8pm Doors/DJ | 9pm Live Music
It's a jam session, it's a dance party, it's a live show — and it always features the hottest talent on the scene!! Sittin' In is the free, monthly jam session at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Blending edgy horns, choice vinyl, cutting edge MC's and soaring vocalists, each session is unique, led by a stellar lineup of guest hosts and their band of choice.
This month, Philadelphia’s Johnny Popcorn returns with their new full-length record, Totem Pole, released on September 30th via MAD Dragon Records! Featuring vocalists Hezekiah and Jani Coral, guitarist/producer Lloyd Alexander, bassist Freshie and drummer Clayton Crothers, Johnny Popcorn delivers their second LP that blends soul, rock, and hip-hop into a sound that has made Johnny Popcorn an unpredictable thrill ride. On Totem Pole, Johnny Popcorn seeks to call its fans into action against the ordinary. Songs like lead single, “GO GO GO!”, Emancipation” and “Put The Computer to Sleep” attempt to inspire the listener to get up off the couch to find meaning and inspiration in the world around them through their characteristic upbeat instrumentals and catchy melodies. “Dare to dream and don’t ask why!” With an innovated sound and direction, Johnny Popcorn continues to ignite live shows and record emotionally driven songs. Johnny Popcorn has opened for Bilal, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, RJD2, Ladi6, and Kindred & the Family Soul.
