Here at The Key we love local music every day. Today is extra special because the folks at Loves Local Music are celebrating the inaugural Philadelphia Local Music Day. In our interview with Loves Local Music founder Monika Julien, she explained “the primary mission of Loves Local Music is to build relationships with musicians, artists, businesses, innovators, and other visionaries to organize creative events that give local Philadelphia musicians more exposure, bring awareness to Philadelphia’s local music scene, and make local music more accessible to the community.” Today, many local businesses around the city will be playing the music of five bands, putting the spotlight on Work Drugs, Bandname, Buried Beds, Cheers Elephant and The Extraordinaires. Some of the businesses participating include Johnny Brenda’s, The Lola Bean, Repo Records, Trophy Bikes North, The Marvelous! Music record store, Federal Donuts and more. Today at 1 p.m. The Extraordinaires will be playing a free show at The Rocket Cat Cafe. All participating businesses will also be handing out a download card with a song from each of the bands. Thanks to the bands and to Loves Local Music, you can download the five song sampler here.
