Weekend Warrior, July 22 – 24

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Friday, July 22, 2011

Oh dear, it’s so freaking hot out–so hot, just opening your window to conserve energy will give you a heat stroke. We probably won’t see a break from this scorching weather for a while (thanks climate change!) but if you’re willing to brave the raging sun and possibility of getting shot in Camden (come on, you live in Philly), sweat your way to the 2011 XPoNential Music Festival at Wiggins Park on the Waterfront. The weekend-long fest will feature a slew of scary talented local acts like crowd (and Deli) favorites Sun AirwayNicos Gun (read our hilarious recent interview with NG HERE), Kuf KnotzQueen Electric, buzz-builders Jukebox the Ghost, the smashing team-up of Hezekiah Jones & Andrew Lipke, and the dual-city dwellers Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, who’ll break sonic ground at the Union Transfer unveiling in late September. There are also a few featured national acts that are worthy of a watch, namely Ra Ra Riot, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Keb’ Mo’, Emmylou Harris, and the Smithereens. Just the depth of the diverse lineup should make you forget you’re a UV ray closer to leathery skin, fo’ sure. Wiggins Park at the Waterfront, Mickle Blvd & Riverside Dr. (Camden), Fri – Sun, $20-$65, All Ages
