Neko Case

Powerhouse vocalist and formidable songwriter Neko Case makes her way back through town as a headliner after opening for Ray LaMontagne at the Festival Pier last summer. Case has had a varied career, beginning when she was framed as an alt-country singer in the early ’00s. She’s recorded seven solo albums, appeared on seven more with indie-pop band The New Pornographers, and teamed up with k.d. lang and Laura Veirs on 2016’s case/lang/veirs. Her latest, Hell-On, is an often-beautiful platter of intelligent and tough-minded folk-rock that sounds like nobody else but Neko Case. Singer-guitarist Margaret Glaspy opens and is worth getting there early for. — Dan DeLuca

8 p.m. Friday. Keswick Theatre, 291 N. Keswick Ave., Glenside. $40. 215-572-7650.

Liz Longley

It’s a homecoming for Liz Longley. The Nashville-based singer-songwriter began drawing attention for her folk-pop music more than a decade ago while still a student at Downingtown West High School in Chester County. Since then, the Berklee College of Music graduate has been living up to that early promise and drawing well-deserved acclaim for her striking voice, penetrating lyrics — she has won numerous songwriting competitions — and commanding stage presence. With Jesse Ruben. — Nick Cristiano

8 p.m. Friday. World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St. $22. 215-222-1400

Brothers Osborne

Osborne brothers John and T.J. grew up in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay before moving to Nashville, and the rugged, bluesy country duo recorded their second album, last April’s Port Saint Joe, in the Gulf Coast of Florida town from which it takes its name. The album highlights John as a fingerpicking guitarist and T.J. as a soulful vocalist. And though it’s a little too careful to touch on outlaw-country clichés — they love “Weed, Whiskey and Willie” and are hungover over because they “Drank Like Hank” — their wide-ranging songwriting skills are abundantly clear throughout. — D.D.

8 p.m. Friday. The Fillmore, 29 E. Allen St. Sold out. 215-309-0150.


Danielson, the South Jersey indie band led by Daniel Smith, has always been good at confusing people, whether it’s those who want to label them a Christian rock band — which Smith insists they are not — or those who wonder why the group appears in uniforms that make them look like a team of candy stripers. In any case, the visual and theatrical aspects of Danielson’s onstage presentation can’t distract from Smith’s obvious talents as a songwriter and conceptualist. In October, the Clarksboro band — whose last full-length, The Best Of Gloucester County, came out in 2011 — returned with their five-song Snap Outtavit EP. They top a four-act bill in Fishtown on Friday. — D.D.

8 p.m. Friday. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave. $13. 215-739-9684.

An Evening with Jason Robert Brown

Jason Robert Brown, the Tony Award-winning composer of Broadway’s Parade and The Bridges of Madison County (coming to Philadelphia Theatre Company’s Suzanne Roberts Theatre in February) has long had a second career as a rocking singer-songwriter with a Randy Newman/Springsteen sound. While albums such as 2005’s Wearing Someone Else’s Clothes are detailed character studies with cosmopolitan pop edges, 2018’s How We React and How We Recover is a sophisticated poison pen letter to the horrors of the current political climate. “A Song About Your Gun” is an emotional but reasoned response to the mass shootings at Sandy Hook, Pulse Nightclub, and more. As if he needed more pop cred, Brown has cowritten several songs for Ariana Grande, who performed in one of his theater productions (13) in her child-actor past. Miss this rare solo show at your peril. — A.D. Amorosi

7 p.m. Saturday. Philadelphia Theatre Company, 480 S. Broad St. $40.

The Tony Award-winning composer of Broadway’s 'Parade' and 'The Bridges of Madison County' comes to the Philadelphia Theatre Company Saturday, Jan. 26.

Amen Dunes

After putting out four albums of haunted, often-cryptic psych-folk, Amen Dunes — the project of 38-year-old Damon McMahon — went wide-screen on last year’s acclaimed Freedom, adding pulsing electronics and crisp electric guitars to searching, insistent songs. The new sense of confidence and clarity didn’t diminish the eerie quality that suffuses McMahon’s work: his slippery voice, tinged with vibrato, is still central, but songs like the driving “Blue Rose,” the bouncy “Calling Paul the Suffering,” and the nostalgic “Believe” are surprisingly extroverted. — Steve Klinge

8 p.m. Wednesday. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St. $16. 215-232-2100.
