Tonight at Grape Street Philadelphia
One of my favorite places to frequent for local music, being a suburban dude, is the Grape Street. Sure, it’s way out west in Manayunk, but it’s always a good time when I swing by. On weeknights they have small, acoustic acts in the Grape Room, and the Main Stage always rocks harder than an avalanche of snow! And, of course, the dance floors, which you’ll never, ever catch me on.
Like tonight, chillin’ up in the DJ Room’s Friday Night Dance Party are DJ Sat One and White Mike. They do their thing however they want but then you’d find me headbangin’ to (and you’re gonna think I’m crazy or just plain weird for this lineup:) Shane Hines, Chili Stu, Fooling April, and Whiskey Train.
I only really have heard Fooling April. They’re that poppy piano rock that reminds you of the Beatles if they were around today. Billy Joel had that thing going in the 80’s, and now it’s Fooling April, up and coming straight out of our little city. My buddies are going to see Shane Hines and Whiskey Train, too, and my buddies have good taste in music. We’ll see how everything turns out. It’ll be awesome and cool and if you got some free time and a few minutes to kill on I-76 (unless you know a better way, in which case TELL ME!) swing by for a musically moving good time!
