Opening for Antigone Rising at the Locks

The Locks, 4417 Main Street, Philadelphia

Thrilled that Donna and I, joined by the amazing Bob Beach on flute/harmonica, will be opening for this highly regarded regional music force. (Show start 8:00; doors 7:30) Antigone Rising-best known for their three part harmonies and songs that speak to the heart, and in more than 20 years as one of America's hardest-working band’s, Antigone Rising has established a far-reaching reputation for sticking to their instincts. While the all-female New York natives live performances have earned the long-term devotion of fans, Antigone Rising's passionate social conscience continues to manifest itself in the group's tireless activism.

In 2014, the band launched the ambitious nonprofit organization Girls Rising, whose live presentations reflect the same passionate belief that drives the trio's music. Throughout the year, Girls Rising partners with local school districts and youth centers to create programming that's designed to inspire and empower young girls and LGBTQ youth through live performances, presentations and workshops. The band also presents the annual Girls Rising Music Festival and Game Changer Awards, now in its sixth year. The festival showcases female artists the band has mentored, as well as giving them opportunities to perform alongside national Grammy winning artists. Girls Rising also awards scholarships to deserving girls established through private donations as well as celebrity grants to local youth created by Melissa Etheridge, Joan Jett, Carnie Wilson and most recently, Paula Cole.

The band’s activism is reflected in much of Antigone Rising’s latest work, as the trio continues releasing singles to download and stream throughout the year. 2019’s “It’s Gonna Be Alright” is an optimistic spin during a time of political unrest. The band’s next release, “Avalanche,” is an anthem for young girls and women everywhere to stand up and be heard.
