Tomorrow Night At Philebrity Salon: Fishtown Jazz Odyssey

jazzers

Just a quick heads up to let you know that tomorrow night at Philebrity Salon, for the first time ever, we’re presenting a live jazz band. We first learned of Fishtown Jazz Odyssey (pictured) when they sent us an email that read, in part, “You may not be aware of this, but there is a jazz scene developing in Fishtown consisting of late night hangs, lots of whiskey and lots of people yelling ‘blow man, BLOW!’ in a non homo-erotic way.” We were like, “Whhaaaat?” We had to know more. So tomorrow join us and FJO for sets at 10PM and midnight at 700, Second & Fairmount, in NoLibs. Admission, as always, is free. In the meantime, please enjoy the group’s rendition of “Straight No Chaser”, recorded live on a 4-track cassette deck. (Ask someone in your family what a “cassette deck” is.) And in case you’re wondering about the facial hair in the photo above, yes indeed: Some of it is Photoshopped. Why? Sayeth Bennett Daniels of FJO: “Lord knows you can’t have good jazz without a good soul patch on your chin.”
