Lady Punk Brunch

Posted on January 28, 2013 by

This week was a rare, really cold week in Philly. It was all it took to make me really start counting down for spring.

We started out the week with a house dinner/meeting.

As silly as house meetings seem sometimes (it’s so easy to be bitter or make fun of stuff like that), our meetings have actually been really productive and good for the dynamic of the house.

Especially since our schedules are all different and our house is big enough that sometimes we don’t all see each other for a good while.

This was honestly an extremely tough nanny week. That, compounded with the fact that my book deadline for edits is next week, and that we were scrambling to get a photobook made for DIYPHL, made me completely exhausted and stressed out by Friday.

On Thursday night we dropped by the Black Orchid porch, which is a punk house that cooks big meals every other week and leaves it on their porch with to-go containers. You leave 6 bucks in a bucket and take as much as you want in a container. They also serve up food at a lot of punk shows these days.

Mikey was going on a little weekend tour this weekend with David (Spoonboy), so they practiced together all of Thursday night while I worked on my book.

Friday night was the show, at The Great Indoors. Pat Graham played first.

Then Sam.

Then Mikey, with accompaniment by David, and vice versa. It was a fun way to spend a snowy night.

After the show we hung out at Mikey’s, ate Lucky’s and watched the Simpsons.

On Saturday morning, Mikey and I squared up the rest of the photobook before he left for his next show that night in Connecticut.

I think it’s gonna look so good.

On Sunday, Mikey’s roommate Sara hosted a lady punk brunch.
It was really fun and much needed. There are so many rad ladies in Philly and it felt great to see a bunch of them in one room.

Lots of other folks were there too. It was super fun and something we’re going to try to do once a month.

and, of course, Sprocket, the ultimate lady punk.
