Old World Beauty w/ Lion Versus at Green Line Café July 15

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Friday, July 15, 2011

There is a distressing artistry to Lion Versus’ latest album, Five Hearts. Released in April, the 7-track album from the local alt-folk outfit can take you on a maddened instrumental ride at a deranged carnival (“The Birds Still Sing”), through the overgrown bittersweet stalks of rustic, bereaved pastors (“I Am [The Springtime]”), and playing along with the bone-bare plucks of jubilant vulnerability (“Flood and Dew”). And this old world beauty will be brought to the intimate space of West Philly’s Green Line Cafe tonight, transporting you from the cracks and sirens of the city to the quiet and expansive stretches of the rural backwoods. Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Philadelphia anymore. Green Line Cafe, 4426 Locust St., 7pm, $5 – $10 donation, All Ages – Annamarya Scaccia
