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



This week, J Mascis will be joining us at our Free at Noon concert at World Cafe Live on Friday. The former frontman of 90s indie legends Dinosaur (Jr.) has branched out on his solo work over the years. His alluring new album, Tied To A Star, was released earlier this year and has attracted much attention from critics and fans. His vocal timbre is undeniably reminiscent of Eddie Vedder, but his solo songs take lighter, poppier approach. In addition to this week's Free At Noon, Mascis will also appear with Purling Hiss at World Cafe Live on September 25th. Tickets and more information can be found on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Hard Working Americans join us this Friday at World Cafe Live for our Free At Noon concert. The collective of alt-country legends was formed in 2013 and has most recently released its self-titled first album, which reinvents classics such as Frankie Miller's "Backland Farmer" and Rawlings and Welch's "Wrecking Ball." The supergroup features singer Todd Snider, Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, Neal Casal of Chris Robinson Brotherhood, drummer Duane Trucks, younger brother to Derek, and Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi on keyboards. Hard Working Americans will be in Philadelphia to play the TLA on South Street Friday, September 19th, but join us for their live midday concert on the air, online and at World Cafe Live.
