Last week, Speedy Ortiz‘s Sadie Dupuis launched a last-minute campaign to get Gritty, the new Flyers mascot, to make an appearance at the band’s sold-out show with Liz Phair Friday at Union Transfer. (Phair supported the effort, too.) Alas, Gritty was a no-show, but the show was otherwise fantastic, and Dupuis will have another chance to win over Philly’s favorite orange monster next month — Speedy Ortiz just announced a hometown headlining show at the First Unitarian Church on November 28.
Speedy Ortiz is currently touring behind their newest album, Twerp Verse, which was released this past spring. Give it a listen below. The band celebrated the record release with a “dizzying” PhilaMOCA show in July — read The Key’s review here.
Tickets for the Church gig are on sale now, and Palberta is lined up to open the show. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
