    putting together a march residency at ortlieb's on wednesdays for anyone who's interested. the shows are free with the budget going to charities decided on by the bands; there's also going to be games and interviews and giveaways and my band's going to attempt to cover songs by all the bands we're having on. so yeah, should be a fun time.

    3/11 we somehow landed bethlehem steel and washer so be sure to stop out for that one.

    @Cody sounds like fun!

    anyone ever go to Milkboy for a show? Ive never been - whats it like?

    It's chaos; be kind.

    I like it. But it's a very narrow space, so if a show is sold out, it can kind of suck if you don't get a decent spot towards the stage

    5 Central Bucks Schools are closed today due to possible Coronavirus exposure. Looks like it’s (officially) arrived in the Philly area. Stay safe everyone

    Reports saying that someone within the CB community came in contact with someone out of state who possibly has it. Still a good idea to use caution.

    We have a faculty meeting at the end of the day, I'm assuming it's about what we're gonna do when it fully breaks out here

    I'm already working from home four days a week for the next month or so because my office is under construction. Would not be surprised to see that upped to five

    yeah, we're having an emergency meeting today after school. gotta imagine it's going to be something along the lines of asking us to start creating emergency lesson plans.


    Germantown Academy is also closed for the next week and a half.

    I’ll be working from home for the next ~4 weeks or so, if not longer. Pretty crazy stuff. Doesn’t feel real to be honest. What’s everyone else place of employment doing?

    I work in a restaurant in Fishtown so I'll probably be working unless the city mandates it.

    I definitely think it’s a very proactive move on my companies part to make us work from home, I really don’t see this getting to a crazy widespread level here but I guess I really have no basis for that. Can’t say I hate not having to take the El right now with the way things are.

    I’m supposed to go to Cancun next week for 5 days and I’m starting to feel some type of way about that trip...
