Roots rocker JD McPherson returns to Philly this summer for a show at World Cafe Live on Friday, July 12th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 15th at 10 AM. Last summer, McPherson rocked it up at WXPN’s XPoNential Music Festival. Watch a video of JD and the band performing “Farmer John” from the festival.
JD McPherson just released a new holiday song, “Twinkle (Little Christmas Lights)” that you can listen to below. He’ll be performing the song on Jay Leno on Thursday, December 13th and the song will be available on iTunes on December 11th. “Twinkle” is a full on stomper; equal parts Little Richard and Fats Domino rock and roll that’s non-stop fun. You can hear this song, plus lot’s more new and old holiday music on our new 24-7 Jingle Jams stream on XPN2 that you can listen to here. Don’t forget to mark your calendars to listen to Robert Drake’s 19th Annual Night Before, a full 24 hours of eclectic holiday music, starting Midnight on December 24th.
