Budweiser Made In America Music Festival Day 2

Day 2 of M.I.A. packed just as much of a musical punch as the first.  All the acts that hit the stage brought their A game with them.  Turn UP!

Miguel brought the sexy when he hit the stage.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis brought a little West Cost flavor to M.I.A. and duo did not disappoint.

Calvin Harris could not be stopped on the 1's and 2's

Calvin Harris could not be stopped on the 1’s and 2’s and his visual effects were CRAZY!

Last but certainly not least Nine Inch Nails closed the festival out and blew the crowd away with their awesome performance.

Semana de la Indpendencia: Concierto del 4 de Julio!!!

El concierto del verano fue fantástico!  Filadelfia es una de las escenas de música más talentosa en todo el país – la evidencia estuvo en la plataforma del “4th of July Jam”.  Cada golpe del tambor (hecho por ?uestlove) and cada acorde cantado fue de la corazón.  Los cantantes fueron The Roots, Jill Scott, Hunter Hayes, Grace Potter, Ben Taylor J. Cole, John Mayer y Ne-Yo.  Kevin Hart volvió a su ciudad original como presentador del concierto y añadió sus bromas queridas.  Tuvimos una vista tras bastidores, nuestra propia “jam session” y una mini sesión fotográfica con una reportera de 6ABC.  Ya hemos dicho que Philly es el mejor lugar pasar el Día de la Independencia de América.  No hace falta ningúna otra prueba!

Independence Week: 4th of July Jam!!

The concert of the summer jammed!  Philly is one of the most talented music scenes in the country – the proof was on last night’s 4th of July Jam stage.  Each tap of the drum (done by ?uestlove) and every cord sang was full of heart.  Those in the lineup were The Roots, Jill Scott, Hunter Hayes, Grace Potter, Ben Taylor J. Cole, John Mayer and Ne-Yo.  Kevin Hart came home to host the concert and add his funny-isms.  We had a backstage view of all the excitement, our own little jam session and a mini photo shoot with one of 6ABC’s reporters.  We said Philly is the best place to spend Independence Day.  No further evidence required!

Jill Scott, straight off the stage.  Strong performance, per usual!
