This weekend is 4/20, Record Store Day and Earth Day so there are a ton of events surrounding all of these special occasions. Another jam packed weekend full of fun! There are some awesome mega shows this weekend like the early show on Friday at the Barbary with St. James and the Apostles and more... then you can make your way south to the Italian Market for the Bong Hits for Jesus extravaganza with so many amazing bands. Each week there is always one day where it seems like you may as well just spin a wheel or roll some dice to choose the best show to attend because there are so many good ones on the schedule.
As always, I only link the Philly area artists (city, suburbs, Jersey, Delaware, with moderate liberties). No offense to the other folks on these shows from other towns... Also I probably won't include Sold-Out shows, since you can't go if you don't already have your tix.
