[Coverage] The Gaslight Anthem, Jimmy Eat World & Against Me! – The Mann

This was one of two shows with this line up. Against Me! opened the show in support of their album Transgender Dysphoria Blues on this beautiful Friday evening. They played to a considerably smaller – but no less enthusiastic – crowd. The highlight of their set was probably their rendition of the popular “I was a Teenage Anarchist.” Jimmy Eat World may be about to kick off their tour for the 10th anniversary of Futures,...

Snarky Puppy Returns to World Cafe Philadelphia for a Late Summer Sellout

Last night’s repeat performance was much anticipated, sold out, and as much fun as the last visit. The first thing you notice about Snarky Puppy’s music is the texture.

This band has an authentic celtic feel to them with bagpipes, tin whistle...
