LOUD! FAST! PHILLY! Episode 17: Grace Ambrose, Ramsey Beyer, Mikey Cantor, and Max Weinstein-Bacal of DIY PHL

March 24, 2013

Joseph A. Gervasi interviews the four members of DIY PHL (Max Weinstein-Bacal, Michael Cantor, Ramsey Beyer, and Grace Ambrose) about how they came into the DIY punk scene and all came to live Philadelphia. Their DIY PHL website and poster/flyer is a crucial resource for Philly’s underground music scene and it’s fascinating to learn about what inspired them, their sense of ethics, and the current state of the Philly scene. These are great folks!
