Philly Weekend + Beyond Local Music Picks - 4/13-4/19

Hey Philly! It's Spring? Maybe? The weather is finally warming up but it doesn't exactly look like anything is blooming yet. This weekend is the start of the outdoor concert season! Sunday is the Manayunk StrEAT Festival with tons of bands playing all day long for free - I love those free concerts where you can check out a lot of different music without spending all your money at multiple venues and see who you like that you want to go back and see again. I guess the venues didn't schedule too many Friday the 13th shows, but Saturday 4/14 is off the chains with lots of awesome shows, and next Thursday is looking like another complicated decision of what should you do with your night as well.

Check out the listings below and let me know if I forgot anything or should know about stuff. You can also call the hotline, since I am getting ready to drop the next podcast interview soon! Call 484-429-6949 and leave me a 3 minute or less voicemail and if it's not obscene I will play it on the show. Tell me what you're looking forward to this Spring and Summer, what songs are stuck in your head, your fave summer fests, your favorite Philly parks to see concerts in, and anything else (like your band's record release show, etc.)

As always, I only link the Philly area artists (city, suburbs, Jersey, Delaware, with moderate liberties). No offense to the other folks on these shows from other towns... Also I probably won't include Sold-Out shows, since you can't go if you don't already have your tix.

As always, msg me at or tweet me @PhillyMusicPod to let me know about upcoming shows that I should include, new songs to listen to, etc.
