Murphy's Law @ the Khyber in Philly (via)
Three men who showed up in full Nazi regalia to a hardcore punk show at an Old City [Philadelphia] bar Friday night were attacked by as many as 50 people on the streets after leaving the venue, according to witnesses and club management.Philebrity points out that there was "a gay-themed DJ night" going on upstairs at the same club too. Awesome.
The headlining band at the Khyber that night was Murphy's Law, led by front man Jimmy G, who formerly went by the moniker Jimmy Gestapo.
In an e-mail to the Daily News, Jimmy G confirmed that some guys had showed up to the concert in "full Nazi field dress."
"And they did get their asses kicked," he wrote. "Again."
Khyber owner Stephen Simons, who was not at the show, said he had been told that the crowd inside "largely ignored and mocked" the three men. But after they exited the club, on 2nd Street near Chestnut, they were attacked by a group of up to 50 people, he said. "I guess being on 2nd Street in SS uniforms on a Friday night is a way to incite a semi-riot," Simons said. [Philadelphia Daily News] (via)
No pictures of the actual incident, but one night after Philly, the band played at Ralph's Diner in Worcester, Mass. Jimmy discussed the incident on stage. And though some people are saying maybe the nazis didn't get beat up, Jimmy says they were bloody (and that he warned them). Video of that below...
