Dr Dog

Our first time ever Free at Midnight with Dr Dog at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Friday evening is SOLD OUT.

Every Friday since 2005, WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia have played host to free at noon and quite frankly, we decided after 13 years that it was time to shake things up! This week in lieu of Free at Noon, XPN presents for the first time ever, a FREE AT MIDNIGHT featuring a live performance with Dr. Dog! Doors open at 10pm on Friday 4/27, featuring Guest DJ’s leading up to the show! You must be 18 years old or older to attend this show.

Dr. Dog has a brand new album called Critical Equation and plays Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing on June 23rd. You can visit XPN's Concert Calendar for all the details. Can’t make it? Listen on your radio, the XPN app, or watch the live Vuhaus video webcast at
