>>> As noted earlier, it’s First Friday, so bone up.
>>> In the realm of LIVING MUSIC, the much-hyped Daughn Gibson debuts at Ortlieb’s; Low Cut Connie plays at North Star Bar; Caveman with Ape School & The Homophones at Milkboy; and of course Making Time continues its run of events with bands usually only heard in American Apparel.
>>> Did you know? Holi is the Indian/Hindu festival of colors, which sometimes involves the throwing of handfuls of colored powder. It has endured for hundreds if not thousands of years without being adopted by Burning Man-ish white people, but alas, no more. Still, this looks like a lot more fun and weird-in-a-good-way than the cat face party or the big pillow fight (actual recent events in Philadelphia, no shit), so what the hell do we know. Go for it.
>>> CINCO DE MAYO, YO! Phoodie has recommends like one, two, three. Meanwhile, a conflict of interest prevents us from mentioning anything about the BITBY Cinco De Mayo Jam at all. Oh shit.
>>> Attn. nerds: Third Annual Book Fair at the Crane Arts Building. But more importantly, it’s FREE COMICS DAY!
>>> Ralph Stollenwerk dirty-ass under-the-El art opening yo!
>>> Someone much healthier and more well-adjusted than you is probably running in the Broad Street Run. Drag your ass outta bed and go support them.
>>> And finally, East Hundred plays their last gig ever at Johnny Brenda’s. It’s all part of the grand tradition of Philly bands writing a bunch of great songs, getting their shit together, creating a fan base and then breaking up. Why do we do this to ourselves? Essays due 9am Monday morning. Have a great weekend, kids!
