As part of American Songwriter’s “Discover” concert series, in partnership with ReverbNation CONNECT,  Philadelphia native Ron Gallo performed at the Family Wash on May 2, sharing the bill with singer-songwriter Lilly Hiatt and blues punk band Thelma and the Sleaze.

With punk-rock influences and a highly confrontational performance style, Gallo’s performance stayed true to the aggressive yet lively tone of his mission statement: “Rock and roll isn’t dead. You are.” The garage rocker’s performance was the third in the “Discover Series,” which aims to showcase emerging new artists in the area.
