November is almost here and we’ve got a killer lineup for you! Check out some of the highlights below & on our Spotify playlist.
JD McPherson makes his WCL return on November 5! The rural Oklahoma native has drawn inspiration from everything from Little Richard to the Wu-Tang-Clan to Led Zeppelin, giving him a unique retro sound that lies somewhere between rock & roll, R&B, and 1950s rockabilly.
Favorite Tracks: Lucky Penny, Let The Good Times Roll, North Side Gal
Coming to our upstairs stage on November 8 are JD Eicher & Sawyer Fredericks! Eicher has been playing guitar since age 12 and has four albums and a live EP full of catchy pop-rock tunes. Fredericks is a contemporary folk singer-songwriter who won the 8th season of The Voice in 2015, making him the youngest winner in series history at age 16. This co-headline show will be a fun night of music you will not want to miss!
Favorite Tracks from JD Eicher: Two By Two, The Little Bit, Aaron, This Heart
Favorite Tracks from Sawyer Fredericks: What I’ve Done, Not Coming Home, Take It All, This Fire
Come check out Mary Lambert on our upstairs stage November 14! Lambert taught herself to play piano and write songs at age 6 as an escape from her traumatic and abusive household. Her emotional and revealing songs speak of the struggles she faced as a child, and her live shows are described as “safe spaces where crying is acceptable and even encouraged.”
Favorite Tracks: She Keeps Me Warm, Know Your Name, So Far Away, Secrets, When You Sleep
On November 22 we welcome Philly up-and-comers, the Chris Paterno Band! This energetic eight-piece is a little bit of rock and roll and funk and soul, all rolled into one. Come dance the night away while supporting local music!

Loudon Wainwright III returns on November 29! With his witty, self-mocking lyrical style, Wainwright has recorded 23 studio albums since 1970. Wainwright’s songs are often deeply personal with a twist of humor, making his live shows as entertaining are they are meaningful.
