There’s a gig happening at Villanova later this month that’s well worth a Thursday night trek out to the suburbs. The folks at the university’s radio station, WXVU, along with the Campus Activities Team, have put together a college show cooler than most college shows with a super-stacked lineup of Philly favorites.
The free gig features a real variety of Philly artists, from DIY four-piece Soft Idiot to psych-blues power trio Ill Fated Natives, singer / songwriter-meets-electropop outfit Aphra to rapper Ivy Sole. Stepping into the headlining slot are punk faves Cayetana, who self-released their incredible sophomore album New Kind of Normal earlier this year and recently tore up the stage at Philly Music Fest.
(DISCLOSURE: Key contributor Megan Cooper is on the organizing committee for this gig, and DJs on WXVU. But we’d be covering it regardless — I mean, look at that lineup. Woah. -ed.)
The concert takes place Oct. 19 at Villanova University’s Connelly Center, and admission is free. As the event page promises, it’s sure to be a “real spicy night of tunes.”
Check out the poster for the event below and listen to selections from each of the artists, including “Storm,” from Ivy Sole’s Key Studio Session, and Cayetana’s rooftop performance of “Certain for Miles.”
