Many music lovers have shown up to see a band play, only to find themselves standing confused outside the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia. However, they soon find that the primarily indie and punk shows scheduled in the church's basement, sanctuary, and chapel have become some of the most popular in the city. While the facilities are large enough to accommodate pretty large crowds, the space provides some intimacy and a sense of taboo that audiences can't get enough of.
Even before it started featuring concerts, the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia had a history of groundbreaking accomplishments. The congregation was established in 1796 and the first in the country to label itself "Unitarian." That means that it's not only the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, but the first in all of the United States. The church was known for its abolitionist stance before the Civil War, and began welcoming the LGBT community in 2006. Around that same time, the First Unitarian Church began renting out parts of the church to schedule bands, which mostly consist of punk, indie, and alternative acts. The church supports the shows because of their straight edge, no alcohol / no drugs policy that provides an excellent venue for people of all ages.
Shows at the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia have become a popular phenomenon known around the country. Check the schedule above to see the kind of performances you'll find at this unique music venue.
