Red 40, aka your toxic ex-boyfriend's worst nightmare, is returning to her home stage of FringeArts where she led the house band for two years. Named a "local legend" by Philadelphia Magazine, her feminist agenda and powerhouse pipes have been featured on NPR's Sound Opinions, at Ars Nova's ANT Fest, and on many a sold-out stage. Billy Penn named her a young creator of the "new Philadelphia sound."
Johnny Showcase is a sweaty, charismatic showman from Rhode Island who is equal parts Andy Kaufman and Prince. Carrying the torch of funk-rock pioneers like Funkadelic and Frank Zappa, he and his band the Mystic Ticket have gained a massive following and propelled Johnny to something of a funky Philly folk hero legend. He is more famous in the 4-9 year old market as his kid-centric act, Johnny Shortcake, and to the rest of the world from his confounding stint on America's Got Talent in 2021.
