Hezekiah Jones and Friends at The Fire March 5

Things have been going quite well for Hezekiah Jones (Raphael Cutrufello) and his merry band of Joneses. His latest offering on Yer Bird Records, Bread of Teeth, is just a little taster as he works on his upcoming full length. He’s getting ready to hit the road on a mini-tour in March with Chris Kasper, but before he does he’ll be doing a show at his home away from home tonight at The Fire. You never know who or how many people will be popping up to play alongside Raph, but expect it to be good vibes all around. Also on the lineup is our current band of the month, The Spinning Leaves, the Americana folk stars, who just recently released their full length vinyl, Love, on Ropadope. Rounding out the lineup is Kevin James Devine, who has emerged on the scene in true working man fashion with his debut release Through The Fields. The Fire, 412 W.

Post Post at Danger Danger Gallery March 5

Post Post write endearing indie pop that is earnest and accessible with an underlying feeling of constantly fighting for survival or just making it through one more night alone. Michelle Zauner’s sweet, bend but never break vocals is youthful, but her lyrics pack a sucker-punch of maturity. They’ve graduated from Garage Band to a real studio for their upcoming EP. I’m sure that you’ll get a taste of the new tunes at Danger Danger Gallery tonight. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 9pm, $5, All Ages (Photo by Noah Temple) - H.M. Kauffman    



Return to the Golden Ages at The Ox March 4

The identity of Golden Ages may be enshrouded in mystery and hoodies. But this one man bedroom production is a swirl of vibrant colorful soundscapes. Still relatively new on the scene with his first EP Sitting Softly in the Sea emerging last summer. But it has gained him a strong reputation and some serious praise. NEU Magazine pronounced Golden Ages a “bold step back to the time when big acoustics mattered but still keep it very 2010.” While The Fader said that the music sounds “like being birthed inside of a rainbow.” Golden Ages just recently released his second offering, an 8 song album called Tradition.

The Extraordinaires and Dangerous Ponies Pre-SXSW at JB’s March 3

The energy will be bursting at the seems tonight at Johnny Brenda’s with the quirky, artsy folk rock of The Extraordinaires and the traveling indie pop party known as Dangerous Ponies. They’ll be throwing down one last time in town before heading down south to SXSW like the rest of their kind do in March. They’ll also be joined by Brooklyn vaudevillian-esque act The Lisps.
