Direct Hit! Priceduifkes Live In Philadelphia (6/21/14)

This has been the week of goddamn shows (FUCK YOU, GET PUMPED) and I’m falling a bit behind in posts due to all of my running around (add trying to find a new apartment to the list and yeah…) Anyways, last Saturday I headed to Philly’s bar and venue The Fire to catch one of my favorite pop-punk bands around these days Direct Hit.  I missed a few of the openers due to being out watching the US vs Portugal depressing draw (which, by the […]

Cro-Mags, Anti-Nowhere League, Hub City Stompers Live In Philly (5/31/14)

This past Saturday, I headed to Philly’s First Unitarian Church’s sweltering basement to catch a pretty diverse and stacked lineup consisting of Heavy Chains, Hub City Stompers, Rude Awakening, Anti-Nowhere League, and the motherfucking Cro-Mags.  The place while packed, wasn’t sold out (how it didn’t sell out is beyond me) and I got there in time to catch NJ’s Hub City Stompers. Hub City Stompers: I’ve loved Hub City Stompers ever since I saw them back in 2003 at some random NJ ska show, and […]
