Weekend Warrior, December 14 - 16

Weekend Warrior, December 14 - 16

Strand of Oaks has had a helluva 2012, which saw him release another beautiful album in Dark Shores and found him reaching out to the masses on tours with the likes of Bowerbirds, Yellow Ostrich, and The Tallest Man on Earth. Showalter is all set to wrap up his successful year with his first headlining show at Johnny Brenda’s this Saturday, and it will likely be one of the last chances to see him play a hometown show before he heads for a tour of Sweden and Norway with Tallest Man on Earth in 2013. Little Big League will have plenty to celebrate when they open the show since they recently finished up work on their upcoming debut LP that should see the light of day at the beginning of next year. Buried Beds are another band who had a great year and will have some big things in store for the new year, so when they take the stage you might just get a preview of what is to come. It’s going to be a righteous locals only evening. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill
