Out of Town Films is a group of friends dedicated to the art of music documentation that has collected nearly 50 video recordings of some of the best indie talent to pass through Philadelphia this year. Exclusive interviews and an intimate, front row seat to Dr. Dog, Nicos Gun, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Delta Rae, and Margot & The Nuclear So and So's, among many others, is just a taste of what is available on their Youtube page.
This Wednesday at Johnny Brenda's, Out of Town Films will be kicking-off their first in a series of showcase concerts featuring Free Energy and Edison. Out of Town Films' co-founder Michael James Murray plays lead guitar in Edison, so this night will truly be about celebrating. Plus, they will be streaming their debut album Living Room this week on SoundCloud so you can get a taste for the sweet tunes you can expect to hear. Stay up to date with Edison's other upcoming happenings by following their Tumblr and Twitter.

Sammy Slice's New Party at The Barbary on Friday, October 12th was just as fun as we were promised. He rocked the house again with awesome tracks from Frank Ocean, Boys Noize, The Weeknd, and Kanye. Be there next time or be square!
Scott Schuman and his very talented photographer girlfriend and source of inspiration, Garance Dore visited Philadelphia to promote his new book, The Sartorialist Closer. There was Q&A session with some members of the media as well as a public book signing at The Barnes Foundation. Ouigi Theodore of The Brooklyn Circus moderated the Q&A and got some great tidbits from Schuman regarding his approach to photography.
Why street fashion verses indoor studio shots?
“I’d rather go out and find the image and then capture what I’m seeing as opposed to creating it myself. I like to react to what I see more than try and create something.
