Upcoming Philly shows

February 9, 2007

We cheapos are in for a treat this weekend. Philly’s got TWO FREE shows, friday AND saturday. West Philly’s Bear is Driving are headlining at the Millcreek Tavern on Friday 2/9 and Johnny Cash cover band Man in Black are doing Fergies Saturday 2/10.

Lily Allen THIS MONDAY, 2/12 @ the TLA. I gots my tickets to this now sold out show and will post photos next week. In the meantime, check out a mashup of Lily with James & Bobby Purify’s classic I’m Your Puppet. mp3 here.

The founding fathers of Jamaican music/ska/reggae, The Skatalites, are FINALLY returning to Philly after like 8 years! They’ll be playing at the Troc Thurs, Feb 22nd.
The last time they graced our fair city was outside at the Manyunk Brewery (before it was even the brewery) opening for another great and oft. overlooked Jamaican artist, Ken Boothe. The Skatalites have been touring the world (with the great Doreen Schaffer on vocals) nonstop for years but I almost gave up hope that they’d visit again. Bout time guys.

Looks like LCD Soundsystem are skipping Philly this time round. Gonna pass right by us when they drive up I95 from DC to NYC.

Check back later for new philly listings.
