Last week, Postmodern Jukebox, the sensational musical group lead by the talented Scott Bradlee, released a bluegrass hoedown cover of Nicki Minaj’s R-rated track “Anaconda.” Let’s just say the internet went crazy:
In less than a week, this utterly catchy mix (yes, I’ve downloaded it) got over one-million hits on YouTube. Lucky enough for us in Philadelphia, the band, which infuses bluegrass, big band, jazz, and slow-jam styles in their covers of popular top-40 hits, is coming to the TLA later in October. Read more »
I remember how obsessed I was with Danity Kane while following their every move on Diddy‘s MTV series, Making The Band: I love their classic bangers “Damaged” and “Showstopper.” Now, after a five-year hiatus, the girls have returned with their new single “Lemonade“…and as a trio.

Eighties pop star, gay icon and the karma chameleon himself, Boy George, is coming to Philadelphia‘s TLA on April 18th to promote his latest album, This is What I Do, and we’ve got five pairs of tickets to give away!
The album is a comeback of sorts for the singer-songwriter, who recently announced he’s on track to beating a longtime drug and alcohol addiction. He’s looking great, sounding fabulous, and the new album — the first all-new studio work since 1995’s Cheapness and Beauty — is getting solid reviews. The Guardian actually called it “the comeback of 2013.”
To win tickets to the show, fill in your name and email in the box below. Each day around 5 p.m. I will randomly choose a winner and email them with info on how to pick up their tickets. Entries get wiped out daily, so be sure to submit every day. You can find details about the show here.
This much is clear after the proposed Warehouse Cinema’s second trip before the Northern Liberties Neighbors Association (NLNA) Zoning Committee on Feb. 24: While the committee and its neighbors generally like the idea, they’re not going to let it sail through without ironclad assurances about two things.
One, that it will be a place where people go to see movies with food and drink on the side and not a bar and restaurant where people can catch a flick.
Two, that the crowds and noise won’t spill over onto nearby streets — or even the desolate block of North Sixth Street this project will enliven.
