Weekender Opening for Mo Lowda & The Humble at Bourbon & Branch Sept. 13

Huffington Post’s new favorite band, Mo Lowda & The Humble, carry on their monthly residency at Bourbon & Branch tonight. But who you might want to pay close attention to for this edition could be up-and-coming act Weekender. Derek and Nic Sheehan have played with different combinations of musicians over the years, but they might have just found their best when paired with Emily Cahill (Gypsy Death And You) and Tom Anthony (Bleeding Fractals). And when they won studio time with producer Kyle “Slick” Johnson (Creepoid, Bleeding Rainbow, Cymbals Eat Guitars, etc.) in a Deli Philly Giveaway, they used it well to record their debut EP Spanish Peaks. Since then the band has went on to open for the likes of Future Islands and The Growlers, and received their first taste of big festivals this year at Firefly Music Fest. They’ll also be joined by lo-fi rockers Roof Doctor and blues-folk rock artists Midwestern Exposure. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $8-$10, 21+ - Bill McThrill


BITBY Summer Sounds at TLA Aug. 15

This evening, at the Theatre of Living Arts, you’ll find Doylestown’s Commonwealth Choir as the featured headliners of a stacked local area bill. The guys are still living off the buzz of their debut EP Shirtless and their energetic live performances. Shorty boy-boy has been taking a bit of hiatus while frontman Joshua Pannepacker has joined the band Cheerleader. But they have recently resurfaced with a new music video for “Crickets,” and will be back to deliver a live set where you can expect the unexpected. Since Air is Human unveiled an unreleased track from their upcoming album on Y-Not Radio, there’s a good chance that you may be treated to more new material. The rest of BITBY Summer Sounds will be rounded out by Pine Barons, Weekender, and Mark Lanky. Theatre of Living Arts, 334 South St., 7pm, $11, All Ages - Bill McThrill

Weekender Opening for Peace at JB’s June 10
