THEME: Alter Egos
Release your secret inner White Duke, Chris Gaines, Sasha Fierce — whoever's hiding in there! There's a long tradition of performers assuming another identity to explore material the artist they are known as (or accustomed to being) would nevereverever do. You are free! Do it!
Our resident spelunker of the dangerous caverns of comedy, Ian Insect is preparing for a special two-show night on Fri Jul 21
Early: Ian Insect Presents «An Easier Way to Breathe» a Live Recording!
Late: Ian Insect Presents «Any Crisis Will Do» a Live Recording!
If you are a careful detective, you will deduce that there is a live recording involved in those shows.
Sparkle Pony is fun, refreshing, creative and difficult not to love. This little Bluegrass, Newgrass and Folk quartet has quickly earned the reputation for being one of the most well polished, high quality bands on the Philly Folk scene right now.
AC regulars will recognize Sarah Larsen from Ladybird on Violin & Vocals — Ladybird gave a show-stopping feature set last summer, still trying to get them in for a full set at the Funhouse!
Pronounced Ma-tee-chick, Maticic is a solo singer/songwriter from Detroit in the Indie Folk/Americana vein currently touring on his release 'Independence Moon'
AcoustiCafe's open stage intends to create a supportive environment for artists to network with their peers, test new music or haul out old favorites and most importantly, extend their reach in the local scene.
