    I saw The Head and the Heart when they opened for the Decemberists in Atlantic City- they were quite an act to follow. I haven’t seen a band that pours so much into their performance in a long time. Their music hits me with emotion and feeling so hard.

    So, as we originally posted, we only had one pair of tickets to give away for the Philly F/M BBQ Concert. But, given the ridiculous response this post received, we were able to secure another nine pairs of tickets! Emails will be going out to all 10 of our winners right now, so please keep an eye on your inbox. Once you’ve replied and confirmed that you’ll be attending the show, you’ll be added to the guest list at Will Call. Thanks again to everyone who entered—all 100+ of you! 

  110. Mellow

    I won a pair of tickets for the Philly F/M Fest from The Key at WXPN. Psyched to see The Head and The Heart! Thanks The Key!
