Dispatch formed in 1994, and quickly became a staple of college campuses and summer music festivals across the country. When members Chad Urmston, Brad Corrigan and Pete Heimbold decided to call it quits in 2002, fans knew the band would be missed.

After nearly 10 years, Dispatch reunited in 2011 for a national tour and put out its first release in 11 years. While gearing up for the release of Circles Around the Sun, Dispatch stopped by Philadelphia's World Cafe Live on Friday to satisfy a hungry crowd with old favorites and a few new songs. As expected, sing-alongs ensued.

Set List:
  • "Bang Bang"
  • "Open Up"
  • "Circles Around The Sun"
  • "The General"
  • "Not Messin'"
  • "Two Coins"
  • "Get Ready Boy"
  • "Elias"
