Watch Summer Fiction play “Perfume Paper” live in the Divine Lorraine
Philly / NYC pop five-piece Summer Fiction returns to South Philly tomorrow night to headline Boot and Saddle. The band’s lovely sophomore record Himalaya came out in June of 2015, and a newly-released video finds Bill Ricchini and his mates performing its single “Perfume Paper” live in the desolate, graffiti-tagged interior of the Divine Lorraine Hotel on North Broad Street.
It’s the final installment in a series of videos Summer Fiction created for the album, and likewise, it might just be one of the final documents of the Divine Lorraine’s beautiful decay that Philly’s urb-ex community has flocked over the years. Renovations at the towering building been under way for the better part of the year, and Ricchini is looking ahead to his next collection of Summer Fiction songs. For now, bide your time with painted walls and “Perfume Paper” and get tickets and more information on the show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
