    Courtney Barnett - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - May 16th, 2018
    The sophomore album from the Boston trio Palehound, A Place I'll Always Go, is a frank look at love and loss, cushioned by indelible hooks and gently propulsive, fuzzed-out rock. Ellen Kempner, Palehound's vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter explains, "A lot of it is about loss and learning how to let yourself evolve past the pain and the weird guilt that comes along with grief."

Philly families mourn their lost, make 9-mile March to End Homicide

When the gunman opened fire near 8th and Spring Garden streets, Phillips’ death was a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When the police began their investigation, Ferguson said “he laid out there for 45 minutes before he was actually discovered.”

Near Broad and Tioga streets, Taron Mitchell remembered his friend Mike Williams.

    Philly families mourn their lost, make 10-mile March to End Homicide
    Ferguson feels especially anxious about gun violence now, she said, and sees the ripple effects in her community. "Because the streets are unsafe, you feel like your family is unsafe," she said. "You're scared to walk the streets, you can't sit on your steps, you're scared to send your children to the store, so it affects everybody."
