Golden Bloom Plays Philadelphia F/M Showcase with Robbers On High Street and Grant Hart of Husker Du


When power pop worlds collide, magic is made. Golden Bloom’s Shawn Fogel will play a selection of Golden Bloom and Canadian Invasion songs with Philadelphia’s Canadian Invasion at the World Café Live on September 26th as part of the Philadelphia F/M Festival. Both bands are known for socially conscious, catchy pop, so audiences are guaranteed a fun, high energy show. Also playing the Green Room Music Source Showcase are Husker Du’s Grant Hart, Robbers On High Street, The Melismatics, Pearl and the Beard and REMMA.

Golden Bloom is back in the studio with Peter Katis (Frightened Rabbit, The National, and Tokyo Police Club), to produce tracks on the follow up to Fan the Flames, which was compared favorably to Summerteeth-era Wilco, The New Pornographers, and Big Star. Shawn Fogel has also been busy with Neutral Uke Hotel, a side project that has been taking the world by storm with live performances of Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over The Sea which is played entirely on ukulele.

Canadian Invasion’s latest album, Three Cheers for the Invisible Hand, is an ode to suburbia filled with character sketches and infectious melodies. The band, which possesses Brit-pop sensibilities, is considered Philadelphia’s best power pop band.

THE PHILADELPHIA FILM AND MUSIC FESTIVAL or "PHILLY F/M" for short is a four-day festival taking place at over 30 music and film venues, with free outdoor stages, day parties and a record fair. Philly F/M will take place on Thursday, Sept 23 - Sunday, Sept 26th, 2010 and will feature a wide variety of regional, national and international musicians and films. The festival strives to be an annual event that effectively merges independent film and music in new and exciting ways. Instead of segregating them to different venues, the festival will combine the aural and the visual in dynamic settings to engage and foster new audiences for both mediums. More information on the festival can be found at http://www.phillyfmfest.com/.
