Birds of Maya Opening for The Meat Puppets at Underground Arts Oct. 10

Tonight marks a seldom opportunity to catch a ride on the full-bore garage-psych steamroller known as Birds of Maya. The incendiary trio, which spawned Purling Hiss and Spacin’, naturally lock into raunchy grooves - a marriage of nasty heady guitar solos, thudding bass lines and smacking percussion that transform into jams of orbital proportion. The moody hypnotic electro-pop of Minneapolis’ Enemy Planes will join them opening for the old school alt-rockers and Kirkwood family affair The Meat Puppets. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 7pm, $17, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The Shalefield Organizing Committee Benefit w/Birds of Maya at Circle of Hope Sept. 14

Birds of Maya are making a rare appearance tonight at the Circle of Hope as part of a benefit for the Shalefield Organizing Committee. The organization is “a group of concerned residents from across eastern Pennsylvania who work to protect human and ecological rights for those living in the shalefields,” which helps to combat fracking, the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside, causing dangerous side effects. They’ll be joined by Dance Nook and Matt Sowell. Circle of Hope, 2007 Frankford Ave., 7pm, $10, All Ages - Alexis V.
