The Friends With Wolves Festival looks like it’s going to be great
Philadelphia is in for a treat come March 14th when the Friends With Wolves Festival moves underway. From 2 until 9 p.m., Underground Arts will host the festival made up entirely of Philadelphia talent including the organizers of the initiative, orchestral folk ensemble Rosu Lup. The lineup also includes local experimental quartet Square Peg Round Hole, art rock collective The Chairman Dances, folk groups Liz & the Lost Boys and Sympathy and the Lion, singer/songwriter Gretchen Lohse, Sierra Cooke and DJ sets from The Key’s own John Vettese.
The 7-hour fest will also spotlight local businesses including Alaura Candles, The Shop Cafe, Narragansett Brewery, and Styles Inspired by Marc among others, who will allow attendees to sample their products during the event. The festival is aimed towards keeping the public invested in the local scene. Lead singer Jonathan from Rosu Lup writes:
