Dec. 16, 2008 – Matt Duke – Burlap and Bean – Newtown Square, PA
Jan 16, 2009 – Frightened Rabbit, Arc in Round, Right on Dynamite – Johnny Brenda’s, Philadelphia, PA
Frightened Rabbit put on a good show for Philly. This was their opening show for their current US tour. They performed well in this small venue, had a lot of fun and rocked out. I had never been to Johnny Brenda's. I have to admit, I liked it a lot to show a smaller show. I liked being up top on the balcony and viewing the band from up above. Right on Dynamite from Brooklyn put on a great show as well. I don't think FR could have found a better opening band. Look for them in the near future to start making headlines in the indie music world.
Some other great shows coming up in the Philly area...March 1 - Blitzen Trapper and March 13 - old school vegan punks, Propagandhi. Keep your ears posted and check out some new music! Cheers!
