Every so often you attend a show which you can later say to your friends “I was there,” this was one of those nights. It’s called “Live At The Dive” which is sponsored by Bud Light and Philadelphia’s top alternative music station, – RADIO104.5. What a fantastic idea, take a very large act, and place them in a very small venue (not so much a dive). In this case it was The Struts at the Milkboy located in the heart of Philadelphia. This was a very tough show to attend, as you could only get a ticket if you were randomly selected from various online channels through the radio station.
The band then went to covers, Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark,” Chis Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” and The Rolling Stones’ “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” which the crowd thoroughly enjoyed. Closing the show were “Ol’ Switcheroo,” and “Could Have Been Me.” A remarkable evening with such a great band in a very intimate setting, it’s no wonder Luke jumped into the crowd to sing with everyone. I can’t remember the last time he could do that?
