Pinkwash Plays Host to Slow Mass at Everybody Hits Sept. 30

Situated along the western edge of Northern Liberties on Girard is batting cage and DIY venue Everybody Hits, who this week will be hosting a stacked set headed by Philly's own Pinkwash.  The duo of Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine churns out intensely gripping tunes that are as swift as they are leaden, captivating a wide array of attention in the music community, while finding homes for their releases on labels Sister Polygon and Don Giovanni Records. The band’s name is derived from the term "pinkwashing," which refers to the often unregulated practice of companies aligning their products and brands with cancer awareness and LGBTQ movements without necessarily contributing to those causes. Pinkwash will be joined by fellow Philadelphians Lithuania and Loose Tooth, as well as Chicago-based musical outlet Slow Mass. Slow Mass are currently on tour in support of their new EP Treasure Pains, released earlier this month via Landland. They draw sonic inspiration from associated acts Into It. Over It., My Dad and Former Thieves, while distinguishing their new project as an exciting endeavor with plenty of potential for new material. Everybody Hits, 527 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, All Ages - Josh Kelly

Nicklas Hughes Record Release Show at Boot & Saddle Sept. 29

Nicklas Hughes celebrates the release of his sophomore album, Games (due out tomorrow via Black Rd Records), with a show this evening at Boot & Saddle. Hughes enlists an emotion-exposing, singer-songwriter accessibility. However, those somber tales are hardened by the influx of multidimensional synth/pop-rock-toned instrumentation. That on-the-move feeling places the songs in the present tense as the listener lives them in the moment, while still carrying an emotive depth. Joining in on the celebration are the continuously-searching, electro-folk quartet of Upperfields and the engaging serene vocal synth combination of Natalie Wimberg and Marc Neibauer, a.k.a. My Home is the Sea. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
