Tonight downtown, Arnold's host a free show by Hope For Agoldensummer at 7 p.m. The Athens, Ga., ensemble has been making beautiful Indie Folk music for nearly a decade, winning numerous awards from their hometown scene's Flagpole and Creative Loafing papers — they've scored five Best Folk/Americana awards in just the past seven years. The band has also received glowing press from non-Athenian sources, including the Washington Post, The New Yorker and NPR's All Songs Considered, which said HFA "has a knock for crafting gorgeous and often complex refrains, supported by utterly captivating arrangements.

The group — a sister act fronted by Claire & Page Campbell — has a new album, Life Inside the Body, due May 1. Check out Hope For Agoldensummer's video for the tune "4th Night," which won the group another local music award — for Best Music Video. And check out the groovy new tune, "Daniel Bloom," here via Philly radio outlet WXPN.
