This Weekend: A Pirate’s Life For VHS

FRIDAY:
>>> Low Cut Connie, along with Adam and Dave’s Bloodline, bring local good-old-fashioned rock and roll to Johnny Brenda’s. The kind of rock and roll that you enjoy more fully with drink in hand. You know, rock and roll.
>>> Reignwolf, will be doing the guitar-and-drums-at-the-same-time thing at Ortlieb’s tonight, which is just rubbing it in, because most people can barely play one.
>>> And the debut of Video Pirates first feature-length masterpiece will go down at PhilaMOCA. Among the found footage strewn together will be a history of Beanie Babies, dog training videos, “an over-the-top faith-based exploration into the dangers of internet pornography,” and more. We Hate Movies will open the show by doing some live movie-bashing over some of the worst films they’ve seen. Also, Narragansett will supply free refreshments.

SATURDAY:
>>> Jonah Matranga of Far will be playing an intimate show at the First Unitarian Church Side Chapel. The dude’s so DIY he’s got name-your-own-price merch.
>>> For the drinkers: The PA Beer Fest brings over 100 brewers to the PA Convention Center, or go a little historic with the Dickens Pub Crawl.
>>> Interpol lead singer and man without facial expressions Paul Banks is bringing songs off of his solo record, Banks, to the Troc.
>>> And blues/soul singer/guitarist Gary Clark Jr., who you probably know from commercials, is playing at the TLA.

SUNDAY:
>>> The indie-folks in Horse Feathers are bringing their Pacific Northwest style (is there any other kind) folk tunes to Johnny Brenda’s, along with Frank Fairfield.
>>> And since it’s Veteran’s Day, why not check out free admission for active and veteran military personnel to the National Constitution Center, a living history tour, free admission to military Personnel and their families at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, or check out the Band of Brothers Benefit Concert at World Cafe.
