“[… This Fucking City ] is the end result of a years worth of people and musicians delivering,” it says on page three of the booklet, and it does seem like a massive undertaking. Not sure where it might be made available for purchase, but if anyone in the liner notes—Billy Barton, Rob Shit, Joe Vigil, anyone living in Goathouse or Nothinghouse­—has the answer and 
is reading this, drop me a line at 
bmcmanus@philadelphiaweekly.com. We’ll put the info up on our music blog. 

Fans of irony will be happy to hear Hard Rock Cafe is playing host to live music this week as Philly’s own GrindCity (no space!) and others provide the soundtrack to tourists downing Hard Rock nachos or Tupelo chicken tenders. You’ll want to listen for GC’s Eagles tribute, “Go Green,” which didn’t make my mix because I thought it was a song espousing the virtues of sustainable 
energy. ■

Fri., Aug. 21, 10pm. Free. With GrindCity, New Liberty + Recent Hours. Hard Rock Cafe, 12th and Market sts. 215.238.1000. hardrock.com

“I just hope that he will be able to resolved his problem without using any secured loans. On August 13, 2009, Vick signed a one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. He will earn $1.6 million, of which no amount is guaranteed. The contract also contains a team option for the 2010 season worth $5 million. Vick will be able to participate in all team practices and meetings, as well as the Eagles' last two preseason games. He will then be eligible for reinstatement in week six at the latest.”
