Tomorrow night, Kurt Vile (Philadelphia), Wooden Shjips, and Young Prisms play the Hemlock Tavern (9pm, $10).
Kurt Vile creates a previously undiscovered thin line between Springsteenesque rock and bedroom psych-pop. The member of War on Drugs turned solo with Constant Hitmaker and continues to garner attention with his Matador debut, Childish Prodigy, out earlier this month.

Opening the show is SF lo-fi psych-pop band Young Prisms, whose first EP was released this month by Mexican Summer for digital download and on a 12″. They’ll be playing the label’s CMJ showcase, and were recently named a “must-hear artist” by SPIN.[audio:http://downloads.pitchforkmedia.com/Young%20Prisims%20-%20Weekends%20and%20Treehouses.mp3] Young Prisms – “Weekends and Treehouses”
