Good Old War is an indie-folk trio consisting of three Philly natives—Keith Goodwin (vocals, guitar, keys), Tim Arnold (drums, keys, accordion, vocals), and Daniel Schwartz (guitar, vocals). Pulling from each of their surnames to create the band's moniker, these three friends and collaborators have created a great chemistry on stage and a knack for mesmerizing three-part harmonies. Playing at festivals such as SXSW and the XPoNential, collaborating with Anthony Green, and cultivating a reputation that's reached beyond the Philly music scene to the rest of the nation, Good Old War have started out their first few years in a successful fashion. Known for their lively and inspiring on-stage performances, Good Old War will be at the World Cafe for this week's Free at Noon. Come here from their latest, Come Back As Rain, and start the weekend with some great live music.
