Philly F/M Festival kicks off next week

leave a comment »

The Philly Film/Music Festival is coming up next week(Sept 22-Sept 25)  and it’s playing host to some wonderful shows throughout the city. Some of the artists that will be playing are Sharon Van Etten, Marissa Nadler, Toy Soldiers, Nicos Gun, Creeping Weeds, Deadmau5, and many, many more.

You can either buy tickets to individual shows or buy a one-time badge that will get you into any show you’d like. That can be found HERE. BUT if you buy a badge through JUMP Magazine, you’ll get it for $30 cheaper. So I would highly recommend doing that.

Complete schedule and list of artists can be found below…

St Vincent released “Strange Mercy” + playing Union Transfer in November

leave a comment »

St Vincent @ the Sanctuary of the First Unitarian Church in 2010

The lovely St Vincent(aka Annie Clark) released her fantastic third record Strange Mercy on Tuesday via 4AD and received raved(and well deserved) reviews across the board for it. Ms. Clark showcases her angelic voice and her hauntingly beautiful music extremely well on the album. More so than on her previous two records. One thing that stays true throughout all her LPs is the way she completely dominates the guitar. No one out there can play like her. Check out a few of her new songs below.

She announced a tour quite a while ago that will see her play Union Transfer on Wednesday, November 2nd. Tickets for the show can be found HERE. (St Vincent’s last show in Philly sold out so it might be wise to grab tickets sooner than later.)
