Updated Philly Shows Through June

February 5, 2008

UPDATE:
The Breeders are coming in June, Feist was added to the Acadamy of Music on April 27. That’ll be a good show… And Devo will be playing together in June.

I really should just direct you to R5‘s site since their shows make up at least 80% of the list!
Shows of interest? Well of course, Public Enemy this Friday, Vampire Weekend but it’s sold out, Yeasayer & MGMT for which I have my tix, and Thao Nguyen & The Get Down Stay Down, who I’m digging right now (see track, below).
Surprises? Freezepop @ the North Star whom you should check out, and The Cribs who were on my best of 07 list.
The list also includes THREE bands I saw live back in the EIGHTIES. Can you guess which ones?
