I have been waiting close to two decades for this concert. While I have a pretty diverse music palate, heavy metal has always had a special place in my heart.

On New Years' Eve, Philly's self-described constant hitmaker Kurt Vile rang in the new year with a surprisingly mellow yet rocking evening. Not straying far from the extravaganza promised, the night was filled with revelry, Jell-O shots at midnight, ironic year-end jokes, and, of course, Philly-grown and Philly-approved tunes.
There are not enough adjectives to describe the performance that went down on Tuesday night in a certain former burlesque theatre in Fishtown. The show that occurred-nay, the experience-featured the effortlessly theatrical A Silent Film .

The stage was dark and the room fidgeted with anticipation as fans gossiped fervently and planned their fantastical strategies for the time came when they saw their idol for the first time or, maybe, again.
