If you drive there, I'm not quite sure what the parking situation is
like. The Electric Factory is nearby, and my Philly friends say there
are several pay lots nearby because of that club. I think there's
regular street parking too, but seeing as how it'll be a Friday night
in Philly, you'll need a little luck getting a spot.
If you're not familiar with the area, I recommend bringing a map of
the immediate area. Most of the streets are one-way, which isn't a
big problem, but trying to get back onto I-676 or I-95 can be a bit of

card you used and a printout of your confirmation e-mail. I've never
actually needed the printout when using Will Call, but it's a smart
thing to do in case there are problems. (I've needed the credit card
and photo ID several times, though.)
While we're at it, I have been to Webster Hall in New York. It's a
pretty nice venue. (The urinals even have ice in them!) Parking in
the area shouldn't be a problem since it'll be on a Sunday, and meters
aren't enforced on Sundays. Even if they were enforced, free
parking's limited but attainable if you're willing to walk a couple of
blocks. (I think most of it is around E 10th St & 3rd Ave.) Subway
access isn't perfect but isn't difficult either. Just remember, once
again, that the show will be 18+. If you're under 18, do what you
must to get to Philly.
See you at the shows!
