Chris Harford's music has been described as "beautiful, heart-wrenching and soulful," as well as "dark, rocking and dangerous." Regardless of the moods Harford's music evokes, his songs have a way of getting under the skin. Chris Harford & The Band of Changes — backed by members of Ween, Particle and the Adrian Belew Band — performed a concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Dec. 8.

Harford's newest CD, Looking Out for Number 6, was produced by Ween's Dean Ween and released in October. As for Ween, which is currently touring with Harford (and backing him during this performance), the group has spent the last 20-plus years cultivating a large and loyal underground fan base. Ween's countless recordings have run the gamut from primitive home-taping experiments to big-budget major-label hits; its latest release is a collection of outtakes and oddities titled Shinola, Volume 1.
