When it comes to music, Connor Darwin knows his stuff. For one thing, spotting the Eagles' defensive end/linebacker at a rock show has become something of a rite of passage in Philadelphia. For another, his annual Make the World Better concerts (raising money for Philly parks) are known for their killer line-ups: Kurt Vile and The Districts in 2014, Mac DeMarco, Marian Hill and the Suffers in 2015. This year’s concert — headlined by outstanding Philly bands Hop Along and Waxahatchee — is another winner. And that’s with the “special guest” still TBA. In case you don't know who those bands are, here's a primer:
