Friday Concert Picks: Home Body, Meg & the Right Sound and Roosevelt Dime

The last time indie pop band Home Body came through the region, they blew away an audience at Lancaster’s Fulton Street Arts Co-op with a completely unexpected stage presence and a live performance that’s wholly unique in the genre. Blending danceable beats, uncommon lyrical content and a choreographed lighted show, the Northampton, MA-based duo of Eric Hnatow and Haley Morgan are sure to surprise the uninitiated. The show also marks the final concert show at Fulton Street and also features Saddle of Centaur, Dream Junk, Extant and Bruce Banter. The show starts at 6 p.m., and tickets are $5 at the door.

What began as a musical project between Megan McDermott and Jason Sherman of Lancaster around a year ago, Meg & the Right Sound has grown into a fully fleshed-out sound incorporating rock and soul within the four-piece band. Catch McDermott’s powerful voice sing a blend of originals and covers at 551 West in Lancaster at 9 p.m. The show is free.

Hailing from the mean streets of Brooklyn, Roosevelt Dime is no stranger to local audiences. But if you’ve never had the opportunity to see their up-tempo sounds of New Orleans jazz, blues and bluegrass mixed together (affectionately labeled Mardi-grass), tonight’s your chance. The quartet of Andrew Green on banjo, Eben Pariser on guitar, Tony Montalbano on percussion and Craig Akin on bass take the Herr Street Stage in Harrisburg at 9 p.m. Local musician Matt Wheeler opens. Tickets are $10 at the door.
