D.R.I, Ghoul, Phobia Live In Philadelphia (5/21/15)

This past Thursday I headed to Philly’s intimate Voltage Lounge to catch a stacked lineup with Phobia, Ghoul, and DRI all playing, who were on their way to Maryland Death Fest.  Due to traffic I got to the venue a bit late and missed the two openers, but got there right as Phobia was playing their opening chords.  I battled through the sea of denim vests and long hair to the front for Phobia.

Jeff Rosenstock, Chumped Live In Asbury Park (4/26/15)

After hanging out at a Phillies game all day (just like a good Yankees fan…), my girlfriend and I headed to Asbury Lanes to catch Jeff Rosenstock play his last show of his current tour.  I caught him here in Philadelphia last month when he played with Andrew Jackson Jihad.  The place was decently packed for an 18+ show on a Sunday night, and I was impressed by how many younger fans were there (as proven by the lack of people singing along to bands […]
