This Weekend: Dark And Stormy

snowwwww

FRIDAY:

>>> Check out the updated accumulation totals from Philly Weather above, and watch yourselves out there.
>>> Attn. sore losers: Yeah, you probably didn’t win our ticket giveaway for the Beak> and Instamatic show at Underground Arts. Boo hoo. Go anyway.
>>> It’s a packed bill at Milkboy for Doylestown alt-folkers Former Belle‘s record release show. Also on the bill are Commonwealth Choir, Geology, and the sweet sweet harmonies of Market East.
>>> In postponements: The John Denver Rocky Mountain High Concert, which would have featured a mix of live strings and archived John Denver video, has been postponed by The Keswick Theater due to the weather forecast.

>>> Indie hip-hoppers take notice: Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic, and Busdriver will be at Union Transfer, likely making you feel cooler than you actually are.
>>> The Philadelphia Arts Tattoo Convention is going on at the Convention Center all weekend, so head on over to get inked up and to get the autograph of porn star Joanna Angel, who you totally didn’t know was going to be there according to what you’ll tell your girlfriend.
>>> Or for something to keep you warm on this long, cold, snowy, winter’s night: The Peek-a-Boo Revue Valentine’s Special, entitled Blow Me A Kiss, is going down at the Troc.

SATURDAY:

>>> Holopaw (featuring John Orth, also part of Ugly Cassanova), Love As Laughter, and Philebrity Awards nominee Little Big League are playing an early-ish show at Kungfu Necktie, with the whole thing starting at 7:30PM.

>>> All the cool kids will be at Johnny Brenda’s to catch Philly’s own Ape School, and Portland’s Ramona Falls.
>>> In postponements: The 30th Street Craft Market has been moved to February 23rd.
>>> And break out the dancing shoes (or if the snow is still a problem, dancing boots) and head over to Underground Arts for an Indie-pop trifecta from Vacationer, Robert DeLong, and Cruiser.

SUNDAY:

>>> Well … uh … it’s Sunday, and there really isn’t much going on. Spend the day in recovery from the partying/cold, relax, keep warm, and tune in to Downton Abbey. Take it easy, you’ve earned it.
