Philadelphia Weekly has been sponsoring some of the best free shows in Philly every August for at least four years now. It’s always a great lineup hasn’t disappointed.
I regrettably missed the first show with Burndown Allstars, a local act I’ve been wanting catch for a while. Friends in attendance said they were great- some even bought their CDs.

The weather for last Week’s Man Man show was a little damp, but the (young) Man Man fans still showed up in force. It was the biggest crowd I’ve witnessed yet. There was even body surfing!

Last night’s Los Straightjackets/Big Sandy show was a bit of a clunker, but the older folks enjoyed it and there was a large crowd.

If you haven’t been yet, get your ass over to Rittenhouse Square next Wednesday, September 5 at 7 PM sharp for The Cobbs and Asteroid #4– the last show of the season. Bring a blanket and a cooler full of beer. Drinking isn’t allowed, but c’mon; this is Philly. Public drinking laws aren’t enforced… except on South Street.

BTW: Our concert listings for Philly is updated daily. Just added: Van Halen. WOO HOO!
