This past Saturday, I almost completely forgot about a free show happening in a park to raise money and attention for Rock To The Future, a Philadelphia based nonprofit dedicated to helping keep music part of school curriculum by donating instruments, etc. Luckily, a helpful reminder text from my girlfriend had me down at Liberty Lands Park in Philly just in time to catch Philadelphia punk/goofball legends The Dead Milkmen.
The band played through long setlist, covering a lot of lesser known material (which they acknowledged at the end of the show) while sprinkling a few of the hits in there. Rodney was constantly in the crowd during songs, and a small pit with some spurts of crowd surfing happened here and there.
Definitely a solid way to spend a beautiful Saturday.
