Foo Fighters Get Their Own Official Day in Richmond, Virginia

Not to be outdone by David Bowie Day in Chicago

Not to be outdone by David Bowie’s recent “Official Day” announcement in Chicago, Richmond, Virginia has announced that today will officially be declared “Foo Fighters Day” in the city. The honor will be bestowed upon the Sonic Highways band on this particular day because it also happens to be the night of the rock group’s long-awaited, crowd-funded concert in Richmond. The city’s mayor wrote out a pretty official looking proclamation (via Consequence of Sound) that you can read below, but let it be known that today is also probably the Tilt campaign organizers’ best day of all time. Happy Foo Fighters Day, one and all.
