Local Artists You Can’t Miss in March

Jenny Drumgoole
She tapes The People’s Court daily, loves John Rambo, has been a Wingette, and—oh, yeah — likes smearing cream cheese and fake blood on herself in the name of art. “It’s a little messy,” she says. Intrigued? See her multimedia work in Moore College’s Jenny Drumgoole: Real Women of Philadelphia through the 15th. Jennydrumgoole.com.

Kurt Vile
Yes, that’s his real name. Yes, he needs a haircut. And yes, the spacey NoLibs dweller is one of the most talked-about singer-songwriters in the country. On March 8th, he releases his second major solo album, “Smoke Ring for My Halo.” Buy it. Everyone else will. Kurtvile.com.

Hai-Ye Ni
The Philadelphia Orchestra’s principal cellist opts for a more intimate setting, joining Filipino piano virtuoso Cecile Licad for a night of Prokofiev and Mendelssohn at the Philosophical Society on the 22nd. The New York Times calls Ni’s technique “stunning.” We couldn’t agree more. Haiyeni.com.
