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.
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.
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….

Back in December 2010 I put up a post on FOXY SHAZAM performing in San Diego, CA
…well I was finally able to reconnect with them on the opposite coast. I recently saw them perform at the North Star Bar in Philadelphia, PA. The place was no larger then a decent sized studio apartment and I had to dodge heads, hands and people dancing to grab a few photos (while still remembering to dance a lil myself.
After the show I was able to have a brief conversation with the lead singer, Eric Sean Nally. I was able to pass along my business card which features a picture of Foxy Shazam from their show in San Diego, CA. I hope it brings me more work, but I did it more a sign of admiration of their music. I hope they found it a compliment that I would feature them on an object that I would hand to the world.
Check out the link below to see their latest video for “I Like It”.

…I ran into Pineapple’s Dining Room. I have no background info and was unable to get inside. I do feel as if it was once a spot for soul food and warmth when it was open…most likely a small family run business. Its a shame that a spot like this can’t survive.

Here’s a short preview of a building I explored earlier today. I only got an hour before the sunset. So I will be going back and shooting more, and a full post will be up soon. Future shoots are in the works as well.
Thanks you to everyone who is still following Urban Setting…even though I’ve been way to quiet.
