Snooze Alarm: Your late-arriving link roundup, 9/16/10

Philadelphia’s music scene doesn’t get up early enough for a morning roundup. While the rest of the world is sipping on their lattes and reading about international affairs, we’re nursing our hangovers and trying to shake the ringing out of our ears. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to (eventually) stay informed. Snooze Alarm presents Philly’s most important local-music-related news, whenever the scene finally gets around to making it (and the rest of us are ready to read it).

The Charlatans UK drummer collapses during last night’s show at Johnny Brenda’s “The Charlatans UK, who played last night right here in Philadelphia, were on stage at local Fishtown favorite Johnny Brenda’s. In the middle of the group’s song ‘Tellin’ Stories’…talented drummer Jon Brookes (who has incidentally been lighting up the stage with his fantastic playing for the group’s US dates) suddenly seemed to stop. The band and crowd slowly came to the realization that Jon needed medical attention and was having a seizure. Thankfully there was a doctor in attendance at the show to help get Jon the help that he needed and he is now in recovery at a local hospital.” (Girl About Town)
