I know there's a big football game happening Sunday night, but what else is happening this weekend and early next week in Philly and the surrounding areas? Lots of great concerts to check out starting tonight!
As always, I only link the Philly area artists (city, suburbs, Jersey, Delaware, with moderate liberties). No offense to the other folks on these shows from other towns... Also I probably won't include Sold-Out shows, since you can't go if you don't already have your tix.
As always, msg me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @PhillyMusicPod to let me know about upcoming shows that I should include, new songs to listen to, etc.
