Mannequins and hookah bars and Philly

20110511-090948.jpgSitting in a funky hookah bar with a mannequin before I walk back to The Tin Angel for my show here in Philly. The bar is called Sphinx and there people from Egypt all smoking some Aorta of tobacco and singing along lazily to some middle eastern sounding song while passing around a pipe. No one is speaking English and I feel like I am actually in Egypt until I look across the street an the Phillies baseball game on a tv from the bar across the street. It's all pretty cool and the weather is perfect. Everything is calm and all is well on this block of this planet at this particular moment in time.
