West Philadelphia Orchestra | Wednesday, August 3, 7 – 9 p.m.

Balkan Brass / European Folk Music / Jazz

With a diverse line-up of professional Philadelphia musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, West Philadelphia Orchestra is a unique live ensemble in today’s auto-tuned musical world. They began playing Romanian ballads, Macedonian folk-dance songs, Bulgarian wedding music, and Klezmer in late 2006, and have continued expanding their repertoire of Eastern European music. The band also plays original tunes which blend other sounds, like jazz and classical, together with traditional Balkan sounds. As much a community as a band, WPO’s performances are celebratory events. With blistering beats and walls of brass, they inspire audiences to hold hands, gyrate, howl, and otherwise slip the yoke of the homogenized culture industry.

Supper is available from Nourish Juice Bar and Cafe. Desserts are available from Nomadic Pies and La Michoacana Ice Cream.

Shytown | Wednesday, August 10, 7 – 9 p.m.

Delaware Based / Pop Rock

From Ralph McKinney’s Memory Lane to the Stone Balloon to the New Jersey shore and back again SHYTOWN has been a crowd favorite locally since the mid-seventies. They are back with 6 outstanding original songs working and sounding better than ever. Come out and get to know them all over again and be sure to visit to hear the latest tunes. Shytown is Jimmy McFadden, Kevin Walsh, Tony Cappella, Ritchie Rubini and Jack Taylor.

Supper is available from Portabello's. Desserts are available from Nomadic Pies and La Michoacana Ice Cream.
