Two DJ’s, Milkman and XXXChange, recently stopped by Union Transfer and completely lit the place up (literally). Both Milkman and XXXChange were talented artists, it was their visuals that stolel the show.

XXXChange threw a fast tempo’d collage of sorts across the entire stage. There were no spot lights or disco balls, just a constant projection of graphics.

Milkman went a different route and decided to silhouette himself behind two intense lasers throwing off every color imaginable.

Incredible performance by both artists, and two that I will be following more closely in the future. Follow the link below to listen to two of Milkman’s singles. Til next time.

MICHAEL JACKSON – THRILLER

Easter sunday was full of bodies that resurrected from the dead and took to South st to get drunk. Hundreds of zombies roamed the streets and made the families enjoying a nice easter dinner confused, worried and mortified. There were everything from zombies enjoying a nice dinner to zombies posted at the bar to zombies dancing the night away. I took part in all three.

This was probably not for the religious at heart. I am not religious and still felt slightly guilty.

Image

Plenty of blood , brains and chaos for one of my more weird easter sundays.

On Worldwide Pillow Fight Day 2012…Philadelphia hosted their own 4th Annual Pillow Fight at Washington Sq Park. Several hundreds people of all ages showed up to engage in some non violent solo and team oriented pillow fighting/games. There were costumes, capture the flag (pillow fighting edition), naps and plenty of classic hits to the back of the heads with big soft pillows. 

ImageImageImageImage

The event was put together by URBAN PLAYGROUND of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia was not the only city partaking in a massive pillow fight. Other fights were scheduled all around the world on the same day or close to the same day. You can see the entire list of locations at the link below.

Gabe Saporta & DJ Jeffrey Tonneson rocked the first City Six Thursdays at Xfinity Life last thursday. That night made me fall in love with that place. I went through every club atmosphere from beer hall to country music bar to electronic dance hall to your wildes imagination, and it was all in the same building. The place was packed with thousands of attractive men and women all just looking for a good time.

Xfinity Live is perfect for a night out and for a place to watch your philly sports team if you dont have tickets. I will be at Xfinity Live for all the flyers playoffs games. I fell in love with that place and if your from philly I suggest you check it out. My favorite bar in Xfinity Live is PBR Bar and Grill. Its a straight drinking country bar with a mechanical bull in the middle. I’m not a fan of country music, but I love country bars. Something about them are always wild and everything about drinking and being at worst/best.

Please…if your in philly…Check out Xfinity Live.

A SILENT FILM @ UNION TRANSFER

Englands own A Silent Film just made their return to Philadelphia, PA to perform at Union Transfer. This was the first time I saw them since the Radio 104.5 Summer Concert at The Piazza. This show was a lot more intimate and personable. The band was incredibly grateful and expressed their love for Philadelphia, and that we brought them their biggest club show on their US tour.

Image

A Silent Film’s sound is addicting. The singers voice is perfect and when accompanied by the rest of the band creates a unique and intriguing sound. No instrument over powers any of the others, and they all seem to always play with each other. This is band isn’t nearly as big as they should be.

If you have any interest in Coldplay, Keane, Arcade Fire, Of Monsters and Men….indie rock in general…then please check out A Silent Film.

Take a second and check out their single at the link below…

A SILENT FILM – YOU WILL LEAVE A MARK

OF MONSTERS AND MEN @ THE TLA

Of Monsters and Men came through Philadelphia yesterday for two days to play at The TLA. To be honest, their song Little Talks began to really annoy me after hearing it several hundred times on the radio. With that said I still decided to listen to the rest of the work, which wasn’t much until their first CD was released two days ago. I quickly forgot about Little Talks and was hooked, listening to their songs on repeat for days.

I prefer their song Six Weeks.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

This band has an amazing talent. Their sound is incredibly addictive. Their stage presence is very welcoming and you feel as if your at the venue to enjoy each other. Its been a long time since I’ve lost my self at a concert, I walked away from this show feeling refreshed.

Check out their video for Little Talks…even though I prefer some other songs…the visuals in the video are pretty interesting.

OMAM – Little Talks

Here is a live video of Six Weeks…just as good live as they are recorded

THIRD EYE BLIND ROCKS XFINITY LIVE

Philadelphia is the best sports city hands down! Too have every stadium in walking distance from each other…and only a 15 minute subway ride from the city incredible. Now Philadelphia has added Xfinity Live directly in the middle of the stadiums. A hand full of crazy bars, gigantic screens and more than enough food makes going to the game worth it even if you don’t have a ticket. Check out the details at the link below…its impressive, loud and chaotic….all qualities I love.

http://www.xfinitylive.com/

The grand opening was set off by a free concert by Third Eye Blind. I didn’t know about this show til a few hours before it started. I phoned a few friends and found some willing to head down…it was worth it. I danced to some classics and was able to see one of my favorite bands. How can you not like Third Eye Blind.

I was also able to snap a few photos.Image

After the show I was decently drunk and headed to Chickies and Petes and stuffed my face with mussels, crab legs, wings cheese fries and few more beers. That was my idea of heaven.

Til next time….
