Nashville supergroup and #XPNfest veterans Trigger Hippy stopped in at World Cafe for a fantastic Free at Noon today, showcasing the rock and roll garnered from singer Joan Osborne’s songwriting career and from Stever Gorman’s and Jackie Greene’s experience with The Black Crowes. The set featured excellent harmonies between Osborne and Greene as well as frequent guitar solo battles between Greene and guitarist Tom Bukovac.
Philadelphia has clearly made a sizable impression on the group, as they’ve played in town twice within a week, and are coming back to the Philly area for a show on on August 16th at Ardmore Music Hall. A note from the band also said that they were treated to excellent donuts this morning, and one can assume this pertains to famous Philly chain Federal Donuts. The group’s self-titled debut album hits stores September 30th.
