Kung Fu Necktie
The song that defined 2003, and probably an entire generation, gets a party named after it in Fishtown. Other than The Killers, DJ Grotzy Versace will play other early 2000s indie stars like The Strokes, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Shiny Toy Guns, and more. Grab your crew and sing “Mr. Brightside” at the top of your lungs.

Laurel Hill Cemetery
Always one to organize an exceptional grounds’ tour, Laurel Hill takes visitors on a jaunt around the burial ground to learn about the life and fortunes of some of its most famous residents like an industrialist who went bankrupt trying to buy votes and a con artist who took extraordinary measures to get rich. It all sounds very familiar, doesn’t it?
