The last time we saw Nashville singer/songwriter Maggie Rose in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection she was headlining the grand reopening of the Music Hall at World Café Live in September of 2021.  Although music fans were still navigating their comfort levels in live settings at the time, the show proved to be one of the best the city saw that year.  However, Rose has played countless shows in the almost three years since (bringing her number of performances at the iconic Grand Ole Opry to over 100) and she’s preparing to return downstairs at World Café Live next Wedn ..read more

We remember the days of Texas psych-funk trio Khruangbin playing Eraserhood’s Underground Arts like it was yesterday (The last time was apparently 2018…)  However, their last date in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection had them headlining the significantly grander and more opulent opera house (The Met Philly) up the street, whose stage they graced in March of 2022.  And when the band announced their latest tour this January, they scheduled two dates at the up-to-3,500-capacity theatre… with a third added shortly thereafter… Khruangbin are currently touring in support o ..read more

Alyse Vellturo, better known as PRONOUN, has the distinction of being the first artist I went to see live post-lockdown (Earlier that year, prior to the release of her June 2021 EP, OMG I MADE IT, we chatted and she told me she was desperately itching to get out of her apartment and back into the world.)  It was July of 2021, and she was supporting Ace Enders at The Foundry, with our local buddies Carly Cosgrove handling opening duties.  It was one of many shows that the Brooklyn-based “indie-bedroom-arena-rock” artist has played at The Foundry over the years.  However, she’s al ..read more

Last Saturday, Spanish Love Songs headlined a stacked lineup at the Theater of Living Arts. With support from Worry Club, Sydney Sprague, and Oso Oso co-headlining, the show was an incredible experience. The band’s energy was unmatched – only by the energy of the audience. The setlist included songs from their whole catalogue, with a focus on their most recent release, No Joy (2023). Overall, it was an unforgettable night filled with amazingly talented musicians and visible love from fans ..read more

Nashville-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lydia Luce recently found herself on tour supporting our good buddy Andrea von Kampen for a March trek (The two will be reuniting for a November tour of the UK.)  “We’ve been friends for a little while.  We’re in each other’s top ‘sounds like’ on Spotify, so we call ourselves Spotify Sisters,” Lydia jokes with me during a recent phone chat.  However, this Saturday Lydia Luce will kick off a headlining tour which will have her at The Lounge at World Café Live on Thursday May 16th.   For these dates Luce will be ..read more

We first met Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Nisa – who described her sounds as, “genre-less music, leaning on pop, but not being tied to a genre.” – last February, while she was on her first-ever tour, which included a stop at MilkBoy.  Although at the time Nisa only had EPs and singles under her belt, she told us that she was starting to incorporate songs from a forthcoming LP into her live sets.  That debut LP, Shapeshifting, dropped last Friday, courtesy of Tender Loving Empire, something that she tells me during a recent phone chat marked an important step in her career: “It fe ..read more

We last saw charmingly gothy alternative chamber pop outfit Sloppy Jane in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection just this February, when they opened the last area show ever for blues punk duo Deap Vally at Underground Arts on the band’s farewell tour.  Sloppy Jane’s live lineup is forever in flux (from 2014-2015 the band featured Phoebe Bridgers on bass), revolving around frontperson, songwriter, and live conductor Haley Dahl, but their stop at Underground Arts featured seven musicians performing a set that finds itself at a weirdly perfect intersection of Broadway theater an ..read more
