    WOW was anyone at the free Rittenhouse show last night? A crazy homeless lady with no legs crawled on stage and was going nuts, screaming and girating and grabbing their legs and mics, she even started scratching at the guitar and lifted up the violinists skirt before being dragged off stage! they handled it well and kept playing a great show and even "dedicated" songs to the homeless lady, Naomi Two-Step. God I love living in Philly!
