Free At Noon

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Diamond Rugs performs a live midday concert on Friday with a late addition of Ron Gallo to open the show!



This week's Free At Noon will feature rock 'n' roll supergroup Diamond Rugs. The six-piece is composed of members from bands such as Deer Tick, Black Lips, Dead Confederate, Los Lobos, and Six Finger Satellite. Their latest album, Cosmetics, released in February, showcased their dynamic as an experienced crew: guitar, horns, keys, and drums all make for high-energy tracks that translate to engaging live performances. The band plays Ortlieb’s in Philly on March 26th, but you can get a taste of their show this Friday at noon at World Cafe Live. Join us by RSVPing for this week's performance below or tune in live at 88.5 FM.

Opening this show will be Philly Local Ron Gallo.
