Photo of the Day May 13th

... which isn't actually a photo at all, but a video. A first for our Photo-of-the-Day!
Prior to closing two months ago, the Embassy Hotel in London's Old East Village was an alternative music hot spot, featuring both up-and-coming local and well established National and International punk and metal bandsAside from its long musical history, its exterior is well known to Londoners for an amazing collection of graffiti art and tile work, some of which was expected to be preserved when the building was demolished to make way for a new 150 unit high rise condo. It looks like that preservation isn't to be, as the Embassy hotel went up in flames last night... Chris was nearby and caught some of the action for posterity.
