When Kevin Bacon isn't busy starring in legendary movies like Mystic River or Apollo 13, he's playing in his folk rock band, The Bacon Brothers, with his brother, Michael Bacon. The Philadelphia-born duo released their first album, Forosoco, in 1997, and have released six more albums since, including a live performance at the John Harm's Center for the Arts in Englewood, New Jersey back in 2003, and a greatest hits album called Philadelphia Road - The Best of the Bacon Brothers. Catch them Friday afternoon, July 11th, when they perform as a part of XPN's Free At Noon series at the World Cafe Live. Also, be sure to catch another intimate performance with the band when they headline the Sellersville Theater that night. Ticketing information can be found here.
