Tin Bird Choir, A Fistful of Sugar, Sweetbriar Rose and Kicking Down Doors are playing a benefit show this Friday at Steel City Coffee House in Phoenixville.
'It's First Friday in Phoenixville, and the town really comes alive,' says Heather Hurlock of Tin Bird Choir. 'We wanted to bring in some of our favorite Philly local bands and really make it a party. A Fistful of Sugar just released their new album Perspicacity, and it will be amazing to hear this band in such an intimate setting. They have six harmonizing vocalists and they really swing! Sweetbriar Rose also released an album recently, Cultivar, and their sultry, rootsy, gypsy folk music will take you to another world. And Kicking Down Doors is a new band ready to make their mark. Their singer Autumn Walden is a real talent and she and their guitarist Ernie Tokay have been writing some great songs together.'
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music starts at 7:30.
'We're psyched to be back at Steel City,' says Hurlock. 'It's basically our home-town club and we love the vibe there. We also want to make sure we have enough room for all of the music to be heard, so we're kicking things off at 7:30 sharp with a set from Kicking Down Doors! The early bird gets the ear worm.'
The night is a benefit for Phoenixville Area Community Services (PACS).
'We really wanted to do something to raise awareness for PACS. They're a local organization that helps the working poor of Phoenixville with everything from food, housing, utilities, and health needs. Their mission is to empower the people to achieve self-sufficiency. Our song Working Poor resonates with people for a reason. There are a lot of us (working poor) and we need to help each other out when we can,' says Hurlock.
PACS will be at the show accepting non-perishable food donations and a portion of the evening's proceeds will go straight to them.
