The Usual Suspects Takeover for a Good Night at The Fire Dec. 23

The Usual Suspects Takeover for a Good Night at The Fire Dec. 23

Looks like one of those heavily packed local bills will be taking over The Fire tonight with some of the usual suspects. We have Mad Dragon breakouts (and partially broken-up) Toy Soldiers coming together to infuse their trademark whiskey-and-tight-jeans blues-soaked roots rock. There’s also the eccentric folk of Michael McShane, a.k.a Cowmuddy, who, under the moniker, twists weird alt-Americana harvest tales that’s more grounded earth than bemoaning spectacles. And we can’t forget North Lawrence Midnight Singers,who just released their latest effort, Last Great Saturday Night, last month. Their polished urban country allegories blend willowy pastoral melodies with wistful indie sanguinity. But the most electrifying set - and slightly unusual for this bill - may come early from Girls Rock Philly alum Attia Taylor. With her feathery vocal echoes gliding over infectious cosmic digital lip smacks, Taylor’s minimalist twee-pop is delightfully explosive, despite its unadorned tresses. Tack on the dark, brooding folk rock of Kingston's The Ends of the Earth. It’s bound to be a good night, y’all. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave, 9pm, $5, 21+ - Annamarya Scaccia
