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



Wisconsin six-piece PHOX join us next Friday for a live Free at Noon concert. The indie pop / folk outfit formed in 2011 before releasing a debut EP called Confetti in 2013, followed by their self-titled LP last summer.

PHOX's star has risen quickly over the last few years, having already landed opening slots on tour with Blitzen Trapper, The Lumineers and The Head and The Heart. In March of last year the band recorded a World Cafe session while at SXSW in Austin and performed during the KUTX showcase.

Lauded for frontwoman Monica Martin's sweetly soulful voice and the layered instrumentals of her bandmates, PHOX presents a beautifully subdued yet fun spin on quirky indie pop that can be intimate in small settings (like at Boot & Saddle last July) or command the crowd in larger venues (like at the Tower Theater last December). XPN welcomes PHOX to Union Transfer for their largest Philly headlining gig on Friday, February 13th following the Free at Noon. Catch the free preview concert by RSVPing here or tuning in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.

The Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia is SOLD OUT, as The Lone Bellow performs a live midday concert on Friday.



Brooklyn-based trio The Lone Bellow released their sophomore album, Then Came the Morning, this week, and they join us next Friday for a live Free at Noon concert. Produced by The National's Aaron Dessner, the album showcases their critically-acclaimed bluesy Americana sound. It's wrapped up in hometown melancholy, captured best on tracks like "Diners" and "To the Woods." Lead singer/songwriter Zach Williams' vocals on "Marietta" are haunting yet catchy, a hybrid that proves The Lone Bellow's second album is even more emblematic than the first. The group is no stranger to Philly, having rocked a main stage slot at the 53rd annual Philadelphia Folk Festival in August and an appearance at NonCOMM in 2013. The band headlines Underground Arts on March 24th, but you can catch them live this Friday by RSVPing to the show or tuning in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.
