I'm not a huge Pearl Jam fan or anything, but this was the second time I saw them and they seem to always put on a great performance.  I saw them a few July Fourths ago in Camden when they were playing with fireworks going off.  This time around I scored a ticket the day of the show which ended up being the first row behind the stage.  Unfortunately my camera died after taking literally FOUR pictures.  I posted two of them here.  I'd say my favorite part of the night was Rockin in the Free World with Sleater-Kinney.  Eddie and one of the SK ladies were bashing tambourines together and then dancing around having a blast.  These are two of my fail safe things for a band to do: 1) play Neil Young and 2) act like you are really having a blast.

Good times.  You can download the whole show already from PJ's website.  I believe it is 10 bucks, but I haven't tried for myself.

Bud Light made a special "Dilly, Dilly!" commercial for Philly

Oh, you thought we here in Philadelphia were special? You thought Bud Light liked Eagles fans more than they liked Vikings fans?

Wrong.

Bud Light likes fans who purchase their beer.

But yes, Bud Light did make a special little promo for Eagles fans playing off their "Dilly, Dilly!" campaign that for some strange reason many people seem to like. And get this, it uses "Philly, Philly!"

Because it rhymes.

You can watch that right here and the three other spots they made for the Viking, Patriots, and Jaguars below. The Patriots' one is probably the best.
