Hop Along, 'Waitress' (Live) Frances Quinlan is an unorthodox and exciting performer. Watch her band perform "Waitress" for WXPN.

World Cafe Presents: Hop Along


Hop Along has more friends in the Philadelphia music scene than just about anybody; Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield even has a tattoo of the band's first album cover. Singer Frances Quinlan is an exciting, unorthodox performer whose phrasing in "Waitress," from Painted Shut, isn't intuitive. But that makes it all the more powerful.

All next week, as part of World Cafe's Sense Of Place series, we'll look at the Philadelphia music scene, with Hop Along, Waxahatchee, The Districts, The War On Drugs and others.
