A show like this Friday’s Free at Noon doesn’t come along every week — not only is this week’s concert a rare doubleheader, it’s also a chance to see performances by two of Philly’s best local acts together in one place — and at lunchtime, nonetheless. Slaughter Beach, Dog and Cherry will both perform, and while they’re each fixtures of the Philly scene on their own, lately their careers have been running parallel: both artists released debut LPs in October, and both played Lame-O Records‘ 5th birthday showcase a few weeks back.
Slaughter Beach, Dog is the solo project of Modern Baseball’s Jake Ewald, who’s been releasing music under the moniker for a few years. Shortly after MoBo wrapped up with a few farewell shows, Ewald released Birdie, made the longtime side project more of a full-time thing. Revisit Slaughter Beach, Dog’s Key Studio Session here. Cherry is helmed by Russell Edling, who left us in anticipation of a full-length after emerging with EP Gloom last year. That album, Dumbness, recently premiered on The Key along with an interview with Edling — read that here.
Listen to Birdie and Dumbness below via Bandcamp, and RSVP for Free at Noon here.
