Free Sample(s): Singer Tim Kinsella and his fellow math-y bandmates in Joan of Arc know a thing or two about the glory of sampling and using multiple tracks on their songs: Some of their material reportedly utilizes in excess of 100 different elements, which should make for an interesting gig tonight at Johnny Brenda's. $12 9 p.m. (doors 8 p.m.)
Fly, Eagles, Fly: After a furiously fast post-lockout off-season including many high-profile free agent signings, the Philadelphia Eagles suddenly look stacked. Will it be enough for them to finally win a championship under Andy Reid? We won't know for a while, but the first step begins tonight as the Birds take on the Ravens of Baltimore at Lincoln Financial Field for their first preseason game of the year. $79.80-$105.45 7:30 p.m.
Roaring Lions: The good folks at Prohibition know a thing or two about beer and booze, which is why you can trust their judgment on such matters as where to hit up a solid happy hour. How's $2 PBRs and Lionsheads, and $1 off drafts and well drinks grab ya? 5:00-7:00 p.m.
