Mt. Joy, which got its start playing locations like Gryphon Cafe in Wayne, is returning to the Philadelphia area on Sept. 10 to headline a show at Skyline Stage in Mann Music Center, writes Nick McIlwain for 93.3 WMMR

The popular indie rock band’s lead vocalist Matt Quinn and lead guitarist Sam Cooper met while both were at Conestoga High School in Berwyn.

The band recently released their third album, Orange Blood
