoni Wolf, so make sure to cop an album when the traveling circus rolls into your town and support the band's imprint NeedLove Records. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Keith Kelley

Sing, Bird of Prey LP Release Show at The Barbary Sept. 17

Philly indie rockers Sing, Bird of Prey have released their debut full-length Crystal Embryo digitally earlier this week. Produced by Kyle Pulley at The Headroom Philadelphia with additional engineering by Shane Woods, elements of psychedelia can be found woven throughout the album’s eleven tracks. “Wild Type” initially feels like a piano ballad before ultimately evolving into a full band opus, while “Microsatellite” follows adding rough, buzzy guitars and live-room drumming to the raw emotional vocals. The song structure and vocal processing evokes John Lennon’s later period Beatles work (White Album and beyond). You can catch Sing, Bird of Prey live tonight at The Barbary, along with Minka and Albondigas. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 7pm, $5-$7, 21+ - Dave Cromwell

Grand Re-Opening All-Day Music Festival at The Fire Sept. 17

Summer may be starting to fade; however, before it’s officially in the rearview mirror, head over to The Fire for an all-day outdoor music festival celebrating the venue's Grand Re-Opening. Beginning at noon, the free event, sponsored by PBR as well as local brewing stalwarts Philadelphia Brewing Co., will be chock full of entertaining scenarios, including food and craft vendors, which one can indulge in whilst consuming the litany of performers. Among those slated for the task are the invigorating, bluesy, boozy Americana of Levee Drivers, the sun-kissed melodies of Archawah, the sleek and surging sound of New England’s Potty Mouth and the bare-and-booming, never-ending get down of Mumblr, so set up shop, catch some rays, and stay awhile. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 12pm-8:30pm, Free, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Weekend Warrior, September 16 - 18

I love getting to see talented artists for free! Now, nothing is ever really, truly for free with corporate-sponsored events, but I’m cool with giving up my junk email (you know you have one) for a day of performances by gifted, homegrown Philly acts. This Saturday afternoon at The Piazza at Schmidt’s Commons, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey has recruited local up-and-comers Tunji Ige, GoGo Morrow, and Anthony Somebody (of Quite Hype) for a block party to celebrate our city’s neighborhoods. And though she no longer lives here in the City of Brotherly Love, I have definitely mad love for Santigold, who is (in my humble opinion) one of the most underrated contemporary artists of our time. If you’ve never experienced her live, then do yourself a favor and make sure to make it happen. Santigold effortlessly destroys (like it ain’t no thang) every time she hits the stage. Masterfully combining music, visual art and choreographed dance, in a way that would certainly impress my spirit animal, David Byrne, I always feel like the happiest/baddest motherfucker alive each time I walk/dance out her show! That’s why I make it a point to never miss her when she’s in town, and you shouldn’t either. The Piazza at Schmidt’s Commons, 1001 N. 2nd St. #21, 2pm-7pm, Free +1 (w/RSVP), 21+ - Q.D. Tran
