Record excursion weekend in Philly

I will be posting another Boris the Sprinkler 7" later on today. But until then, here is some stuff I found in Philly this weekend.

First off I saw 2 of the best shows I've seen in some time. Saturday at the troc in Philly I saw None More Black, 7 Seconds and of course the Bouncing Souls. None more black was pretty good. Although I had higher expectations for them. 7 Seconds was amazing. I havent seen them and I've always been a huge fan. Still great to see Kevin Seconds tearing it up at his age. Of course the bouncing souls were amazing as always.

Sunday I saw Tim Barry, Lifetime and the Bouncing Souls. This was the first time I had heard Tim Barry. I thought he did a great set. I will be picking up his releases in the future for sure. Lifetime just blew me away. And they played Young, Loud and Scotty, and Northbound Breakdown so I'm a happy camper. The souls put on the best set I have ever seen. TONS of energy and they played all my favorites. My god what a great weekend.
