A Weekend of Music! Local Music! Huzzah!

So I'll be hanging out at Lancaster's First Friday this weekend, but there are some great concerts going on throughout Central PA. Here are your choices:

XPN Welcomes David Byrne to the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center in York. 
Mr. Byrne is touring in support of his collaborative effort with Brian Eno. I was a big fan of the Byrne/Eno album My Life in the Bush of Ghosts back in college (early 80s) and this new album of work picks up where they left off. Good stuff.

John Legend & Raphael Saadiq at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State

Friday, 12/5
The Sleeping World and The Greatest Funeral Ever at the Abbey Bar, Harrisburg

The Sketties & Indian Summer Jars at Bube's Brewery, Mount Joy
The Sleeping World and The Sketties are two of my favorite local bands from Lancaster, so you can't go wrong with either show! And don't forget there will be plenty of live, local music throughout Lancaster as part of First Friday.

Saturday, 12/6
XPN Welcomes Iris Dement to the Harrisburg Academy

The Sleeping World at McCleary's Pub, Marietta
The Sleeping World at one of their regular local haunts. A can't miss night!

Farewell Flight at Messiah College.
This is part of Messiah's free B-Sides concerts. Doesn't start until 10p, otherwise I would be there. Love these guys and the show should be good. These guys tour so much that it isn't often they can be seen on their home turf.

So bundle up, get out of the house, and go see some live music. Your ears will thank you.
