Six Philly artists that will benefit suicide prevention at the Winter Doldrums Festival
It’s that time of year again where the best part of winter – the holiday season – is over. Now it’s just cold and snowy out with nothing but Spring to look forward to (except Valentine’s day if you have a significant other, but everybody knows V-Day is overrated). But not to fear, the 3rd Annual Winter Doldrums Festival is here to cure your lack of cheer!
The crazy-good lineup has a blizzard’s worth of talent, and to top it off, it’s all for a good cause. All proceeds from the show will enter the pockets of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention‘s Greater Philadelphia Chapter. So make sure to come down to the World Cafe Live on Walnut Street tomorrow from noon to midnight to cure your case of the winter blues.
You can purchase tickets to the 12-hour all ages show, which cost between $18-$21*, here, and read on for six of The Key’s favorites from this 20-artist lineup.
Rock and roll four-piece Divers are getting ready to release their debut full-length Holding Bodies.
The ornately poppy Vilebred features Sammy Vile, brother of Kurt and known locally as Jello Man for his Jello-shot entrepreneurship.
Philly’s No Good Sister will bring a bit of Nashville to World Cafe Live via big voices and tangy harmonies.

Black Horse Hotel blends folkified banjo and cello with an uptempo rock underbelly.

See? The winter isn’t too bad after all.
