This event is 21 and over
Formed in 2012 and based in Philadelphia, Delco Pacers have been described by WXPN’s The Key as having “a penchant for reflective, melodic songs that blend jangling acoustic instrumentation with rumbling amplifiers and thumping drums, while carrying hints of Ryan Adams, Recovering the Satellites-era Counting Crows and late 80s R.E.M.”
Led by lead-singer/guitarist Jonathan Pitts, Delco Pacers feature Pavlo Demkiv on drums and Evan Dick on bass. After releasing their debut EP, Riddlewood, in 2012, Delco Pacers have spent the last two years playing shows along the East Coast while preparing new material for their debut full-length LP. Stereo Streets, which was recorded & engineered by Mike Lust (Tight Phantomz, Lustre King) at Chicago’s King Size Sound Labs in July of 2013, is slated to be released in the fall of 2013.
Morning River Band
Inspired equally by encounters with George Jones and Jim Beam, Philadelphia's Morning River Band sings simple songs of drinking, dying, and divorce, and tells tall tales of broken bodies, broken hearts, and broken minds. The music of Morning River Band looks forward through the past, documenting life not as it was, but as it's always been.

The Naked Sun is currently promoting the release of their debut EP, Space, Place and Time. Meanwhile, they've begun work on an as-yet-unnamed follow up EP with a targeted release in Spring 2014.
