After ringing in 2018 at Fishtown’s Frankford Hall with local buddies Commonwealth Choir, Philly’s Vacationer — the electronic pop project of bassist and songwriter Kenny Vasoli — just announced that they will headline Boot & Saddle’s Peace and Noise benefit series on Wednesday, January 24th. They’ll join opening acts Palmas and Younger me on a show that will raise money for Project H.O.M.E., an outreach and advocacy nonprofit that helps Philadelphia’s homeless. Tickets for the 21+ show are $15 and on sale now; more information can be found here.
For Boot & Saddle, it’s another installment in their month of giving back to the community. The other two Peace and Noise benefit shows — Cayetana’s gig supporting the Attic Youth Center on 1/17, and The Wonder Years’ show supporting Rock to the Future — have both sold out (in the case of TWY, within minutes of going onsale). But there are plenty of other charitable and community-minded concerts on their calendar.
