That's me walking the tracks on the 'west shore' of the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, PA last Saturday evening. I had plans to venture to New York City for the weekend to participate in the Coney Island Mermaid Parade
, but plans changed a few days before departure. Kid PA
, a band made of some of my charming male friends, was asked to play a show with the legendary, politically inspired, punk rock band known as Anti-Flag
. I couldn't say no. I needed to support these band boys that I adore so much.
Before the guys went into the Championship
to set up, we took a stroll along the railroad tracks that run beside the river. So pretty.
Really, I just wanted to show off this nice, new thrift store score. That skirt was plucked from a rack in one of the Lancaster Goodwill stores. I liked the style, color, price (only $4.50!) and print but had to take it in about 3" to make it fit me. I'm pretty sure I was the only girl at the punk show wearing a skirt, but whatever, it's my style. I paired it with a simple grey tank, a vintage brown leather belt, and flats (I didn't want my toes getting squashed while standing in the crowd).
After adventuring for a few minutes, I headed inside to watch Kid PA perform. These boys are way cooler than they actually know. I love watching them play on stage. It gives me goosebumps (& they're way good looking, so that helps, too).
If you haven't noticed it yet, check out the new Kid PA ad on the right side of this blog page. It takes you directly to their website where you can listen to their music, watch silly videos, and read a little biography. At the Anti-Flag show, I handed out 50 copies of Kid PA's new EP. It features 5 songs. The kids at the show were stoked to have new music in their hands.
Sounds like a pretty rad show... and it was. It's really amazing to think that there is a venue like the Championship in the little town of Lemoyne, PA for punk rockers of all ages to enjoy great bands in a great atmosphere.
