Drexel's chapter of Habitat for Humanity is teaming up with Drexel's radio station, WKDU 91.7 FM, Late Night Series Philly, and MadKo Concerts to raise money and create awareness for Habitat for Humanity's mission of building "simple, decent, and affordable' housing for the less fortunate. The show starts at 6:30 PM with a $5 donation at the door. If you can't be there, tune into WKDU 91.7 FM for the live simulcast.

Agent Moosehead is a local fusion group that performs a hybrid style featuring jazz and progressive rock elements. Aside from the band's full inventory of original, mostly instrumental songs, they are also widely known for their live renditions of Nintendo music, TV themes and Frank Zappa covers. The West Philadelphia Orchestra describes themselves as a "community" of musicians. With over twenty collective members, the band integrates different backgrounds, influences and instrumentations mainly from Eastern European folk tradition. The Last Emperor, one of Philadelphia's most renowned emcees, will bring his distinctive brand of hip hop to the stage. The Color Karma and Tha Itis will also bring their unique brand of experimental and progressive rock to the bill.
