XPN2′s Folkadelphia just announced its latest showcase on November 13th featuring Chicago’s Angel Olsen; Philly artists Meg Baird and Brendan Codey to be held at Studio 34. Olsen, formerly of Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s Cairo Gang band, just released her first full-length LP, Half Way Home in September to critical acclaim. Baird also collaborated with Billy’s Cairo Gang, and her 2011 record Seasons on Earth, was well received by critics, with NPR putting her in a league among Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan. Codey, whose EPs and singles are available digitally and as limited-edition cassettes, has had his music described as “a meditative hailstorm, placing the listener right in the eye of the storm looking out” by the Deli Magazine-Philly. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $8.00 in advance; more information can be found here. Watch Olsen’s new video for “Acrobat” below.
