Beyond The Bars Fundraiser w/The Districts, Hop Along's Frances Quinlan & More at WCL April 17

World Cafe Live is hosting a fundraiser for Beyond The Bars, featuring rising local artists such as The Districts and Hop Along’s Frances Quinlan. All ticket sales will benefit the Beyond The Bars program, which provides musical education and instruments for incarcerated youth in Greater Philadelphia. The program seeks to empower these disadvantaged young men and women by equipping them with an outlet for creative expression and a sense of agency while they grapple with the frequently disorienting and dissociative bureaucracy of the criminal justice system. In support of this righteous cause, The Districts will take to the stage on Sunday evening with their universally adored, weary-plodding folk-pop/rock. Frances Quinlan will jolt you awake with her electric and hugely dynamic voice. Also pitching in for the cause will be Lushlife (DJ Set), Queen of Jeans, Ben Arnold, Milton, and The Bul Bey. World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St, 4pm, $20, All Ages. - Bryce Woodcock

Weekend Warrior, April 15 - 17

On Saturday, Free Cake For Every Creature celebrates the arrival of their LP Talking Quietly of Anything With You, via Double Double Whammy, with a release show at Girard Avenue DIY space/batting cages, Everybody Hits. The Katie Bennett-led crew explores the daily adjustments that often characterize finding one’s place as an emerging adult, while adapting to a new place. With an invigorating sense of spoken/sung sincerity, united by a jovial, similarly straightforward sense of instrumentation, the songs’ endearing relatable stories come across loud and clear, while their hushed vocal quality entrusts the listener. Cut from a like-minded cloth Carmen Perry, a.k.a. Addie Pray, hits you with a dose of intimate adventure, while the uninhibited, melodic poetry of Hello Shark aches and empowers, flipping the script on self-awareness. The experimental folk of Microsoft Saint completes the local bill. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $7, All Ages - Michael Colavita
