Welcome to May! Here are some good local shows in the Philadelphia and NJ/Delaware/Philly suburbs area you should consider attending! Looks like a nice full day happening at the South Street Spring Fest as well as a lot of other solid Saturday night choices on May 5th!
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.
