Five Observations About The Greatness Of The Italian Market Festival Last Weekend
1. Holy smokes that was a lot of people.
2. And more than that, it was a lot of every kind of people, something that feels like it’s not always shared in the New Festivaldelphia. Better still, the vibe was great — we walked up and down the stretch twice, with people literally ass to elbow, and not a single bad vibe was to be had. Is this what Philadelphia Memorial Day 1983 was like?
4. Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket played “Let’s Go Crazy,” and it was well received indeed.
5. But there was also some “Peter Piper” too. And for that, we were grateful indeed.
