You just have to wait a couple weeks. But, hey, it’s free.
The Wilmington-based group will headline Northern Liberties’ 2nd Street Festival on Aug. 6, organizers announced today. The festival takes place noon to 10 p.m. and runs from Germantown Ave. to Green St. on 2nd St. in NoLibs.
Featuring three music stages, the festival will also have performances from groups including Trenton-born singer-songwriter Elissa Janelle Velveteen, Philly-based rockers Dr. Beardface & The Spaceman, and Philebrity’s own Joey Sweeney.
Currently, The Spinto Band is out on tour celebrating the re-release of their 2005 break-out album Nice and Nicely Done on Bar/None Records. Their first album to be released via a label aside from the band’s own Spintonic Recordings, Nice and Nicely Done gave the group their first hit with “Oh, Mandy.”
In addition to the musical performances, the 2nd Street Festival will also have food trucks, outdoor bars, beer gardens, and crafts vendors.
Participating food trucks include Nomad Pizza, Weckerly’s Ice Cream, Poi Dog Philly, DumpNRoll and others. Bars and beer gardens at the festival will feature beers from Sly Fox, Sierra Nevada, Balast Point, as well as cocktails featuring Maker’s Mark.
Launched in 2008, the festival attracts an estimated 50,000 attendees annually, according to a release.
