Wedding Favor is the musical endeavor of Philadelphia-based artist Robert Perkins. Characterized bybasic free-formstructures, repetitive patterns, limited elements, and impish lyrics, Wedding Favor’s music simply aims to evoke any emotional response or connection. Hudson-based War Bonnet (nee Noah Reibel) will perform solo experimental guitar, and promises to keep his set “brief, and suited to the idiom.”
