Dangers, Graf Orlock, Holy, Kids Live In Philadelphia (8/23/14)

This past Saturday night I headed to West Philly’s Golden Tea House to catch an incredibly stacked lineup in one of my favorite houses around.  The show is played in essentially the kitchen, and things got fucking insane with this lineup.  When I first saw that DANGERS was playing in Philly again, I made sure I was going to be there since they put on the best show I’ve seen all year earlier in January, but with Graf Orlock also on the bill?  Holy shit.

I bought […]
