We’ve been flying under the radar a little bit lately because of the Independence Day holiday (Happy Fourth!) and the Live8 concert that was in Philadelphia this weekend. The PowerPage posse was in attendance at a sweet little spot under the trees where we could see the stage (ok, on our tippey toes). Highlights included Black Eyed Peas (grab their new CD “Monkey Business” today), Will Smith, Jay-Z, Kayne West and, of course, Stevie Wonder who dedicated his set to the late Luther Vandross. A high quality show for a high quality town. Philadelphia mayor John Street and organizer Bob Geldoff deserve a lot of credit. One of the most amazing things about Live8 (besides the lack of beer sales) was the fact that they weren’t asking for any money. Support the Live8 cause and sign the list.
