NON COMM Thursday - Brandi Carlile and Zella Day

Tune in to the Free At Noon Doubleheader at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Brandi Carlile and Zella Day perform a live midday concert on Thursday.


The Free at Noon set for Thursday, May 14 will feature Brandi Carlile and Zella Day. Singer-songwriter Carlile is known for blending hints of rock 'n' roll, pop, country and folk, and her latest album, The Firewatcher's Daughter, is her most rock-infused release yet. Carlile's recent performance on the Late Show with David Letterman is even more telling of her easygoing stage presence and standout vocals.

Pop powerhouse Zella Day will release her debut album, 'Kicker, in early June. Although often compared to Lana Del Rey and Lykke Li, the LA-via-Arizona singer-songwriter has a sound that's all her own. You can join us by RSVPing below or tune in live at 88.5 FM.
