For most commuters, the parking lot behind Ardmore station is nothing out of the ordinary but in a few weeks, the space will be transformed into a melange of music and good times for the second annual Live from the Lot music festival. Presented by Ardmore Music Hall, the event includes some of the nation’s top jazz, soul and funk talent as well as some local favorites. Beginning with the opening night party on May 20, Live from the Lot will be dishing out the funk through May 22. Here are 5 acts you can’t miss.
The members of this 8-piece brass funk band might still be in school at Drexel but they’re already making big waves in Philly music. Known for their lively shows and quirky compositions, Darla has already opened for George Clinton and will likely be a crowd favorite at Live from the Lot this year.
