Tennyson @ Underground Arts Black Box | Wednesday, November 9

Skinny Lister @ The Foundry | Thursday, November 10

STS9 @ The Fillmore | Friday, November 11
Electronic rock group STS9 has a trippy sound that goes with the message behind their new album, The Universe Inside: “It is a story about human identity and the magical truth of who we are, where we’re going, and our place in the Universe. It says we are one, made of stardust and the forces of nature that evolved over billions of years.”
Lydia Loveless @ MilkBoy | Friday, November 11
You’ll either love or hate the twang bouncing off country singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless’s modern honky-tonk sound.
Young Thug @ Electric Factory | Sunday, November 13
Atlanta rapper Young Thug does not have the clearest enunciation, but that hasn’t stopped him from racking up three top 40 debuts on this year’s Billboard 200, and three debuts in the top five on the Rap Albums chart.
Questlove Supreme @ The Foundry | Sunday, November 13
Close out the week with Questlove from The Roots. He’’s coming home to Philly to DJ upstairs at the Foundry inside the Fillmore Philadelphia.
