Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Arkells and Jim Boggia and Friends perform a live midday concert on Friday Toronto’s Arkells are arguably among the best indie groups that hail from our neighbors up north. Just this year the band took home their second Group of the Year Juno Award for their album, High Noon. The band first made waves back in 2008 with their single “Oh, The Boss Is Coming!," a song which features their knack for catchy chorus’s and infectious indie-rock hooks. They headline MilkBoy on Saturday, October 10th, so Free at Noon is your chance to catch them early.

Following Arkell’s set, Jim Boggia and friends will play a special tribute in honor of what would have been 75th birthday.

RSVP to reserve your spot for this week's Free at Noon in Philadelphia, or tune-in at 88.5FM and worldwide at XPN.org.
