When David Lynch moved to Philadelphia in the late 1960s to attend PAFA, he discovered a city that was both terrifying and inspiring. Explore the neighborhood just blocks away from PAFA that so electrified Lynch’s imagination with two guides: Hidden City’s Peter Woodall and Lynch–and Eraserhood–aficionado, Bob Bruhin. During this one-and-a-half hour walking tour, we’ll delve into the area’s industrial history, as well as the sights and sounds that inspired Lynch’s movies, particularly Eraserhead.
When: September 16, 2018 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: Meet at the southeast corner of 13th and Wood Sts.

Hot Snakes / Vundabar at Union Transfer UT Newsletter: http://ticketf.ly/1RqX4bJ Event Feed: http://on.fb.me/1Xjri0B Hot Snakes Swami John Reis and Rick Froberg have been making noises together since high school. In 1986 it was the post-hardcore chime of Pitchfork. In 1991 it was the sprawling, multi-faceted arrangements of Drive Like Jehu. In 1999 it was the lean, mean swagger of Hot Snakes.
