Big thanks to all who came out to our Red Bull Sound Select show featuring Anthony Green from Circa Survive last Thursday.

People began lining up to get into Underground Arts well before 5:00 pm. By the time we opened the doors at 8 pm, several hundred people were lined up along Callowhill Street, going around the corner and down 12th Street.

Those people wound up at the front of the stage in a packed house for a pretty amazing show.

Mannequin Pussy opened up the night with a loud, aggressive and energetic performance. They introduced their brand new bass player, Bear, who added that driving beat. CRUISR followed with a steady stream of summer-sounding pop songs. And then Nashville’s Boom Forest made their Philadelphia debut performance. DJ Wesley Bunch from Suburban Living kept the party going all night.

The fans who clearly arrived to see Anthony Green really took to the opening acts. They moshed with Mannequin Pussy, waved their hands in the air for CRUISR and swayed along with Boom Forest’s beautiful melodies.

Around 11:15, Anthony Green strolled out to the stage unannounced, simply with a guitar in hand. From the very first lyrics, the hundreds of people who had been waiting for hours began singing. And they sang along with him through his hour-long set.

Great vibes all night, with the musicians – even Anthony Green – mingling with the crowd throughout the evening.
