The Get Up Kids | Chameleon Club (Lancaster)
Despite emerging in the mid-’90s, it wasn’t until The Get Up Kids released their second album, Something To Write Home About, in 1999 that the Kansas City, Mo.-based alt-rock band solidified their place on the music map and earned recognition as the posterchildren of emo music. TGUP returns to Lancaster’s Chameleon Club tonight alongside Toronto punk rock four-piece PUP and Philly-based Restorations. Tickets and info here.
Amen Dunes | Metro Gallery (Baltimore)
New York’s Amen Dunes kicks off its a short March/April tour run tonight at Metro Gallery in Baltimore. Singer-songwriter Damon McMahon’s abstract folk sound is as discordant as it is smart and downright mystical, right up the alley for fans of Kurt Vile. As an added bonus, the show includes an opening set from Weyes Blood. Tickets and info here.
Diamond Rugs | Ortlieb’s Lounge (Philadelphia)
“Supergroups” come and go, some as one-off projects, some as career-saving efforts for pending washed-up bands. Diamond Rugs, however, fits neither description. Comprised of Deer Tick’s John McCauley & Robbie Crowell, former Black Lips guitarist Ian St. Pé, Dead Confederate’s T. Hardy Morris, Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin and Six Finger Satellite’s Bryan Dufresne, Diamond Rugs brand of fuzzy, country-tinged, swaggery rock and roll is a hell of a good time. Catch material off the band’s recently released sophomore album, Cosmetics, tonight at Ortlieb’s Lounge in Philly. Tickets and info here.
Miranda Lambert | GIANT Center (Hershey)
Yes, that Miranda Lambert. Catch the country superstar in Hershey tonight. Tickets and info here.
