Rittenhouse Musicians

RATING current Rittenhouse Square street musicians playing for the lunchtime crowd:
-The guitar-wielding goatteed folk singer is much better than last year, when he was afraid to belt his songs out, and was frankly embarrassing.
-The flute guy is horrendous. He's got to go.
One man's opinion.

Big Lit Show

I'm told there's an explosive lit event upcoming at South Philly's famous Dive Bar promising to blow the doors off the place. By repute, it's way better than the tame literary fare being presented at the Free Library on the Parkway. How does one rescue literature? By giving people excitement-- breaking the stale lit-reading stereotype.

Here are the details:
"Toiling in Obscurity."
The Dive Bar
947 East Passyunk Avenue
Friday 3/26/10 at 7 pm.

Organizer Jaime Fountaine presents dynamic readings from:
Christian TeBordo
poet Justin Audia
Jeremy Eric Tenenbaum
Blaise Fountaine
and Jaime, along with songs by
Emily and Micah McGraw.

Carmina Burana!

The Pennsylvania Ballet's "Carmina Burana" is the ultimate artistic experience. No one does it better. It is-- mind-blowing. I was very fortunate to grab a last minute ticket to Friday night's performance at the Academy of Music.
