Syd Torchio Art Show w/Northern Arms at PhilaMOCA Jan. 29

With background motifs like the Ellen Powell Tiberino Museum and models like Playboy Bunny Savage, S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D., and members of the Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow troupe, Syd Torchio’s elaborate portraits have been known to channel another quixotic sense of reality. And his art shows at PhilaMOCA have been mainstays that have also featured some pretty eclectic musicians. Tonight's exhibit will be no exception since it will feature gothic Americana nine-piece, Northern Arms, and since they've been hard at work recording an upcoming album at Miner Street Recordings, you might just be in for a preview. Torchio will also be performing with his multi-instrumental modern folk quartet, Taupe, that also features ex-members of The Oubliette Ensemble. They'll be joined by the quirky four-piece, Minka, whose sound is filled with 80’s rock nostalgia. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Bill McThrill  

Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket Record Release Show at Underground Arts Oct. 16

The week can really hold you down. When Friday finally rolls around, you’re ready to break out and embrace that groove train. If that’s the case, punch your ticket at Underground Arts this evening. Celebrating the release of their new record, The Octopus!, Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket invite you on their psychedelic spaceship of funk. Horn–charged blasts ignite the soulful get down. The cool, calm and collected dance-rock of Minka, whose sound is bathed in the waters of Bowie & Byrne, turns up the heat. Dishing out their customary dose of Balkan brass, The West Philadelphia Orchestra lifts a traditional sound with an exuberant modern feel, and to top this off, none other than Miss Martha Graham Cracker. Underground Arts, 1100 Callowhill St., 8pm, $13, 21+ - Michael Colavita
