The 2017 NON-COMMvention grows with the addition of Shaffer’s Band, Tommy Stinson’s re-formed Bash & Pop, Real Estate, and more…
WXPN’s Dan Reed always has a surprise or two up his sleeve with regard to NON-COMMvention showcase artists.
One of this year’s curveballs is bound to be a crowd-pleaser – Paul Shaffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band. The ensemble will release an album in March on Rhino Records, featuring guest shots from Dion, Bill Murray, Darius Rucker, and Jenny Lewis.
Also just-announced are Bash & Pop – the side project of The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, Real Estate, and newcomers ALA.NI, and Holly Macve.
The five join the previously announced Pixies, Mondo Cozmo, The Mavericks, Ani DiFranco, and Chicano Batman.
The NON-COMMvention takes place May 17-19 in Philadephia. Registration and Hotel details can be found by navigating from the menu at the top of the page.
