Sounds of Summer

Summer is a time for sun and surf—and plenty of song. Get your fill of the latter at the annual WXPN All About the Music Festival, held at Wiggins Park in Camden, N.J., July 21 through 23. The eclectic lineup for the three-day festival includes seminal 1970s punk-glam rock stars the New York Dolls on July 21 and folk-blues-rock musician Citizen Cope (pictured at left) on July 22. Folk troubadour Josh Ritter also performs on the 22nd, and Philly-based BC Camplight takes the stage on July 23. Saturday and Sunday feature a Kids Corner stage, with performances by The Cats Pajamas and Yosi & The Superdads, among others. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids on Friday; $13 for adults and $5 for kids in advance on the weekend. For a full lineup and detailed ticket information, go to: www.xpn.org.
