Song Dogs - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Song Dogs
Featured in both the New York Times and the Philadelphia Inquirer with a sound often compared to Neil Young, The Band, and the Allman Brothers, Song Dogs is a 6-piece Americana rock band bringing prairie-heavy rock and railroad tone to the city of Brotherly Love.
Oldermost - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Oldermost. A handle ambiguous enough to fit a band that tends to wiggle out of your hands if held too restrictively to one specific genre or influence. While listening, you may feel at home yet you quickly realize that is somewhere you have not been before. The landscape is familiar, but fresh—a warm place that draws you in, a beautiful and melancholic flame that attracts. Oldermost’s music gives you the impression that band continually reaches their hand into some version of the American Songbook, some broad tradition of American music constantly subjected to recurrent revision. There is an ever-present quality of rock and roll inclinations in Oldermost’s music and they are able to hint at nostalgic without stumbling into kitsch.
Free Range Folk - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Free Range Folk
Nine years ago on a farm in Pennsylvania, friends sang songs around a weekly campfire. The songs were as diverse as the weeds in the unkept corners of the fields. First described as a "Free Range Folk" band, now the name.

"This is a tremendous album of country, folk, hillbilly, alt. country and classic country rock all blended into a delicious stew that has an excellent spicy edginess to it. Everything this band plays is believable and full of conviction, whether on speeded up electrified alt. country rock or mellow ballads with even the latter having a little bite to them. At times they are even a little reminiscent of country rock pioneers such as the New Riders of the Purple Sage with a little ramshackleness that is so essential to this brew but only possible in a band of the highest quality as this seven piece so obviously are."
