Free at Noon Flashback: Fans sing along with Philly musician Kenn Kweder
Philadelphia local Kenn Kweder brought highenergy and an entertaining show to World Cafe Live for today’s Free at Noon concert. Backed by the band The Hipster Mind Tricks, Kweder performed a set for fans to dance and sing to.
The Upper Darby-native is no stranger to WXPN, having been a figure in the Philadelphia music scene since the 70’s, which brought out fans new and old to the Free at Noon scene. Kweder just recently was just featured in a documentary about his career and old group Kenn Kweder and The Secret Kidds.
“You probably won’t know this song, but it’ll turn into one of my own,” Kweder said just before starting a mashup of Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” which launched into his own “Heroin” and urging the crowd to sing along. The set contained songs new and old, including his newest “Susie Said So” which was just released earlier this month, and fan-favorites like “Remember Me.” Putting on an interactive performance, he made sure to get involved with those in the crowd, even by hopping off the stage and walking through the floor towards the end of his set.
