Music/Nightlife

Philly-area music fans will have double the opportunity to see Paul McCartney in June.
British singer-songwriter Mike Scott and the Waterboys' primary concerns are apparently blues, water, and having the blues in relation to the water. Scan his 34-year-long catalog and you'll find album titles such as Fisherman's Blues, This Is the Sea, and the recently released Modern Blues.

Guests can go on walks and also be a citizen scientist for the day. The event is part of the Philadelphia Science Festival's Discovery Day.
The artistic solidity on which Richard Goode made his name has given way to encroaching adventurousness over the years, though the limitations of that were intermittently apparent at his Philadelphia Chamber Music Society recital Tuesday at the Kimmel Center.
The first thing you should know about Zella Day is that Zella is her real first name. No fabricated stage names from the Pinetop, Ariz. native.
Members of local band Low Cut Connie function, and occasionally dysfunction, like a long-distance relationship. With the principal songwriters sometimes separated by the Atlantic Ocean - Adam Weiner's a Cherry Hill native, while Dan Finnemore's from Birmingham, England - the band's found itself facing the same existential crisis time and time again: Are we really doing this?
