Once again, the super-cool Street music editors have written in to tell us what's worth hearing this week.
Friday, 9/26, Cut Copy with The Presets The Trocadero All Ages
For those of you who didn't even exist in the eighties ('12, we're talking to you...), here's your chance for a taste of it. Head down to Chinatown for a night of Australian electronic power pop goodness that will have you humming "Xanadu" before you know it.
Friday, 9/26, Willie Nelson The Tower Theater All Ages Don't miss everyone's favorite head band wearing folk/country star playing this Friday in Upper Darby's The Tower on S. 69th. Braid your hair, roll yourself a joint, and get back on the road again. $50-120.
Saturday, 9/27, Weezer with Angels and Airwaves and Tokyo Police Club Susquehanna Bank Center All Ages If you're feeling ambitious head out to Camden to enjoy this triumvirate on the 26th at the Susquehanna Center located on 1 Harbour Blvd. Break out your Buddy Holly glasses and undo your sweaters while enjoying Angels and Airwaves's plethora of talent (band members hail from Blink 182, The Offspring, and 30 Seconds to Mars) and another one of Canada's finest indie groups Tokyo Police Club. $50-55.
Wednesday, 10/1: DJ Spooky Institute of Contemporary Art All Ages Head over to ICA (located next to Urban Outfitters for those of you new to campus) for the first Penn First Wednesday of the year featuring DJ Spooky, aka Paul Miller. Inspired by the current ramp installation, DJ Spooky will perform his original music, accompanied by multimedia art. And the best part? It's free with a Penn ID.
