Tweeter and Me

Summer concert season has come and gone, and for the first time since I have lived in Philadelphia I saw nary a show at the Tweeter Center. I’ve seen many great shows and festivals there on hot summer days, but sometime last year I decided I was too old for it. Or too impatient for it. Or both. I still love my live music, but I can’t take the ungodly heat, the confiscation of my blanket for random reasons, the 12 year-olds asking me to buy them a beer. Enough! But, once the Tweeter turns into a closed-wall venue, as long as you don’t drive and try to get out of those terrible parking lots, it’s not so bad. Very curious how this space has such a dual-personality–hot summer madness, or chill winter entertainment.

    Jay V and I went to Counting Crows at the Tweeter this summer. It was great. We brought tri-fold beach chairs and our blanket, and no one gave us any porblems. We layed out and enjoyed the show, and it was a less than usually annoying crowd. I was pleased. Except for the drug usage everywhere. It was a different expeirce than when I saw Fall Out boy or My Chemical romance. Those shows’ crowds were the worst.
