Free At Noon

Hear a Free At Noon Concert at 12noon ET from WXPN. Broadcast from the stage of World Cafe Live in Philadelphia

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

This week, WXPN presents a live midday concert featuring Philadelphia pop rock band Cheerleader at World Cafe Live. The five piece's debut LP, The Sunshine of Your Youth, is the perfect soundtrack to any summer. If you didn't get the opportunity to see them at this year's XPN Fest, then this Friday the 24th is the perfect chance to catch them for free. Formed in 2012 by vocalists and guitarists Joe Haller and Chris Duran, the band quickly caught the attention of national outlets with early demos. Their first full-length was release on May 19th, and it's been receiving consistent airplay at WXPN ever since. If you can't catch this Free at Noon, Cheerleader will also be playing at the TLA on September 12th. You can hear the show on the air at 88.5 or you can see it in person by RSVP'ing below.
