Guide to what’s happening in Philly this week


Toby Keith

Friday, 7 p.m.

The Susquehanna Bank Center


With Eric Church, JT Hodges and too many cowboy hats for Camden: If you get it, you get it.


Saturday, 8 p.m.

The Susquehanna Bank Center


Were we totally aware that these guys were still in business? No. But we’re kind of glad they are, and strangely drawn to the idea of seeing them on the lawn.

Peter Bjorn and John

Saturday, 8 p.m.

$19, The Trocadero

PB&J — yup, we’re going there — headline a night that also features Memoryhouse and Work Drugs.

Sean Hayes

Wednesday, 9:15 p.m.

$15, Johnny Brenda’s

Between commercial samplings and DJ remixes, you likely know this folky, soulful singer-songwriter better than you think. Philly’s own Birdie Busch goes on first.

The Low Anthem

Wednesday, 8 p.m.

$15-$17, World Cafe Live

We dig this one for an almost-fall Wednesday evening, especially with opener William Elliott Whitmore.


Andrew Dice Clay

Thursday, 7 p.m.

The TLA, $40

Andrew Dice Clay’s website proclaims him the “Undisputed Heavyweight Comedy King.” Which is kind of an accomplishment, considering there’s not really another stand-up comic weight class.


The Philadelphia Collection

Monday through

Sept. 24

Philly boutiques, salons and designers are teaming up for a two-week fall fashion binge featuring almost 75 events to get you ready for boots season. Check Metro next week for our can’t-miss picks.


GreenFest Philly

Sunday, 11 a.m.

Headhouse Square

The annual eco-friendly fest features live music, kids activities, local green vendors, a recycling bucket distribution and, of course, all the local produce of the Headhouse Square farmers market.
