Rock and Roll PB&J: Soraia, Tony Travalini at Mojo Main

For some reason, there are certain things that bring comfort to your life. Someone else might think they're mediocre, or even shit, but to you they restore order amidst the chaos. They're things like this:

And this:

And this:

If you were going to come up with a local concert equivalent of this, it'd be something like Friday's (April 26) show at Mojo Main, where Philadelphia-based Soraia will be joined by Tony Travalini and the Still Lifes. Back in the day (and by back in the day I mean five years ago), you could find these two acts at the original Mojo, Mojo 13 in Holly Oak, pretty regularly, playing alongside acts like Dead Loretta, She Slash He, The Tressels and, well, Von Hayes.

You are the one true king.
Soraia is led by lead singer Soraia Mansour, who sort of resembles that beautiful and horrifying fire lady on "Game of Thrones." They'll be pimping the superb tunes from their latest album, "In the Valley of Love and Guns." In addition to the always steady Travalini and his Still Lifes, there's also Kind of Creatures, an up-and-coming new (and by new we mean, like, they just played their first show last month) band with some pretty interesting sounds going on. Definitely check out their set.

The bands Tone and Gang Age round out the night of music, which begins at 9 p.m. Admission is $5, and tickets can be purchased in advance at Ticketfly.
