Weekend Warrior, April 19 - 21

The Madalean Gauze Band commemorates its latest release, Nothing Feels Beautiful Anymore (The Deli Philly’s April Record of the Month), with a fantabulous show this Saturday at Boot & Saddle. The all-female outfit unites an enchanting/tumultuous resound – one that taps into deeply personal songwriting, while retaining a playful, psych approach. That ability to acknowledge life’s pleasantries and pitfalls, as part of a larger learning experience, is encapsulated in beguilingly memorable tunes, which will be brought to life at one of our favorite Philly listening rooms. The femme fatales will also be supported by the fantasy daydream of Tim Meskers’s Garden Gate and the Jo Kusy-fronted four-piece Pouring Silver. So for those of you who are looking for a bit of 4/20 weirdness, you now know where to go. – Michael Colavita
