Save the Thunderdome!

This show is supporting local Philadelphia artists and a place for local musicians to be heard. The Thunderdome. A venue completely contrived through the hospitality of the people that live there. They’re kind enough to open their home to traveling bands, friends, and fans of new or unrecognized music. These generous people had $250 stolen from their home so now a couple of local musicians are doing what they can to give back.

I know Cat Power is the same night at the Starlight Ballroom, but you have to weigh out the pro’s and con’s. Cat Power’s show is $22, supposedly her cheapest show while on this tour. The starlight ballroom has terrible sound quality, and the place is set up so you can only really enjoy the show up close with the pushy assholes or far back where you might as well be at home listening to the album. Otherwise, you find yourself looking at the back of someone’s head and maybe getting a glimpse of the band or maybe just a couple of faint glimmers of stage light.

Stop jumping on the band wagon and come support Philadelphia musicians and this local venue/house.

UPDATE: THE NEIGHBORHOOD CHOIR AND DJ JOHN PRISK WILL NO LONGER BE PLAYING THE SHOW!

THE NEIGHBORHOOD CHOIR IS PLAYING AT THE NORTH STAR BAR (27TH AND POPLAR) WITH THE MAJOR LEAGUES HEADLINING.
