Happy Kurt Vile Day!

As previously noted, today is officially Kurt Vile Day in Philadelphia, thanks to the great work of the City of Philadelphia Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, who know sweet rock action (and upstanding citizenship, as exemplified by Mr. Vile) when they see/hear it. The City of Philadelphia is celebrating Kurt Vile Day by presenting Kurt with the Liberty Bell, the City’s highest highest honor, and he will be playing a free concert in the City Hall Courtyard today at 5:30pm to mark the occasion.

The above poster was designed by Steve Powers in connection with the Philadelphia Poster Guild. For those of you in Philadelphia, limited edition prints will be signed by ESPO and given away today at the event. First come first served!

And here’s a Q&A with Kurt in conjunction with KV Day on Philadelphia Magazine’s site:
