Cardinal Harbor set to play Café 210 August 8th!

Cardinal Harbor, a six-piece band from Chicago, IL is set to perform at Café 210 on August 8th at 10:30 PM. They begin their tour throughout Pennsylvania beginning in August, with opener Anna Pearl Belinda. Based on their website, “Cardinal Harbor has been classified as a unique blend of deep rooted rock and alternative indie music”. They also state that they range from being,  “in-your-face “rock as food sound”, and yet somehow being able to find peacefully contemplative moments throughout.”

There music can be found on iTunes HERE.

In addition, if you are in town this Saturday, July 27th, stop at Otto’s to see Cardinal Harbor’s vocalist Spencer McCreary play a solo show at 9 PM.
