The Feelies, Jonathan Demme's Favorite Band

  • World Cafe Live 3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States

Even if not for the passing of the great Jonathan Demme, whose Something Wild they appeared in and together wound up defining an entire beautiful weird American moment, we would have told you to show up for The Feelies. Unlike so many of their Amerindie 1.0 contemporaries, The Feelies rebirth of late has been more than legitimate — in fact, it’s dropped them down in the exact sublime place they were when they left off in the 1990s. Their latest, In Between, features that signature sound: big, ringing acoustic guitars, woodblocks and tambourines out the wazoo, and intimate, laconic speak-singing narration. Live, they deliver this, plus a lot more, too.
