Celebrating Father's Day the only way we know how!

On Sunday, June 19th, I drug my over-tired butt out to The Foundry in Philadelphia to catch a show. It was Father’s Day, so the crowd wasn’t as large as I was expecting seeing as how it was a Street Dogs show, but hey! That just meant less of a line for the bar and bathroom.

Opening up the night was local band, The Bad Ups, who were fast, bouncy, and had just a dash of ska flavouring. Following them were the UK’s own The Bar Stool Preachers, who were just a goddamned treat. How can you not enjoy a set where the band convinced everyone in the venue to squat on the floor and then jump up “to party”?

A re-tooled lineup of Darkbuster, The New Darkbuster, was the third band of the evening and continued to get the crowd riled up. Street Dogs finished out the evening, playing a mix of both new and old. McColgan and crew, as always, played a great show.

Check out the gallery below for shots of the entire evening:

    Charger is the soundtrack to circle pits and bar fights, to long nights and even longer mornings, to unexplained bruises and epic hangovers (and headbangovers).

    The old saying of Oi! music is still true, and should be adhered to..."having a laugh and having a say".
