The Quarterly Project releases fall charity compilation (listening party & concert at The Fire 11/21)

The Quarterly Project recently released their Fall compilation, featuring local artists like Pocket, Cruiser, These Polar Opposites, and Molly Rhythm. The bands cover every spectrum of the Philly music scene, from rock n roll to emo, and you can’t help but be impressed. Not only does this project support the diversity of Philly’s music scene, but it works to help young Philadelphians develop the skills to be musicians. The proceeds from this compilation album (and the concert) go to local nonprofit Rock to the Future, which provides free music education to Philadelphia youth.

On Thursday November 21, The Quarterly will hold their fall listening party and concert at The Fire. The eclectic mix of Philadelphia musicians is sure to put on a good show, with music ranging from Family Vacation‘s nostalgic indie rock to Brian Fitzy‘s improvisational electronic funk. Also expect raw sets from the ambient yet powerful Last Full Measure and emo rockers When Ships Collide. Each of these bands have released killer new material in the past year, so make sure to check them out even if you cannot make it to the show.

You can stream the diverse-sounding album below (and on Bandcamp) and you can find more information and tickets here.
