Joe Jackson, Todd Rundgren rock Philly

I had a front-row seat to see music legends Joe Jackson and Upper Darby, PA’s own Todd Rundgren perform (with opening act Ethel, a New York-based string quartet) at The Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall in Philadelphia, April 24, 2005.

What a freakin’ awesome show! Joe and Todd are personal music heroes of mine and to be able to see them that close in such an acoustically pleasing and incredible venue like Verizon Hall (its design is based on that of cello’s and was built specifically as a home for the Philadelphia Orchestra) was absolutely mind-blowing.

The photo was taken with my Motorola v265 camera phone at the end of the show as Joe (left, in purple coat) and Todd (right, in yellow coat) — with Ethel behind them — bid adieu to the crowd.
