All hail king Kurt! Kurt Vile just released the royally awesome new video for his latest single from his brilliant new album Wakin On A Pretty Daze.
Before our grace takes his spot on the indie rock throne, he’s also set to be honored later this summer by his hometown of Philadelphia. By mayoral decree Aug. 28 has been recognized at Kurt Vile Day in Philadelphia, a day in which Vile will not only provide a free performance in the City Hall Courtyard, but will also receive a Liberty Bell Award.
Vile’s recognition is the highest honor the city can bestow its native citizens and is presented in recognition of Kurt Vile’s outstanding achievements. If you needed any further proof of his reign over Philly then look no further than this Tom Scharpling-directed video that shows Vile paraded through the streets and dining on hoagies fit for kings.
