UPDATE: In The Pocket Concert Moved Indoors
The Philadelphia-based band will perform at People's Light and Theatre, a smaller venue with limited seating.
Update: Due to the possibility of severe weather, the concert has been moved to People's Light and Theatre Company. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
The concert is still free to the public, but the new, indoor venue has a seating capacity of a little over 300, according event organizer Jason Dempsey. Seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The second installment of the Friends of Summer Stage concert series comes this Wednesday, July 18, when In The Pocket takes the stage at Valley Creek Park in East Whiteland at 6:30 p.m.
What is In the Pocket? David Uosikkinen, drummer for local rock legends The Hooters, set out to record "the essential songs of Philadelphia"—songs written and recorded by Philadelphians—according to the band's website.
In pursuit of this goal, Uosikkinen enlisted the talents of "a rotating lineup of Phill's most celebrated musicians."
