How could you possibly consider leaving the house for a night of live music when you can watch The Black-Eyed Peas perform on TV from the comfort of your own living room? The performance will occur during the Halftime Spectacular Bonanza of this year’s Football MegaMatch, which features two teams who aren’t the Philadelphia Eagles. (Really, that is all you need to know about the game.) However, if you’re not too busy Sunday afternoon waiting in line at the ACME to purchase the very last package of nacho chips (likely Baked Tostitos With A Hint Of Lime) in the greater Philadelphia area, we strongly urge you to consider going to the first Folkadelphia concert at Johnny Brenda’s, which features The Spinning Leaves and Hezekiah Jones. (You can read our interview with Folkadelphia organizer Fred Knittel here.) The Spinning Leaves perform with Hezekiah Jones at 1 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the show are $7.
