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



Philadelphia folk rockers June Rich make a triumphant return to the stage for a live Free at Noon performance next Friday. It's been twenty years since the band performed live together, but the five-piece is getting back together for a handful of shows to celebrate the anniversary of their 1995 debut LP.

Coming out of a tight-nit musical community based in Manayunk and the Grape Street Pub, June Rich was one of the city's most in-demand bands during the nineties. They earned a Philadelphia Magazine Best Band in Philadelphia award, performed at the opening night of the Electric Factory, played a main stage slot at the 1996 Philadelphia Folk Fest (the only local band to do so that year) and appeared on Mountain Stage.

Join us for this special Free at Noon with June Rich at World Cafe Live by RSVPing here or tuning in at 88.5 FM / XPN.org. June Rich performs at The Ardmore Music Hall on Saturday, June 20th. http://www.ardmoremusic.com/event/814973-xpn-welcomes-june-rich-ardmore/

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



Soulful Syracuse singer-songwriter Martin Sexton will join us on Friday for this week's Free at Noon concert. After breaking out on the Boston scene in the early 90s, Sexton - a former busker - went on to release nine records that blurred the boundaries between folk, R&B and rock and roll. His most recent release is called Mixtape Of The Open Road, and he performs at World Cafe Live in Wilmington on Friday, May 29th. Join him earlier in the day for a preview of the show at our Free at Noon concert. Check it out in person or tune in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.
