Far-Out Fangtooth Share Their Indifference at The El Bar Oct. 24

It’s far from a typical show already when The El Bar hosts a completely out there band from the land down under like Circle Pit at 6pm. But things are sure to get even weirder when Far-Out Fangtooth (with former members of garage heartthrobs Dark Horse and the Carousels) provide a suitable soundtrack to the evening. Combining lo-fi beats and riffs with subtly crafted drum work and raw, echoed vocals, you have a show that howls upon any cycle of the moon. They recently released their self-titled debut 7” on Philly-centric Ian Records. And when they share the stage with a wild bunch of Aussies and the crazies from Chicago’s Population, it makes for an extra special occasion! So get ready to drown your playoff sorrows in plenty of cheap beer and liquor. El Bar, 1356 N. Front St., 6pm, $7, 21+ - Bill McThrill

Blood Feathers Open for The Walkmen at The Troc Oct. 23

While October has been a most excellent month here in The Deli camp, I have to think that it has been the same if not better in the Blood Feathers camp. Our favorite local vintage rock n’ rollers just opened for Blonde Redhead at the E Factory last weekend and tonight they’ll be bringing their feel good tunes to The Troc to warm up the crowd for The Walkmen, which will be their last show in the U.S. before heading off to Europe with The Black Keys. The Phillies game will also be showing in the balcony bar and the lobby during the concert so you really have no excuses. The Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 9pm, $18.50 adv/$21 door, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman

Algernon Cadwallader and Much More at DDG Oct. 23

If you want to show some city pride but dread the trek to Citizen’s Park for the Phillies or if you just don’t give a crap about baseball but wanna get out of your cramped abode, then wiggle your way to West Philly’s Danger Danger Gallery this evening for the nearly five-hour MINI FEST. It’s a night of two-tone punk appeal-meets-balls to the wall shredding hardcore that’ll represent Philly hard - on the 10-band bill, six outfits are stripped from our own junkyard (Snowing, Towers, The Joint Chiefs of Math, Gods and Queens, Pink Coffins, and Algernon Cadwallader) two Philly-by-association acts (Lancaster’s 1994! and Kresgeville’s The Greek Favourites), plus two party crashers (Syracuse’s hardcore rip tide OAK & BONE and Oakland’s melodic punk trio Big Kids). But if you only go for one band, push through the crowd for Algernon Cadwallader. Their rowdy underground indie punk is snotty, brash and super infectious, with dissonant pop melodies twirling under chorus caterwauls and screaming sing-speak strains. It’s gonna be one helluva sonic party blast that’ll leave you happily blown. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 6pm, $10 suggested donation, All Ages - Annamarya Scaccia

Benefit for Giovanni’s Room at The Rotunda Oct. 23

Giovanni’s Room, Philadelphia’s oldest gay and feminist bookstore, is is need of some help for a renovation project that involves getting a new wall. So to help some of Philly’s hottest queer musicians are coming together to give it to them in style. The end result could be the Rotunda hosting one the naughtiest benefits in its history and that might be attributed to the colorful set by quirky pop outfit, Sweatheart. The band has already gained some serious street cred by opening for the likes of Devo and Bad Brains and acquiring the services of anti-diva Amanda Blank. Joining them will be dance floor destroyers and underground hip hop crew Sgt. Sass as well as The Lesbian Dorkestra (you know what they say happens at band camp). The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St., 6pm, $5 donation, All Ages - Bill McThrill
