[FOLK ROCK] + MON., JULY 24
Philadelphia-bred Mt. Joy are in some ways a typical indie folk-rock band with a laid-back and easy sound. But if you listen close to songs like “Sheep” — about the anger and disappointment following the 2015 death of Baltimore’s Freddie Gray while in police custody — you’ll recognize that there’s a lot more going on. The song is a call for musicians with a platform to address important issues, even ones that don’t affect them specifically. Joining Mt. Joy at Club Café tonight is Trevor Sensor, with his gravelly voice and working-class songs reminiscent of ’80s rock classics. Rounding out the evening is the earnest folk-rock sound of local one-man-band Zoob.
