Show & Tale: Scars, Tats & Piercings
6:30pm
Join me for an evening of telling the stories etched into our skins.
Many of us are physically changed. Some by our own design (to commemorate that new found love; to forget that painful break-up; to show the world your allegiance to an author, a musician, a way of thinking). Some by our own run-in with an accident or mistake (like that time you had the situation with that car window) or an illness. And some by our need to just change.
With these changes come stories. Come show us your life story etched into your skin! Of course you are welcome to simply come to look & listen.
https://www.facebook.com/events/1487919244825703/
Baring skin & souls, Martie

Underground sounds of the island of enchantment featuring legendary Puertorican shoegaze band Un.Real, and Philly's post Punk Veterans stellarscope
9:00pm
Philadelphia post punk veterans Stellarscope are a well structured band, with the experience behind them to take on new directions and challenges whilst retaining the core of the output. Their latest album titled 'The end is near, I'm not prepared' is scheduled for release in March 2014. On their new record their focus was to create more sonically charged fast paced postpunk indiepo shoegaze anthems that would appeal to a broader audience. Their music has appeared in many compilations and tribute albums, documentaries as well as on MTV, A&E, Discovery Channel, Alli Sports TV, and more. For fans of wavves, a place to bury strangers, the jesus and mary chain, the ramones, manhattan love suicides, etc.

The Vacant Stalls
11:00pm
It's rare to hear a band that doesn't sound like anything you've ever heard, and rarer still to hear one that also puts a smile on your face. How many great bands turn their backs on putting out the same old shit only to release records so calculatingly 'out there' they feel like math homework? They forget that music is supposed to be fun. The Stalls will never forget. With a touch of 50s Rock & Roll, 60s Psych, 70s Punk, 80s New Wave and 90s Nostalgia, The Vacant Stalls channel the past but sound like little else right now; a band searching for rediscovery unfortunately situated in the constantly-shifting present.

Talking Band presents The Golden Toad, Part IV - Written and Directed by Paul Zimet. Songs by Ellen Maddow and Elizabeth Swados

Since its founding in 1974 by Paul Zimet, Ellen Maddow, and Tina Shepard--all former members of Joseph Chaikin's seminal Open Theater--The Talking Band has remained a cornerstone of New York City's avant-garde theater community. Ben Brantley of The New York Times recently called them "one of the boldest and most venerable politically minded companies in New York experimental theater." American Theater magazine has deemed them "one of the most exceptional theater companies in the country." The Golden Toad exemplifies the Talking Band's artistry. Written Ellen Maddow and Paul Zimet, and directed by Zimet, and featuring songs by Ellen Maddow and Elizabeth Swados, the work investigates the essence of character and identity, tracking a diverse set of characters over years and shifting circumstances

Jackie Paladino
11:30pm
Born in New York and raised in central New Jersey, Jackie Paladino is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter whose voice has been compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Billie Holiday, and Adele. She was introduced to the piano at the age of six, and developed her understanding of storytelling and performance through off-Broadway theatre, dance competitions, and musical vocational school. It wasn't until Jackie returned to her birth state to attend the music theatre program at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts that she discovered her true calling. "When everyone else was memorizing lines to songs and stories, I was writing my own stories through song, belting out the tunes of Etta James, Duffy, and Regina Spektor along the way." Always an avid reader of poetry, she found herself delving deeply into the works of Leonard Cohen and Fiona Apple, entranced by the precision and mystery of their word choice. As an artist, Ms. Paladino seeks to combine this sense of lyric perfectionism and her urgency to "mold the ugly into something beautiful" along with the power and soul of her favorite songstresses. She is a Bloomworld Music Artist and is managed by Hakim Bell.
