Kevin Bacon fondly remembers music being a central part of his upbringing in Philadelphia. He and his brother, Michael, spent time playing music with friends, and grew up among the sounds of folk, soul and rock music in the city.

“People have often asked us, ‘What was it like to grow up in a music town?’” Bacon said. “We never had anything to compare it to. It’s not really until you leave that you realize that it has this great history.”

Now, Kevin and Michael are returning to their hometown to play a show at Union Transfer this Thursday to benefit the construction of the Reading Viaduct Project—the planned green space and elevated park using the abandoned railway line in the Callowhill Neighborhood—with theFriends of the Railpark organization. Joining them will be Rob Grote of The Districts.
