MilkBoy in center city has been hosting great shows for five years, and it’s time celebrate such an impressive milestone. On August 11th through the 13th, MilkBoy will host a three night anniversary party, and they’re holding nothing back in the process.

Big time out-of-town acts like reggae legends Fishbone and Mississippi rockers The Weeks will headline on August 12th and August 13th, respectively. Plus, it wouldn’t be a MilkBoy party without some of the finest local acts in Philly — so Nik Greeley and The Operators, Ceramic Animal, Foxtrot & The Getdown, Hardwork Movement, Carmalized, and The Last Generation On Film will all be joining the shindig. More acts are expected to be announced as the celebration draws closer. Continue reading →
