WATCH: Bastards of Earle Sing Downtown Girl

Video for a new song revels in its Philly-ness.

Bastards of Earle: Downtown Girl (Acoustic Version) from Bastards of Earle on Vimeo.


The video description: “Josh and I tramped the streets of Philly looking for the heart of Downtown Girl, finding it in the characters of Rittenhouse Square and the beauty glinting off the mosaics of The Magic Gardens. It’s a simple start–stripped down to acoustic and vocals. No tricks, nothing up my sleeve. But, it’s a glimpse into the city I love, the loves I’ve lost and the music that keeps me going. After all…everybody knows she’s just a Downtown Girl.”
