Philly’s music scene lost a true friend, supporter and participant a few months back when Daniel James Krawiec left this plane. As many folks in a variety of scenes here could tell you, Dan lived for music, and liked nothing more than going to to shows and rocking the fuck out. Not only was Dan one of the very, very few R5 Productions lifetime pass holders, he also threw a show/party every year on his birthday. With that in mind, Dan’s friends have decided to continue the tradition, and so Anchorfest will take place next Friday, July 27th, at Union Transfer with a whole bill of bands that were near and dear to Dan — not least of them, The Dead Milkmen, who’ve just been announced as the surprise headliner. Proceeds go to Providence West Chester, and tickets are available here. Punk Rock Dan would not have had it any other way.
