Chanticleer Gardens is located outside the city limits of Philadelphia. A great escape from urban life- spend the entire day or just an afternoon strolling the grounds, enjoying a picnic, [like I did] or reading the paper. There are a great amount of plants growing throughout, as well as unique architectural elements scattered at regular intervals along the pathways. The estate is the main structure and serves as the entrance into the gardens.
Members of the Brooklyn-based band, The Defibulators passed cornfield after cornfield as they drove down a winding rural highway in Indiana, en route to their next gig. They were in the middle of their latest tour- playing throughout the Midwest, then heading back to rock the East Coast. I spoke with them after a long night of pulse-rising debauchery. (It had been a good night...)
We talked about the inception of the band, keeping it together, and if they've ever witnessed a brawl while performing, you know- the important things. So hold onto your hat, as we go for a wild ride with the Defibulators...
