The War On Drugs Performed Two Favorites For The ‘Love From Philly Live’ Charity Livestream

Musicians are unable to perform live and earn a living that way right now, so understandably, these are trying times for some in the music community. So, a group of Philadelphia musicians stepped up to help with Love From Philly Live, a charity livestream that took place over the weekend. The event benefited 30 Amp Circuit, a non-profit that was “created specifically to promote health and wellness for musicians and those that work for them.” One of the highlights was a quick set from The War On Drugs, who performed (remotely, of course) a pair of favorites from recent albums, “Pain” and “Under The Pressure.”

Ahead of the performance, the band wrote on Instagram, “We’re so psyched and honored to be featured on the @lovefromphillylive #lovefromphilly virtual fundraiser for the Philadelphia entertainment community. ALL proceeds will benefit @30ampcircuit . So many of our friends and neighbors from the Philly music community are gonna be there so make sure to grab yourself a Philly special and tune in. Plus you’ll get to catch a glimpse of our life at home these days. Did I wear the same clothes for three days just to get a halfway decent version of ‘under the pressure?’ If DI guitars sound this good then why do I have all these stupid amps? Or is Anthony in a ‘tchotchke-off’ with lee Sklar? Are midi cables the only thing buried in robbie’s basement? The answers to these questions and more…this SUNDAY NIGHT MAY 3.”
