Take a Stroll with Yellow Humphrey at The Fire July 8

Philly is home to a number of collaborative projects that come together for the sake of creating beautiful music. Yellow Humphrey features members of National Eye, Paper Masques, and guitar toting songbird Naeemah, and they stroll down Folky Lane creating vibrant and melodic ditties. Blending classical strings and siren calls they lure you deep into a forest on the outskirts of awake and dreaming. Add in the Motown influenced pop of Berry Jones, a performance from Rick Flom of The National Eye as well as a set from Nick Krill of The Spinto Band, this could be one of those special Fire nights. Lord knows this place deserves some good times! The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $7, 21+ - Bill McThrill



Heavy Medical - Bring the Ambulance at DDG July 7

How do you define insanity? Two words: Heavy Medical. The latest project from Philly’s Nervous Sex cohorts David Angiolini and David Altman takes their madcap enthusiasm for auditory onslaughts to new heights, trouncing ears with brutal bass, buzz saw guitars, violent drums and static vocals. And if musical destruction is your cup of tea, (which it should be, because there is nothing more awesome and humbling than a little sonic pummeling), find your way to Danger Danger Gallery, where they’ll be performing tonight with New York’s grindcore trio Child Abuse and Brooklyn’s black metal outfit LITURGY. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 8 pm, $5 - $10, All Ages - Annamarya Scaccia

From The Deli's Open Blog: The Ghost in You Release ST Album

After nearly 3 years of people bugging him to release an album, not to mention being dropped from a record deal literally a month before its release, The Ghost in You finally compiled 9 of his and fans’ favorite tracks, and put together his first full-length himself. Fully mastered from his 4-track cassette recordings, this self-titled debut album is a perfect example of how simple can be beautiful. Download it today on CDBaby, Bandcamp.com and iTunes.

The Roots Welcome America on the Ben Franklin Parkway!

Happy 4th of July! It’s party time folks! Well, I support party time anytime, but independence, beer, BBQs and The Legendary Roots is certainly a reason to celebrate. Now, I don’t kid myself. It’s probably hard to get yourself pumped up when you are opening for the Poo Poo Dolls with a handful of songs so we might get “a take the money and run”/”the festival” set. But The Roots have a hot new album, How I Got Over, that their hustlin’ so it would certainly be in their best interest to throw down tonight. (I’m sending good vibes with the video above.) Just have a backup plan for when their set is over. It’s sad that Sheryl Crow doesn’t sound that bad this year. Wawa Welcome America, Ben Franklin Parkway, 8pm, FREE, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
