    I'm from NY but coming to philly this weekend. :)

    Saturday, August 20th
    Abilene
    429 South St
    Philadelphia, PA
    9pm

    we had a last minute cancellation in a tour we're doing, and were given an opening spot at this club. if you like the kind of music we do (cross btwn green day, STP, chili peps, and weezer) then we'd love to have some support. opening spots can be rough.
     


  8. Hey Joe, is it all ages? If so I'm gonna be in town until Sunday. I'd love to stop by.

    Sorry i missed this for so long. I'm from philly too. I'll try to make that gig if i have the cash to get down there. I'm over 21 so hopefully the cut off isn't any higher than that if there is one haha.

    i grew up in philly, but eversince college, live in NYC.

    i go down pretty often, cause i'm tired of ordering "subs" and "heroes", when what i really want is a "hoagie" and a "cheesesteak". ;) :D

    I spent a couple of days in Phily about 10 yrs. ago and had horrible experiences with just about everyone I met. Everyone seemed incredibly rude, angry, and as if all they wanted to do was go home and not be bothered with the world or anything in it.

    Played there about a month ago and had the exact opposite experience. Met the friendliest people, everybody seemed happy, helpful, bright and cheery.

    It was the same area too.

    Did all the people that once lived there move out, and they let all the happy people in? Or did I just have a strange few days on my first visit?
