Published on the Deli Philadelphia – Thursday, February 16, 2012

Since opening Tuesday at The Fire, the 2012 Northern Liberties Winter Music Fest has seen its fair share of those killer gifted acts, like Paper Masques and North Lawrence Midnight Singers, that, with every chord, help morph the Philly music scene into a newer, more cutting-edge breed. For its Thursday and Friday installments (and until it closes Sunday), the fest will continue to showcase those beloved local acts. Thursday’s set will have Toy Soldiers‘  Ron Gallo crooning his solo work (look out for new Toy Soldiers material – recording started in January), windswept six-piece Spirit & Dust squandering your soul, and Jersey’s brusque folk-meets-Southern bar gang, River City Extension, taking you to end of the dusty road (their sophomore album, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Your Anger, drops June 5). And on Friday, you can count on the HomophonesCircadian Rhythms, and Early Ape to offer a phonically-diverse night of freaked out acoustics, pop-punk missives, and melodic irony. Can’t say you have the wintertime blues anymore, can ya? The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave, 8pm, $10  21+ (Thurs & Fri) – Annamarya Scaccia
