Kurt Vile and the Violators

Media Title

Yes. We write about Kurt Vile every time he plays town. So what? Wanna fight about it? Philly’s psych folk prodigy has blown up the last couple of years, partially because this affable longhair always seems to have a gem of a release at the ready. This year’s Smoke Ring for My Halo, a critically acclaimed tour de force, may have been his most shining accomplishment to date. This week Matador releases his newest EP, So Outta Reach, which features bonus cuts from the Smoke Ring sessions, and a cover of Springsteen’s “Downbound Train,” a staple of recent live sets. What’s more, attendees of Saturday’s gig will receive a free 7-inch rekkid, only available at the gig! Just another reason to go watch a man who has invented his own distinct style of guitar plunking. -K.B.

8:30pm. $14. With Blues Control + Far-Out Fangtooth. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St. 215.232.2100. utphilly.com
