The basement of the First Unitarian Church has been home to members of the Philly punk scene for longer than anyone can remember. But occasionally, when a show calls for a quieter, more intimate sound, musicians emerge from the basement hall and into the chapel itself — the church-y part of the Church, if you will.
That’s just what Roger Harvey plans to do next month — in fact, he’s reserved the Church’s smallest performance space, the side chapel, for a solo show with a stacked opening lineup of local musicians. The show, happening April 20, comes as the latest installment of the Roger Harvey & Family tour, which has previously made stops in Pittsburgh and Chicago with different “family” members joining for each lineup.
The hometown musicians lined up for the Philly show include Greg Barnett of The Menzingers, Augusta Koch of Cayetana, and Anika Pyle of Katie Ellen. See the full list of performers on the poster below.
Harvey’s latest LP, Two Coyotes, was released last fall — listen here. He also recently shared a cover of Phil Ochs’ “What Are You Fighting For?” on Bandcamp, a timely call to action for gun reform. Listen to that below, and find tickets and more information on the show on the XPN Concert Calendar.
