Every year, Connor Barwin—indie rock’s favorite linebacker—and his Make the World Better Foundation throw a big old concert/fundraiser for Philadelphia’s parks and playgrounds. And if you were worried that would stop now that Barwin’s a Ram instead of an Eagle, worry not: This year’s show is bigger than ever. Your headliner: giant rock stars The War on Drugs, whose excellent new record A Deeper Understanding dropped August 25. Your venue: the underused and recently remodeled Dell Music Center. Your job: Show up and make the world better.
