Hurry, Joshua Chase Miller, and Keith Goodwin of Good Old War, are among the artists playing the second Rock the Troc benefit for Rock to the Future
If you follow Radio 104.5’s Cole Selleck on social media, you probably know that 70% of the content he posts is about something called Rock The Troc (with some percentage of the remainder being about Applebee’s Quizzo). If you’re unfamiliar, RTT is a benefit concert Selleck launched last year at famed Chinatown venue The Trocadero to help fund public education in Philly, and today he just announced the lineup of the second edition.
Shane Henderson of local alt-rockers Valencia will return to top the bill for a second year on Saturday, May 4th. This year, Henderson is joined by co-headliner Ace Enders of Hammonton, NJ pop-punk faves The Early November. While their solo sets will no doubt be fun, we’re also excited for the benefit undercard, which features power pop trio Hurry (veterans of #XPNFest 2018), singer-songwriter Joshua Chase Miller, and Keith Goodwin of Good Old War and Found Wild.
This year’s beneficiary is Rock to the Future, the music-centric after-school program that works with under-served youth in Philadelphia, and was founded in 2010 by former Conversations With Enemies members Joshua and Jessica Craft.
Tickets for the Rock the Troc benefit are on sale now, more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, listen to music from each of the artists, and watch a doc on Rock The Troc 2018.
