burning up when it hits the atmosphere

Fruit Bats
- coming to Philly Saturday, September 12
@ Kung Fu Necktie, 7:30pm
$10, 21+

I'm back in Philly! This was my first weekend back, and as always I'm reminded of how much I love seeing my friends, being in the city, meeting new people and making new memories.

There was a little excitement in the streets when the sprinkler system in this church went off. People weren't sure if they church was on fire, and the wind was blowing the water like a rainstorm into the streets. The streets, which were already flooded with people attending First Friday, were then flooded with water pouring out of the church.

More about Fruit Bats:
Fruit Bats started in the 90s and has produced off and on. Their friendship with Modest Mouse, the Shins and Iron and Wine helped them get a record deal with Sub Pop records. They got back together in 2008, and have expanded to include members of the Shins. Now Philly is lucky enough to have them perform here.
