Weekend Warrior, October 17 - 19

Brooklyn guitar virtuoso and Landowne-born Steve Gunn still maintains deep roots here in Philly. So much so, he’ll be celebrating the release of his latest record, Way Out Weather, tonight at PhilaMOCA. Joining him on the bill is a couple of the finest acts in the City of Brotherly Love’s underground music community. The evening will have raucous start with rad garage-psych outfit Spacin’. The group is easily one of my favorite bands in town, and I can’t wait for their new album, which will be available via Richie Records, to come out. And things will a bit quieter but in the best way possible when talented combination of Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler take the stage to mesmerize the audience with interstellar soundscapes. It’s going to be an eclectic evening of music, but one worth catching from start to finish. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Alexis V.

Needle Points 7” Release Show at KFN Oct. 17

Philly psych/garage rock outfit Needle Points promises a real late-night party at Kung Fu Necktie for its record release show in honor of the band's latest 7”, Cripple Street (PaperCup Music), which features two new tracks (“Cripple Street” and “Black Hurricane”). The group’s new material reveals a poppier side of the five-piece, with more of a folk rock influence than on their debut EP, Bom Tugangu. Producing similar kinds of conscious-expanding jams as this evening’s headliner will be local crew The Orange Drop and The Golden Brass (from Brooklyn). It’s a special night for The Orange Drop as well. Lead guitarist Blaze Kozlik has been out as of late with a broken finger; this show will serve as his return to the stage. The Orange Drop, which released its first EP, Drone Pop, in January, is currently working on the group's next. As for tonight’s bill, you can count on some serious good vibes and maybe even some modern-day hippies. Come out, “turn on, tune in, drop out,” and get down! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N Front St, 11pm, 21+, $5 - Emily DiCicco
