Philadelphia is no stranger to having free and amazing concerts in it’s parks. So it was only natural for Penn Treaty Park to jump on the bandwagon. After all, since it has a wonderful view that overlooks the Philadelphia Water Front, it might just be the best setting for discovering new music. add it the fact that it hooks up very different music offerings throughout it’s 6 week run, and will be going on from 7-9pm, and it’s destined to be great.
