>>>The DesignPhiladelphia Festival continues all weekend, and you can keep up with all of the events over here.
>>>And The Cobbs play their first gig in forever with Residuels at the Bryn Athyn Civic and Social Club in Bryn Athyn. What? GPS that shit.

>>>The Switched On Garden, which we cannot get enough of, is going down at Bartram’s Garden as part of DesignPhiladelphia. These plants make cooler music than you. Accept it. Oh, plus King Britt, Spaceship Aloha, and a bunch more people will be performing. It’s going to be great.
>>>And The English Beat and Paul Collins will be performing at the World Cafe, because who ever said you can’t get down on a Sunday night was wrong. Very, very wrong.
