It will swing by the Philadelphia Record Exchange‘s new location on Frankford Avenue in Fishtown on Wednesday, October 9th, from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
In other venues, this oddity of Jack White’s label has used its built-in PA system to stage pop-up concerts – at SXSW this year, Philly garage-blues trio Lantern played a fiery set in an East Austin parking lot to an eager crowd of vinyl junkies. According to Record Exchange affiliate Richie Charles (of local label Richie Records / TestosterTunes), “We’re not sure what to expect other than new rare records sold out of a converted food truck.” But it’s also worth noting that the Exchange is run by Jacy Webster of Strapping Fieldhands, and longtime staffer “Harmonica” Dan Balcer has jammed with scene luminaries from Chris Forsyth and Birds of Maya to Kurt Vile. So really, anything can happen.
Below, check out a video of White playing “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” at the Rolling Record Store; he’s one dude we’re in all likelihood not going to see Wednesday (but who knows, right?). After the jump, listen to an assortment of tracks from Philadelphians we think would be great to see perform.
