Andy Frasco & The U.N. performed at The Foundry in Philadelphia, PA on October 30, 2019 — and I, Jordan August, was there to capture some of the drunken antics. Yep, in this “Photo Flashback” we’re taking a trip down memory lane with Andy Frasco and his band of musical pranksters. Crazy ass show!

Andy Frasco and gang hit The Foundry like a fucking hurricane of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. The band had a blast in Philly and Frasco was in rare form. This was an epic experience for all of the audience members in attendance.

When it comes to an Andy Frasco show, one thing is certain…nothing. You never know what to expect. His high energy antics and buzzing stage presence instantly have you forgetting about any and all negativity going on in the world. His music and positive vibes allow you to just simply enjoy the optimistic party atmosphere.

Listening to an album, watching a video or hearing a story does not do the band justice. The amount of passion and individuality Frasco and company bring during every second of each show is unmatched. I strongly advise buying yourself a couple tickets to one of the bands live shows (take a friend!). These shows are so much fun!

That really sums it all up. I’m surprised everyone made it out of the show free of injury. If you haven’t seen Andy Fracso live, you’re missing out. One day you’ll regret not catching him perform live in the beginning. This dude is going to blow up!
