The Roots Present Philly’s 4th of July Jam at Ben Franklin Parkway!

Did you hear that The Roots are performing a free super secret show on the Ben Franklin Parkway tonight? Ok, so maybe it’s not so super secret, but it’s definitely free! The famed Philly institution is headlining tonight's Philly's Fourth of July Jam and Grand Finale Fireworks, closing out the week-long annual Wawa Welcome America! Festival with ?uestlove acting as its musical director. Besides the Main Stage this year with Earth Wind & Fire, Michael McDonald, Estelle, Sara Bareilles, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, plus a special Gamble and Huff tribute for the 40th anniversary of their Philadelphia International Records label, there will also be ?uesto’s Stage with Nicos Gun, Res, Donn T, Kindred The Family Soul, Chin Chin, and the last minute addition of ultra smoothly hilarious Cookie Rabinowitz (feat. Schoolly D). So if you’re ready to brave the crowds, grab whatever chemical mixtures will entertain you for the evening and head out to the Parkway (just don’t get yourself arrested)! Ben Franklin Parkway, 20th & Eakins Oval, FREE, 7pm All Ages - Annamarya Scaccia

Celebrate American Independence w/Joe Jack Talcum at KFN July 4

Local punk all-star Joe Jack Talcum sets to croon out acoustic anthems of rebellion, life, and lust. Co-founder of the legendary Dead Milkmen, Joe Jack’s solo work is heartfelt and peculiar, with the perfect amount of tongue-in-cheek sensibility to keep fans of his earlier antics with the Milkmen smitten by his clever lyricism. Tracks like “U Turn Me On” and “Photograph” prove Joe Jack’s skills are timeless, not to mention memorable. Known to belt out “Punk Rock Girl” every now and then, catch Talcum along with No-wave creepsters TV Ghost and frenetic cuts like “The Recluse” and “The Network.” Add in fast-paced faves by Nobunny (think “Somewhere New” and the screams of “Tina Goes to Work”) and local garage punk outfit The Pussy Dogs plus DJ Jonny Snot (aka Horizontal Action’s resident DJ) and you’ve got a lineup that bleeds red, white, and blue. It’s an early show today, and you still have time to grab some free grub at the 4th of July KFN Family BBQ (12pm - 4pm) happening before it so join your fellow Americans, punks, and patriots in the celebration. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 5pm, $10, 21+ - Dianca Potts

Philadelphia Sound Konnoisseurs at Voyeur July 3

Voyeur will host Philadelphia Sound Konnoisseurs tonight as part of The Roots presenting Philly’s 4th of July Jam as well as being the official Making Time after-party. The lineup of handpicked tastemakers will be taking over multiple rooms throughout the nightclub. Mad Decent founder, DJ, producer, and world-traveling tweeter Diplo will be back in town to see what kind of trouble he can get into in Philly or should I say get Philly into. DJ Jazzy Jeff and ?uestlove, who is also quite the world-traveling tweeter himself, teamed up for the first time at last month’s Roots Picnic and will share the stage again this evening, now coining their collaboration with the moniker Magnificent Love. Judging from the duo’s debut picnic performance, you can expect a journey through their vast knowledge of hip-hop/R&B hits-story and deep cuts. West Coast’s J Rocc and New York’s DJ Spinna will also be controlling the club’s turntables to keep the dance party going long after you may not. Voyeur, 1221 St. James St., 9pm, $20, 21+ - Jules Friedland

Young Gliss and Kuf Knotz Ready to Jam at TLA July 3

If The Roots plan on hijacking your next two days in Philly, then it just makes sense to bring more hip hop into your life tonight at the Theatre of Living Arts. Local young buck Young Gliss will be holding things down for his cuz-o Questo. Young Gliss recently released the sequel to his debut, which is titled Dealing With The Pressure 2, so expect plenty of new tracks. He’ll also be unveiling a new collaboration called “Falling” tonight with West Philly’s Chill Moody. Philly hip hop staple and XPN favorite Kuf Knotz has been called on to bring some peace, love and good vibes to the big stage of the TLA this evening. He’ll be dropping some “boombox logic” to get the crowd in the mood for tomorrow night’s 4th of July Jam. Both homegrown emcees will be sharing the bill with up-and-coming Left Coast indie artists Dom Kennedy and Casey Veggies as well as local spitter Dosage. Theatre of Living Arts, 334 South St., 7pm, $18, All Ages - Alexis V.

Making Time “You’re Welcome America” Rad-B-Q at Bamboo Bar July 3

Though it may feel like Wawa has taken over 4th of July WEEK in Philly, Making Time “You’re Welcome America” Rad-B-Q is here to bring us that non-family-friendly party that we really wish would be happening on the Ben Franklin Parkway. Instead, Dave P and his army of DJs will be laying down the radness at Bamboo Bar this evening, and there will be live performances by London’s electro-noise punk trio T3ETH (Moshi Moshi Records), LA’s Puro Instinct (Mexican Summer), the 80’s synth-pop throwback of scholar John Maus, and LA’s Geneva Jacuzzi (a.k.a. Geneva Garvin). There will also be FREE PBR and fishbowl drink specials from 6 - 8pm (Sailor Jerry Rum specials all night long), grilling by PYT, Little Baby’s Ice Cream, swimming, and as always spectacular visuals from Klip Collective’s Ricardo Rivera. Niiice and don’t be afraid to get wet! Bamboo Bar, 927 N. Delaware Ave., 6pm - 2am, $10 adv/$12 door, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
