Triumphant Pride Lineup

Jade Starling and Oh My Josh set to perform in Old City

Bruce Yelk’s Triumphant Pride (June 12) at Mad River (4-8 p.m.) in Old City kicks off after the official Philly Pride Presents event at Penn’s Landing – just one block away. The fifth year for the event, Yelk says, “Guests will be treated to discount drinks and, most importantly, air conditioning. Following an afternoon in the hot summer sun on Penn’s Landing, there’s no better remedy than a cold beer and some much-needed shade.”

This year, he also tells us Jade Starling (a flashback queen from Pretty Poison – she’s famous for the 1987 hit “Catch Me I’m Falling”) and Oh My Josh, a pop star straight out of New York City who’s been compared to Lady Gaga thanks to his over-the-top look and sound, will be performing their hits. Oh My Josh releases his second album in June, just in time for his Philly debut.

Starling will also be shooting her new music video for “8 Daze” in Philly. “Calling all hot guys,” says Yelk. “Jade wants Philly’s finest guys in her video.” If that’s you, send your photo to [email protected] or post it on Facebook.

Here’s a clip of Oh My Josh singing “Out My Face:”
