The concrete median just south of City Hall is a popular spot for photos. Wedding, tourist, selfies – they all look great with the ornate building standing behind and the lights glowing up Broad St. It’s also the spot Shannen Moser chose for the final installment of a live video series she’s been doing this summer, filming Oh, My Heart closer “Dirt and Water” well past sundown as cars fly by.
If you made it to Circadian Rhythms‘ show at PhilaMOCA last month, lucky you – you probably got your hands on A Peculiar Kind of Afternoon, the local art poppers’ beautifully constructed new full-length. For the rest of us, the wait is finally over: the band is releasing the LP via digital outlets today.
