To the Beat
Date: May 14, 2013, 1:16 p.m.
Location: Henry and West Hunting Park avenues
The Story: Driving along Henry Avenue just above North Philadelphia, one encounters a welcome sound — aside from the honking cars and roaring ATVs. It’s a sound I associate with the start of an intensely hot but beautifully authentic summer, when kids create beats with their percussion instruments in the middle of traffic, while carrying empty Tupperware containers to collect money to help support the band. Pictured here are members of Loud Cloud Productions posing in the middle of the street.
