The Iguanas

Pure Kismet.
The Iguanas will be playing at one of the finest venues in the Philly area, WXPN's World Cafe on Friday, October 10th. A local Wilmington non-profit was looking for a name band to anchor their annual fund raising celebration. The Iguanas dropped in their lap. So, on Thursday, October 9th, in downtown Wilmington, DE, the city set up a portable stage, closed off a few streets, laid down some hay for seating, and let the performers do their thing. It was a summer-like evening, temps in the high 70's, Phillies at home against the LA Dodgers in the NLCS, and great music out in the night light streets of Senator Biden's home town. No sightings of the Dem VP taht night, though.

The Iguanas played quite a few of my favorites including the ethereal

First Kiss Is Free (From their album Plastic Silver 9 Volt Heart)

They performed quite a few songs from their new release, including

Pelican Bay (From their newest album If You Should Ever Fall On Hard Times)

Review of album to follow in the coming days. The Flip Video still amazes me with its ease of use and quality of picture ( DOES look a lot better as a file on a PC)
