Marco Benevento

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Marco Benevento performs a live midday concert on Friday.



Multi-genre artist Marco Benevento will take the stage this week at our Free At Noon. Starting off as a jazz pianist, the New Jersey-born musician has expanded his sound to an eclectic mix of styles including post-rock, experimental and indie rock. Currently on a U.S. tour, Benevento is making the rounds in Philadelphia this weekend, with a show at Johnny Brenda's following his Free At Noon. He will then play another show at the venue the following night before taking off for Brooklyn. His latest album, Swift, released in September, explored Benevento's vocal capabilities mixed with an indie rock sound that garnered him praise for experimenting with new sounds and textures. Join us this Friday for Marco Benevento’s midday concert at World Cafe Live by RSVPing at XPN.ORG, or tune in at XPN.org or 88.5 FM.

IMPORTANT NOTE: World Cafe Live will NOT be open for lunch tomorrow after the Free At Noon on Friday, December 12
