Beyond the world of pumpkin spiced everything, October means The Fire‘s annual Northern Liberties Fall Festival, which is set to happen this Saturday from noon to 8:30. Yes, you’ll find pumpkin carving and food there, but it will also feature incredible music from Philly’s rock, punk and soul communities.

Among the talented performers playing the free concert is local rapper, MH the Verb who will be celebrating the release of his new record alongside Philly blues rockers Ill Fated Natives, the funky RoseMary Fiki, and DJ Sylo headlining the night.

The music will continue at The Fire with a late night show featuring XPN favorite and recent studio session guest, Joie Kathos alongside Justina and hip-hop trio Chalk & The Beige Americans.

So maybe hold on back on another trip to Eastern State Penitentiary and hit up The Fire for a day full of good vibes and even better music. For more information on Northern Liberties Festival click here. Check out music from some of the performers below.
