Free At Noon

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



Philadelphia duo DRGN King will take some time after a short east coast tour to stop by the Free at Noon show at World Cafe Live upstairs on Jan. 9. The indie-psychedelic group released their sophomore album, Baltimore Crush, in October 2014. Baltimore Crush strays away from the atmospheric electronic sounds of their debut album, Paragraph Nights, and includes more soothing choruses from Angelella with Reynold's power-packed beats. Dominic Angelella and Brent "Ritz" Reynolds come from different backgrounds. In 2009, Angelella, a Baltimore native, was in a string of Philly projects ranging from high-energy punk bands to playing guitar for a hip-hop group. Reynolds was working as a hip-hop producer in South Philly, cutting tracks for various artists like Philly hip-hop group, The Roots. The twosome met during a recording session and decided to collaborate their backgrounds into an experimental outfit. If you can't make the show, you can listen to the performance on 88.5 XPN or online at XPN.org
