Tomorrow, my favorite local festival kicks off just over the bridge from Philly, in Camden – the XPoNential Music Festival! If you’re a longtime reader of this blog you’ve heard me rave about this festival, that I’ve attended every year since it started. WXPN is the non-commercial, member-supported radio service of the University of Pennsylvania – and my go-to for music discovery. Read More
This past weekend I attended WXPN’s annual three-day music festival over in Wiggins Park Camden – The XPoNential Music Festival. It was a great time as always – despite the oppressive heat there was a nice breeze on the river and the amazing music made it well worth it! Read More
i had the opportunity to watch two bands i love – edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros and dr. dog – from the area between the stage and the crowd, and when i was able to keep myself from dancing around all over the place i managed to get some photos :)

fridays are always a little tough at work this time of year, with it being so nice out and so close to the weekend, so what better way to help pass the day than a lunchtime concert? we snuck out today at noon, hopped in the car and made the quick drive over to WXPN for the local natives free at noon show – something the station does every friday at world café live. we were instantly transported from work mode to music mode as we took our seats up in the mezzanine level (thanks xpn!) and let the tunes take over. this band blows me away- they sound better live than on the album and the songs “airplanes” and “who knows who cares” gave me chills. i knew “sun hands” would be amazing live as well and it sure was- they put everything into that song no matter how many times they have played it. this was my first time seeing them live and it definitely will not be the last- i have already got tickets to see them at first unitarian church in philly this august!
