Event

Inner Monologues: A Benefit Concert featuring Johnny Showcase & The Lefty Lucy Cabaret with special guests Chris Kasper (solo acoustic) and Birdie Busch
Friday May 2nd , 8pm (Door opens at 7pm). Connie's Ric Rac, 1132 South 9th St. Phila PA 19147

Philadelphia based nonprofit Yes! And... Collaborative Arts equips children and young people with the tools to be better learners, to believe in themselves and to realize their dreams through the work of creating collaboratively with peers and professional artists. They spend most of their time with kids living in low-income neighborhoods in and around the Philadelphia area, but believe that collaborative arts education is important for all ages, everywhere. Yes! And... never turns a child away because of money. This concert event will raise funds to send kids to camps throughout Philadelphia this summer.

Johnny Showcase & The Lefty Lucy Cabaret, brainchild of Philadelphia theatre artist David Sweeny, is an electrifying experience. An 8-piece absurdist soul outfit based in Philadelphia, it is an innovative, joyful tour-de-force that blissfully toes the line between performance art and a psychedelic soul revival. Carrying the torch of funk-rock pioneers like Funkadelic and Frank Zappa,  they have gained a massive following and propelled Johnny to something that of a funky Philly folk hero legend. www.johnnyshowcase.com

Birdie Busch - Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter Birdie Busch has one of those voices that draws you in on the first phrase and breathes you out at the end of the record. Busch and her slightly funky, sometimes quirky, and always-relaxed backing band blow through 11 slices of East Coast humor, pathos, and earnest observation that treat the word "pretense" as if it never existed.

Chris Kasper (solo acoustic) is an American songwriter with a style rooted in folk, rock and blues. His music has been compared to everything from Paul Simon to Beck, and draws on inspiration from musical greats such as Bill Withers and Levon Helm. With 25 years of playing under his belt, Chris's unique storytelling and lush arrangements, combined with his studio artistry, set him apart as a standout artist of this generation.
