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 Blackberry Smoke performs a live midday concert on Friday.

There are no upcoming events.

This week's Free At Noon will feature Southern rock five-piece Blackberry Smoke. Hailing from Atlanta, the group's respected country rock sound has landed them opening acts for Lynyrd Skynrd and Zac Brown Band, among many others. Their latest release, Holding All The Roses, marks 15 years that the five-piece has brought forth a booming mix of rock anthems as well as slower, bluegrass-infused melodies. The band plays the Electric Factory on Friday night, March 20th: don’t miss earlier that day for Free at Noon at World Cafe Live. Join us by RSVPing for this week's performance below or tune in live at 88.5 FM.
