Hurrah is a monthly event filled with awesomeness and with Plastic Little it’s going to be INSANE! Luckily they did not go with “Gathering/Flash Mob” as their event type. We don’t want no baton wielding teens and/or misinformed po-po trying to stop this!

For all of you who do not know me personally, I love zombies. For many years I’ve been obsessed (and I would like to think it was before zombies made their way up the “favorite monster” ladder). I have such a strong zombie infatuation that I will dress up like a zombie for as many events in Philly as possible. That being said, here is a trailer for A.D.
This is fucking fantastic. Seriously. I’ve watched this trailer multiple times and it’s just perfect. Animated zombies is something that isn’t big in the entertainment industry and, when it is, it’s usually goofy and not scary at all (i.e. Scooby Doo, Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, etc.)
But this is different. I’m actually quite scared of the zombie in the trailer. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that he’s missing a jaw or dragging a corpse but, either way, he’s terrifying!
A.D. is written by Haylar Garcia and the trailer was directed by Ben Hibbon (CodeHunters) and produced by Bernie Goldmann (300). More information about the movie and an interview with it’s creators can be found here!
Both bands are folk/bluegrass rock and put on a great live show. Show starts at 8PM and tickets are $15.
On another note: how awesome is that poster?! It was created by Snakes Will Eat You. If you’re around Philly you’ve probably seen some of their stuff before; they’ve done artwork for Ben Arnold, Hezekiah Jones, Sisters 3, and TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb as well.
If you know me you know I collect Philly band posters. If I really like a poster I take it once the show date passes. If I saw this one hanging I’d take it in a heartbeat.
As most of you Philadelphia beer snobs know, Philly Craft Beer Festival is this weekend at The Naval Yard. This event has been sold out for weeks but, thanks to my very generous co-worker, I will be attending the afternoon session with Diana over at Philly Lush. So if you’re there please stop and say HAI!
In the meantime take a gander at the pictures Erica and I grabbed at last year’s PCBF for the ExBEERiment blog:
This year I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces from my local favorites Lancaster Brewing Co. and Yards Brewing Co. and I’m definitely asking Brew Dog questions about their 41% “Sink The Bismarck” beer. Huh? Say what? You didn’t hear about the strongest beer in the world?
If you want more information about the Philly Craft Beer Festival check out their official website here. They provide a list of participating breweries so, if you’re like me, you’ll know what to hit up and what to skip past.
See you all Saturday AND DON’T FORGET YOUR PRETZEL NECKLACES!
I’m hock up to my eyeballs in work today so I only have time for a quick thought:
I was completely infatuated with The Teeth. Listening to them on my fellow employee’s ITunes is the only way I’ll be able to hear them now. RIP The Teeth!
Now say hello to Purples.
I hope you live up to my expectations. Said expectations tend to be ridiculously high.
I’m sure you’ll be able to appease me though. So far so good.
Two things I love about Philadelphia are the local artists and posters. To combine them is just magical for me.
That is why I love the Nite Lights.
The Nite Lights are an eccentric rock band from Philadelphia. I came to know them not from their music but from frontman Joe B.’s posters that are scattered around the city: in the girl’s bathroom at Lucky 13 Pub, going down the steps at Tattooed Moms, above the bar at Bishop’s Collar, and so on (oh no…I only mentioned bars. I really am an alcoholic!).
I became infatuated with these dark posters; usually featuring some sort of ironically twisted scene and/or political theme. But what interests me the most is all the posters are done in black and white. They are completely absorbing; forcing you to stare long enough to recognize it the next time you see a similar design.
There’s power in color simplicity that lets these posters jump out from a wall of other posters with bands missing vowels in their name and feature neon exclamation points with flying tigers on top of a shocking pink background…eek!
Check out The Nite Lights posters and music at their Myspace
Or go to one of their upcoming shows!
