This Weekend: Remember, Remember, The First (Weekend) Of December

FRIDAY:

>>> Guitars? Title Fight, Tigers Jaw, Pianos Become The Teeth, and Single Mothers got tons of guitars — loud ones too — at a sold out Union Transfer.
>>> Are you part of that small sliver of venn diagaram that are fans of both pro wrestling and art? Then PhilaMOCA is the place to be for The Blank Canvas Wrestling Art Show, featuring Chikara Pro wrestlers in full costume, wrestling themed art, Philadelphia Comedy Wrestling, a wrestling impersonation contest and FREE BEER. Do it.
>>> Aging gracefully in rock’n'roll is a daunting proposition, but Graham Parker and the Rumour are doing a swell job of it. You can see them play the TLA tonight with The Figgs.
>>> And local fella Chris Kasper plays Underground Arts with Ross Bellenoit (who is celebrating his EP Release) and Levee Drivers.

SATURDAY:

>>> The Brooklyn-based (of course) electronic-pop duo Tanlines, touring behind their much-ballyhooed Mixed Emotions, plays Union Transfer with Supreme Cuts.
>>> Comedian, actor, and man-who-has-succesfully-had-Jeff Goldblum-play-his-dad Nick Kroll is previewing his new Comedy Central show KROLL SHOW with Jessi Klein at a sold-out Trocadero.
>>> And break out your most comfortable dancing shoes for Keys N Krates and Les Professionnels at Milkboy. It’s Saturday night, get down a little.

SUNDAY:

>>> Get a bunch of your Holiday shopping done (if you’ve still got some to do) at the Piazza’s Winter Market. From 11AM to 4PM, there will be a ton of vendors, live music, Santa Claus, free gift wrapping, and tons more. If you can brave the cold.
>>> If rasslin’ art isn’t enough, check out some actual rasslin’ at Chikara’s Under The Hood at 4PM at The Troc. Get your fix is high-flying fun.
>>> And you’ve got a full-bill at PhilaMOCA with Delicate Steve, Arc in Round, Banned Books and Bad Braids. For the alliterative among us.
