The Twilight Music Festival is a summer long music series hosted by Parks on Tap Jr. Every Sunday from July 9th – August 27th, the mini beer garden will be set up from 4-9PM, at MLK Jr. Drive near the Dragon Boat Dock. Guests can sit back with a beer in hand to enjoy music from local artists along the scenic Schuylkill River. The festival is a fun way for Philadelphians to support the local music scene and our City’s green spaces. A portion of all proceeds benefits Philly’s parks!

ABOUT BARDO POND
Bardo Pond was the flagship band of Philly’s “Psychedelphia” space rock movement, which also included the likes of Aspera, Asteroid No. 4, the Azusa Plane, and tangentially the Lilys. Hints of blues structure often cropped up, but Bardo Pond’s earliest roots lay with avant-garde noisemakers from the realm of free jazz and from New York’s no wave movement and downtown Knitting Factory scene. As their musicianship improved, the band gradually incorporated more traditional influences, but maintained their affinity for the outer fringes of music. Thus, their brand of space rock echoed not just genre staples like Hawkwind and Pink Floyd, but jam-happy Krautrockers (Amon Düül, Popol Vuh, Ash Ra Tempel, Guru Guru) and experimental indie heroes (Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and especiallySpacemen 3). With a steady stream of releases on Matador, the band stuck around long enough to draw comparisons to the spacier, noisier contingent of post-rockers, like Mogwai and Flying Saucer Attack. Underground psychedelic superstars for almost the last 20 years, Bardo Pond is Philly’s hometown epic psych band.
