There are some cool events happening in Philly this weekend- first up, my good friend Kevin Margitich is having an art opening this Friday, March 4th over at Sweet Mabel in Narberth. And to sweeten the pot, he’s home-brewed some special beers just for the occasion, so get there early before the well runs dry. The show is entitled The Trail to Manatawny which, roughly translated, means “the trail to where we meet to drink. You get the picture. Good times start at 7pm.
Then, on Saturday night, stop by the Slignluff Gallery where they’ll be hosting an opening bash for their March artist, skater/photographer Jai Tanju. The show’s entitled Heavy, and features some pretty sick interactive metal photo frames. That party gets going at 6pm. 11 W. Girard Street in scenic downtown Fishtown.
On the music side of things, pick up the latest issue of the City Paper which includes a nice little interview with Curly Castro (no relation) talking about the release of his excellent new long player Winston’s Appeal. You can download that here for free. And while you’re at it, do yourself a favor and grab Zilla Rocca’s new Bad Weather Classic, a strong collection of dark and gritty, film-noir style cinematic hip-hop tracks. Gotta admit I’m addicted to the first cut, Tiger Heli – 130 seconds of top shelf paranoia.
And speaking of that video, co-director Justin Clowes also just dropped a tasty new video for East Hundred, featuring some beautiful super 8 footage he shot during their tour this past summer. Well done, my man.
