This past weekend, Philly’s Kurt Vile and his band The Violators returned home to Philly for their second headlining show of 2013 at Union Transfer. It’s been a landmark year for Vile, from the spring release of his LP Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze to the international acclaim and touring that followed, to being honored locally with the Liberty Bell Award on the city’s inaugural Kurt Vile Day in August. Next month, an expanded edition of Daze will be released along with the companion EP It’s a Big World Out There and I’m Scared. Get information on the release here, check out photos and a review of Vile’s previous Union Transfer show here, and see photos from this past weekend in the gallery below.
