If you’re an avid music lover and you find yourself in Philadelphia, then you need to check out concerts hosted by Radio 104.5. They are a unique radio station that plays only Alternative/ Indie music and they have free concerts for their listeners every year. They are my favorite Radio station in the Greater Philadelphia area. I’ve been going to their shows since high school and each year gets better and better.
This past Sunday, my friends and I attended their annual winter jam concert or as it was know this year Winter Jawn concert (It’s a Philly term). The concert itself is free and all you have to do is download tickets to get into the show. The show is held outside next to the Xfinity live sports center in South Philly. This years lineup consisted of Andorra, Judah and the Lion, Capital cities, Phantogram, and Group love as the main headliner. They also had a new discovery stage consisting of up and coming bands : Run River North, LP, and Civil Youth. I was over by the main stage and didn’t get the chance to check them out.
I’m not going to lie- I am one of those people who likes to takes a lot pictures and videos during the show. Down below I’ve shared my favorite photos from the show.
Favorite song: Take it all back. These guys had some sick dance moves. They also do a great cover of the Killers Mr.Brightside.
Capital cities was definitely my favorite performance. They really interact with the crowd. They’re know for their upbeat hit Safe and Sound.
What I like about this group that their music is chill but also has some pop/hip-hop influences in the beats. Favorite song: You don’t get me high anymore.
I’m a huge fan of Grouplove’s music. This was my second time seeing them and let me tell you their shows are insane (in a good way). People go crazy at their shows- They crowd surf, start mosh pits and jump around like maniacs. Favorite song: Ways to go.
Radio 104.5 concerts are always a good time. If you’re planning to be in Philly during January, make sure you download those tickets. The best thing about it, is that you get to see all of these AMAZING bands for free!! If you want to listen them but you’re not from the Philly area- don’t worry, you can listen to the station through IHeartRadio.com.
