It’s been 8 years, 7 months and 28 days since Sleater-Kinney played in Philadelphia. I was really lucky to be in the audience on July 31, 2006 at the old Starlight Ballroom because there were only three more shows left on their goodbye tour.

Undie Rock Band The Skivvies to Make Philly Debut


It won’t be your typical night at the Kimmel Center: When cheekily named “undie rock” group The Skivvies take the stage, they’re naked (well, minus their skivvies) before they finish singing their first number.

But they aren’t the only ones to strip down during their shows. They’ve had Laura Benanti, Lena Hall, Matt Doyle, Andy Karl, Perez Hilton, Orfeh, and Alice Ripley perform in their underpants. Now, the notorious rock group are on the way to Philly for a Valentine’s Day weekend extravaganza at the Kimmel Center’s SEI Innovation Studio, February 12th through 14th. Read more »
