Philadelphia's "Pissed Jeans"

Philadelphia’s “Pissed Jeans”

So I’m on the road in the great Northeast where snow is causing havoc and causing me to the reconsider my wardrobe. Luckily, by the time I arrived to Philadelphia rain had dissipated the snow and it was mid 40s. Now I’m heading to Boston and I have a feeling I won’t be so lucky. That place got pounded.

I don’t know much about Philadelphia, previously having only visited for the day, typically taking a train or renting a car and driving from NYC. But this time, I stayed overnight in downtown Philadelphia near Chinatown and got a better feel for the U.S.’s 4th largest city.

Philadelphia, as you might expect of a historic American city, has a long and historic history with punk rock and hardcore. You can read more about that HERE.

But yesterday, while perusing their weekly Philadelphia City Paper I noticed front and center on the cover was a punk band Pissed Jeans. Now when is the last time your free weekly featured a punk band on the cover? I don’t know much about Pissed Jeans other than what I read and then researched at their label “Sub Pop Records” here.

But what I read and heard, I liked and thought you might like it too.

Check out City Paper’s article on the band here.
