No surprise here: we love to play. We take a lot of gigs in a lot of places – bars, coffee shops, bookstores, festivals, house parties, even rodeos1. And one of the benefits of playing so much is that we meet a ton of great musicians.
Two of those musicians are Gina Martinelli and Peter Marinari of Arcati Crisis. In addition to having killer last names, Gina and Peter make wonderful, unique music, an indescribable blend of styles about quirky subjects like King Arthur’s romantic dilemmas and what not to do at bachelor parties. We met in Philly as we played one of our Primary Stages shows – Gina saw us and had a feeling we’d make a great double bill.
We think so, too. So we’re gonna prove it at Fergie’s Pub at 1214 Samson Street in Philadelphia. It’s a great place for a gig – our only one before our huge Album Release Party at World Cafe Live in Wilmington.
The show starts at 10:00 – we’re splitting the night, so each band will take two half-hour sets. We’d love to see you there!
WHAT: Hot Breakfast! and Arcati Crisis at Fergie’s Pub
WHO: Hot Breakfast! and Arcati Crisis. This isn’t difficult.
WHERE: Fergie’s Pub, 1214 Sansom Street, Philadelphia.
WHEN: Friday, May 10, 10 PM – 1 AM
TICKETS: No charge! But order expensive drinks – that’s how we get paid.
FOOD/DRINK: They’ve got food! They’ve got drink!
ACCESS: We’re pretty sure it’s 21+, and there are stairs to negotiate. Plenty of parking in garages, or a few laps around the block should yield a spot on the street. It’s in a cute section of town; we dig it there.
