Weekend Warrior, December 27 - 29

Weekend Warrior, December 27 - 29

So I’ve been really looking forward to attending this weekend’s Weekend Warrior pick. Not only is it a sweet, stacked, locals-only lineup this Saturday with Grandchildren, Night Panther and Purples (ex-Teeth), but it will also take place in my favorite sounding room in Philly, The Boot and Saddle. (Sorry folks, sounds like there might be a new sheriff in town so it might be time for other venues to step up their game.) You should already know how great Grandchildren and Night Panther are live on stage from our anniversary showcases. And older heads (in the know) might still remember how The Teeth helped Philly build its reputation as a “hot” music scene (well, according to Rolling Stone many moons ago) before the floodgates opened. Don’t sleep on this one! You don’t want to leave 2013 like that because I know you’re better than that. The Boot and Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Q.D. Tran
