Friday 7/12: The Felice Brothers at World Café Live

Fresh off the release of their new album Valley of Abandoned Songs, The Felice Brothers are coming to World Café Live.

Nevertheless, it’s one of their most cohesive projects, made all the more special by the fact that the songs were recorded live in a 19th-century church.

With Kori Gardner on keyboard and vocals and Jason Hammel on drums and vocals, their songs are bound to get you moving, and The Foundry’s intimate space will make you feel part of the family. // 8 p.m., $35, AA – E.Z.P.
