Free At Noon

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



Saratoga Springs trio The Figgs join us next Friday for a live Free at Noon concert. The garage rockers formed in the late 80s, going on to release a strong collection of studio records that expanded with the debut of Other Planes of Here earlier this year. In addition to building their own career The Figgs have acted as backing band to Graham Parker and The Replacements' Tommy Stinson. Frontman Pete Donnelly, who is now based in the Philadelphia area, performed with Shelby Lynne at XPN's NonCOMMvention last week. To join us at the free performance, RSVP here or tune in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.
